PRO RXg2 & RXe back
Require Additional Performance or Capacity...

No Problem just add additional PRO RXg2 or PRO RXe via the expansion port!

Take a look at the left side diagram. In addition to connecting the PRO RXg2 or RXe to a Mac or PC via x8 lane PCIe slot, the PRO RXe comes ready to work in a share environment with a high performance 10GbE interface. The PRO RXg2 & RXe is available now with an x8 expansion slot to add the performance that you need without using an extra PCIe slot on your workstation. 

The Expansion port, provides an additional x8 PCIe Gen2 speed, not just doubling your capacity but doubling your performance, as well.

40Gb per second HBE

HBE Host Buss Extender

x8 PCIe cable
The PRO RXg2& RXe Gen2 Host Bus Extender (HBE) is an adapter that is installed in a desktop computer with an available PCIe x8 slot. The HBE implements the latest 40Gb/sec PCI-express Gen2 Extender technology, enabling the extension of the computer’s PCI-express signals to the PRO RXg2 & RXe enclosure. The HBE is super fast, power efficient and runs cool.  The HBE is capable of up to 8 lanes of the PCI-express Gen2 speed, enabling the RAID controller that resides inside the PRO RXg2 & RXe enclosure to run at full speed and cool, this also reduces heat buildup that otherwise would be inside the computer.

The full metal secure locking PCI-express Extender Cable connects the HBE and PRO RXg2 & RXe enclosure, up to 10 meters can be used for machine room connectivity.

RAID Protected

The truth is, disk drives will fail, and they will fail at just the worst time. Don’t give it a chance to ruin your day. RAID 3, 5 or 6 protection schemes are the most cost-efficient approach to insuring workflow continuation. Should a drive fail during your last render before your final tape out, don’t sweat it, the hardware RAID protection will keep your workflow going even with one or more drives down.

RAID Manager GUIRAID Management GUI

A web browser accessed RAID Console provides quick and easy RAID management. The PRO RXg2 & RXe come pre-configured for Mac OS X in RAID 5 protection mode, so it might not be necessary to access the RAID Console initially. But, should you want to change the configuration or manage the disk drives, you are just a couple of clicks away from the RAID Console.

Highly configurable for single RAID or multiple RAIDs with various RAID levels are easily managed using the RAID Console management interface. 

Event notification with e-mail, Event Log Views, Controller and drive temperature monitoring are but a few of the full set of professional grade management tools.

PRO RXg2 & RXe Digital Workflow SAN Environment for PRO RXg2, RXe and PRO series products.

From time to time you might need to move the data from one suite to another, or from studio to on-location. The Dulce's PRO series are designed specifically for the digital workflow.

The all Metal Drive Tray

The PRO RX g2 & RXe are built with all metal drive trays, no plastic here!. As a result, the drives runs cool and provide for a more efficient cooling for the entire unit - and it looks great!.
