 expansion will continue over 100TB. The number will be limited to 2-3 per week in order not to overcrowd the servers

 

Priority will be given to previous customers


Launchbox 32TB will be available this week or next weekend /HDD version as well/ expansion will continue over 100TB. The number will be limited to 3-4 per week in order not to overcrowd the servers

 

Priority will be given to previous customers



90TB Hyperspin will be available later /probably next week or week after / as there is a very high interest in this product, the number will be limited to 3-4 per week in order not to overcrowd the servers

 

Priority will be given to previous customers



I prepare these versions as 3 x 32TB send 1 each - you buy 1 part, I prepare and send, you buy 2 parts, I prepare and send and so on.

After a few months of testing, unfortunately I won't prepare the 80TB version because it doesn't make sense.

The quality, transfers, RAID capabilities of the available 5 disk enclosures are not satisfactory - I have checked ALL available over the last few months. Problems -.

RAID crashed on a few,

RAID on 5 16TB drives did not work on a few - JBOD or SPAN would work, but that is not the point

Data transfer speeds were 100 MB/s on RAID, whereas you can get up to 250 MB/s on a single drive.

The main problem is the use of RAID controllers that are 5, 6 or even more years old - that's why there are no full USB 3.1, 3.2 or even 4.0 controllers available for SATA drives - such solutions are available for SSDs and NVME / 3.1 controllers in a 4-5 drive enclosure are so named just because of USB C, but in reality they are 3.0 connectors.

Selling something like this I would feel that I am cheating customers.

And I see that other retailers have stopped using these enclosures too.

 

it takes about 3-4 weeks to prepare each part depending on the queue
