The Accusys ExaSAN A12S2-PS 12-bay PCIe RAID Level 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, SAS/SATA, the newest member of the ExaSAN family of storage solutions provides high speed data transfers up to 1200MB/sec while scaling capacity from 12 drives to 48 drives. With 6TB drives supported, a single A12S2-PS disk channel can manage 288TB. It features PCI Express 2.0 technology capable of 1200MB/s that can easily edit multiple HD, 2K and 4K DPX video streams, even stereo 3D editing workflows. The ExaSAN A12S2-PS is the key storage component of an ExaSAN solution enabling collaborative shared storage editing workflows possible for the budget conscious.
Highly scalable, the A12S2-PS brings cost-performance savings to expandable storage systems for broadcast and post-production tasks such as color grading, film scanning, effects, finishing, 4K & 5K red format editing, and much more.

The A12S2-PS is able to connect three A12S2-SJ JBOD systems.
Users can deploy their storage with an ExaSAN switch to construct a SAN solution.
Certification: RoHS, CE, FCC, C-Tick, BSMI
Warranty: 3-Year Limited Warranty for RAID and JBOD systems and within components. 1-Year Limited Warranty for HBA and cable.
1200MB/s speeds to edit HD, 2K and 4K DPX
Equalization Mode - by selecting the RAIDGuard X GUI, the “Performance Equalization mode” can be used to prevent frame drops, ensure smooth I/Os, and achieve stable performance with the smallest peaks in bandwidth fluctuation, meaning that users can regain as much as 20% in dropped storage.
DLP (Disk Lag Proof) - RAIDGuard X also utilizes DLP technology. In the event of a single hard disk read speed performance degradation, delay or aging, other hard disks can resume stable I/O data transfer of corrected data in real-time based on RAID parity.
2U 12-bay form factor - the A12S2-PS only occupies a 2U space providing 20Gb Bandwidth with a max. storage capacity of 72TB.
Swappable modular design - the disk array, RAID controller, fan, and power supply modules are swappable dramatically facilitating both maintenance and system reliability.
All ExaSAN storage solutions utilize the RAIDGuardX GUI system to help manage and monitor the status of all parameters including power, fan, temperature, and RAID controllers.
Highly Expandable - the A12S2-PS supports the latest 6TB external hard drives, it also has a 6Gb SAS JBOD expansion option (A12S2-SJ), permitting the RAID user to add up to three JBOD systems (A12S2-SJ) for up to 288TB of storage. Using a Dual Port QSFP HBA allows a user's wokstation to connect to two A12S2-PS and the combined speed can reach 40Gb, suitable for demanding Ultra-high speed applications.
SAN Ready - by adding an optional ExaSAN PCIe Switch, developed by Accusys, the A12S2-PS permits multiple workstations to simultaneously access and edit from a single central storage system.
