Addonics Technologies (www.addonics.com) announced the Addonics 5-IN-3 Drive Chassis, an inexpensive storage solution that lets you significantly increase the density of storage devices in a small space.
The new product features a drive bracket that enables users to install up to five 3.5″ drives into many desktop PC, server or rack mount systems via three standard 5.25” drive bays.
The 5-IN-3 Drive Chassis increases by 67% the total number of 3.5″ storage devices that can be installed into multi-bay storage chassis or systems with three or more 5.25″ drive bays. For example, on the Addonics Storage Tower III that has three 5.25” drive bays, as many as ten hard drives can be installed by mounting five, instead of three, 2.5″ Double Snap-In drives into the 5-IN-3 Drive Chassis. Constructed with heavy gauge sheet metal, the 5-IN-3 Drive Chassis offers a sturdy frame and efficient heat dissipation.
The 5-IN-3 Drive Chassis is a flexible solution because you can mix different types of 3.5” storage devices such as 3.5” hard drives, various types of 2.5” removable drive systems and Addonics family of internal flash reader/writers. The new product gives customers the ability to incorporate this chassis into other Addonics products, such as its line of Storage Towers and 4U Racks. The new Drive Chassis can also be installed into any PC tower with three 5.25″ drive bays.
It is an ideal solution for adding more hard drives into standard storage chassis for data centers, cloud computing, engineering, research, broadcasting, hosting, and many other storage applications.
The 5-IN-3 Drive Chassis has a MSRP of $49.
