HSB225S3R HDD Rack

This HDD rack lets you install two 2.5” SATA hard drives or solid-state drives into a single 3.5” front bay. With configurable RAID support, the SATA drive rack provides an ideal data storage solution.

Flexible storage solution

Configure and arrange your drives for increased drive capacity, or add data redundancy, with built-in hardware RAID functionality. The HDD rack offers software and operating system independent operations and with multiple RAID options, such as RAID 0, RAID 1, spanning, or JBOD, you can build the data storage solution that works best for you.

Hot swap your SATA drives

This SATA backplane is trayless and hot-swappable, which makes it easy to install and remove your drives from your computer system when required, without having to open the case every time. It also provides a more convenient way to create backups for data recovery and archiving.

Designed for durability and trouble-free use

The removable hard-drive bay/backplane features durable aluminum construction for long-lasting performance. The SATA backplane also has LED indicators for power and hard drive activity, and drive status, which makes it easy to monitor the status of your hard drives and RAID array.

Can I hot-swap SATA drives with this mobile rack?

Yes, this mobile rack does support hot-swapping of SATA drives. To use this feature, it is required that the SATA port is set to Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) mode and hot-swapping is enabled. On most motherboards, this is performed within the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) or the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). If you are using a SATA controller card, consult the motherboard manufacturer's technical documentation for the correct steps to accomplish this.
