The external JBOD enclosure can accommodate a total of eight SATA I / II / III hard drives or SSDs. It consists largely of aluminium and is therefore stable and dissipates heat very well. The cooling of the drives is achieved due to two temperature controlled 80mm fans on the back and corresponding air-inlet support below the drive bays on the front. The door of the enclosure can also be locked. The display of the JBOD system informs through various LEDs about operation, fan, interfaces and disk usage. The existing external interfaces USB 3.0 and eSATA add the ability to use hard drives without any capacity constraints.
Among the capabilities of the JBOD enclosure are various other convenient functions. Such as, for example, the strapless hard disk installation and energy-saving standby mode. As well as hot-swap capability, plug & play and support for both Windows and MAC systems. For users with larger demands the ICY BOX IB-RD3680SU3 enclosure provides support of RAID Level 0 (striping) / 10/5/50 / BIG (Spanning).
