Eight hot-swappable bays support up to 3 TB SATA or SAS drives that can be configured into multiple Ext3, Ext4, and XFS formatted RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60 or JBOD volumes with optional AES-256 bit encryption.

Further expansion is supported via three PCI-e slots (one 4-lane and two 8-lane), which can be used to add additional USB 3.0 or eSATA ports or a 10 Gb Ethernet adapter.
