designAlthough a little dated, the casing is very compact and certainly more manageable than giant devices like the Promsie Pegasus 3. It is very functional and with two rear fans will keep the device cool throughout. Additionally, the inclusion of a real time LCD panel to give you information about the health and status of the drives is an excellent touch from Areca.
featuresWith blisteringly fast Thunderbolt3 as the connection of choice, the is going to be easily one of the most affordable 4 bay TB3 DAS enclosures available on the market. Likewise with control over the system and information from that front panel and RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6 and RAID 10 being supported, you are looking at a great TB storage solution.
performanceWith the inclusion of a dual core ARM based RoC (RAID on chip) as well as 1GB of memory (twice that, in both regards, to their nearest rivals) it is in sheers performance and speed that the Areca ARC-8050T3-4 really shows it's power!
valueUltimately if you are looking for a stable and comprehensive direct attached storage RAID enclosure, with Thunderbolt 3 for your Mac or windows system - look no further than the Areca ARC-8050T3-4, ARC-8050T3-8, ARC-8050T3-12 and ARC-8050T3-6

  CONS
designThis black and silver chassis may appear a little dated in design and a combination of plastic and metal may put some off. Likewise the two fans are a pinch noiser than other DAS storage enclosures. Though you can turn the fans off.
featuresWith just Thunderbolt 3 ports, you will not see additional access like USB 3.0 to fall back on for non TB3 enabled PC or Mac devices.
performanceIf you are looking for a device that is going to do more than act as a slave enclosure for your data - you should look at the QNAP TVS-1282T3 NAS+DAS combination device
valueThose unfamiliar with the areca brand may seek refuge in well known brands like Promise and WD. However I would recommend Areca as a long standing and reliable company for your storage needs.

    Areca Thunderbolt3 RAID Enclosure ARC-8050T3-6 RAID options

    • JBOD- is a cost-effective network storage solution. If you have a lot of temporarily data to store, JBODs are an economical solution. Mind that the data is not critical or you have an effective backup scheme in place. JBOD is either a single or number of disks which are grouped together and presented to the Operating System as a single volume, called 'Spanning'. If you lose a single disk in the JBOD then you possibly will lose data, as the concept of a JBOD does not include not fault tolerance.
    • RAID 0 is ideal for non-critical storage of data that have to be read/written at a high speed, such as on a video editing station or an image retouching. RAID 0 offers great performance, both in read and write operations. All storage capacity is used, there is no overhead.
    • RAID 1 (mirrored drive) is ideal for critical storage, like accounting systems. It is also suitable for small servers in which only two data drives will be used (disc mirroring). It offers excellent read speed and a write-speed that is comparable to that of a single drive. In case a drive fails, data do not have to be rebuild, they just have to be copied to the replacement drive (mirroring hdd ). It can be used as back up mirror.
    • RAID 5 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. It is ideal for file and application servers that have a limited number of data drives. Very fast read data transactions while write data transactions are bit slower. In case if drive fails, you still have access to all data, even while the failed drive is being replaced and system rebuilds the data on the new drive.
    • RAID 6 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. Similar to RAID 5, read data transactions are very fast. Two drives can fail and you still have access to all data, even while the failed drives are being replaced. It makes it more secure.
    • RAID 10 combines pros and cons of RAID 0 and RAID 1 in one single system. If one drive fails, the rebuild time is very fast because data being copied from the surviving mirror to a new drive.

      Will this run at 40 GB/s on a windows machine with a thunderbolt 3 port?
      Thank you for the question.  This does have the potential to reach 40GB/s, however, it would very much depend on the drives you are using.  With lower spec drives no it wouldn't.  With higher spec it does have the potential.  Please contact our sales team for more specific assistance.
