StarTech Drive Rack for 2.5 Inch SAS/SATA Drives with Backplane

Now it’s easy to increase the storage capabilities of your server or PC while protecting data integrity. This one-bay mobile rack backplane lets you install and easily remove a 2.5in SAS or SATA HDD or SDD in a 3.5in external expansion bay on your desktop PC or server. It’s ideal for system integrators and administrators looking for flexible management of data storage.


Easy compatibility
• The backplane provides an easy, convenient way to install and swap drives between desktops or servers. It supports both SAS and SATA 2.5in drives ranging from 5 to 15mm in height. To maximize the performance of your hard drives, the mobile rack supports SAS II and SATA III for transfer speeds up to 6 Gbps when paired with a compatible controller.

Convenient, interchangeable drive trays
• Many fast-paced work environments require drives to be removed regularly. This convenient backplane lets you hot swap between systems quickly, without shutting down.
