Choose between HJB (Software RAID) or RCB (Hardware RAID) options:
/HJB = LSI 2308 PCIe Gen3 HBA adapter
/RCB = LSI 2208 PCIe Gen2 RAID adapter with Maintaince free Battey Unit

The choose between 2 processor options, Low and Standard power:
For archive and backup /LV3 is recommended
For high performance with 10Gbit ethernet and iSCSI /SV3 is recommeded
/LV3 = Intel® Xeon® E3-1230Lv3 (1.8-2.8GHz Quad-Core HT, 25Watts)
/SV3 = Intel® Xeon® E3-1230v3 (3.3-3.7GHz Quad-Core HT, 80Watts)

Choose between 4 memory options:
Note: For optimal performance in non-archive/backup configurations, Open-e recommends 1GB of memory for each 1TB of storage.
/8G = 2x 4GB DDR3-1600 ECC
/16G = 2x 8GB DDR3-1600 ECC
for 24GB or 32GB add 16GB memory upgrade kit to /8G or /16G model

The BrontaStor 822R-E4 provides all the performance and features of an enterprise rack mount server, except we've removed the rack cabinet requirement and killed the noise. Now you can have an enterprise server in an elegant NAS format that can be used in the office, school or studio.
Unlike a typical business NAS, the BrontaStor is built using Intel enterprise server technology throughout, features LSI HBA or hardware RAID, IPMI and single or dual redundant hot-swap PSUs.

Powered by a Gen4 Intel® Xeon® E3v3 processor, the BrontaStor 822R-E4 is powerful enough to support many users and complex storage configurations. Supporting up to 32GB ECC 1600MHz memory, 4 low-profile expansion PCI express slots and 12 drive bays, the BrontaStor is priced competitively with business NAS products, yet offers significantly more flexibility, features and value for money.

A 3yr warranty comes as standard
