The New A16S3-PS proves to be more than just powerful storage.

With support for 16-bays of both SAS and SATA SSD/HDD and performance speeds of over 2500MB/s (read) and 2100 MB/s (write) the A16S3-PS proves to be both powerful and versatile enough to handle most tasks associated with 4K editing software and storage. The A16S3-PS is based on PCIe3.0 technology offering both impressive performance and capacity, which is why production companies select ExaSAN to avoid high costs and to avoid the complexities associated with more traditional DAS and SAN solutions.
