Hard Drive Enclosure

Are you searching for a high-quality hard drive enclosure to upgrade your current server storage system?

We shall guide you in making the best and right selection based on your business, or data center requirements.

Choosing a Suitable Hard Drive Enclosure

Before deciding on which storage enclosure to purchase, consider the following:

1. Storage Enclosure USB Connection Type

When you plan on using a USB cable for external data transfer, you can choose a storage enclosure with either USB 2 or USB 3 USB ports. You will encounter no challenges since both can use the same cable type.

However, for high-speed data transfer from SATA 3 or SATA 2 drives, a storage enclosure with USB 3 or USB 3.1 port provisions will work well with your SATA drives.

A combination of USB 3 and FireWire interfaces will greatly enhance your high-speed data transfer.

2. Hard Drive Interface To Match Hard Drive Enclosure

Before making any purchase, ensure that your storage enclosure is compatible with your storage device interface.

If, for instance, you plan on using a 2.5 SATA Hard Drive, only consider buying a SATA 2.5 hard disk storage enclosure.

Likewise, if you plan on using a 3.5" SATA drive, go for a SATA 3.5" enclosure that comes with an inbuilt AC power supply unit.

3. Hard Drive Enclosure Material

Since your storage enclosure material determines the level of your physical data protection, you must focus on the material that fits your requirements.

The 3 main storage enclosure materials are:

  1. Metallic Storage Enclosure
  2. Polycarbonate Enclosures
  3. Plastic Server Enclosures

For maximum hard drive protection and efficiency in heat dissipation, invest in an alloy-based metallic storage enclosure. It will serve you better and longer.

Polycarbonate storage enclosures, also known as Personal Computer (PC) casings are suitable for general use and offer a good level of data protection.

Where physical data security or data protection is not your main concern, a plastic storage enclosure with an aesthetic feel will be a suitable choice.

4. External Hard Drive Portability

How about if you are looking for a convenient external portable backup hard drive with high-speed data transfer capability?

Well, in that case, purchasing an external tool-free 2.5" SSD HDD enclosure with USB 3.0 port provision is a great option.

5. Network Storage Needs. Network Data Storage

When your data storage has increased and there is a need for data sharing, a robust Network-Attached Storage (NAS) with RAID enclosure is a good investment.

However, your selected NAS should have enough drive bays to satisfy your storage appetite!

We also have Other Enclosures that are highly recommended due to their high storage-capacity and superior performance efficiency.

They come with inbuilt cooling units. One such is the high-performance 86774TU IBM Blade Center E-8677
