Model Capacity
CADA016SA8-B 16TB (8x 2TB)
CADA008SA8-B 8TB (8x 1TB)
CADA004SA8-B 4TB (8x 500GB)

One gigabyte (GB) = one billion bytes. One terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. The total accessible capacity may be less and actual capacity depends on the operating environment and formatting.

Total usuable capacity in RAID devices depend on RAID mode. RAID 1 (mirrored) arrays have half capacity, RAID 5 arrays lose the equivalent of the capacity of one drive per set (one of four drives in this case). 8-bay models are comprised of two 4-bay arrays, and therefore has the total usable capacity of six out of the total eight drives.

*Windows XP (and earlier) and Mac OS 10.4 (and earlier) support only MBR partition type, which can recognize up to 2TB per volume. For CADA-SA8-B disk arrays with more than 2TB total volume (after RAID), multiple partitions of 2TB or less will be required. Windows XP x64 edition, Windows 2003 Server SP1, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Mac OS 10.5 and newer support GBT partition type, which will allow a volume of more than 2TB to be recognized.
