Hard drive enclosures offer hot-swappable storage for server environments, usually with SATA III transfer speeds of up to 6Gbps when connected with a mini SAS interface. 1U rack mountable chassis designs also typically feature built-in fans and compatibility with RAID controllers for enhanced storage applications.
For consumer, SOHO or small team applications, typical 3.5" SATA III 2-bay or 4-bay hard drive enclosures offer fast transfer speeds of up to 6Gbps (when connected using a Thunderbolt or USB 3.0 cable) along with external hardware RAID for enhanced performance and data security.
When transferring data to / from external drives, HDD enclosures are ideal for resource intensive storage applications, off-loading of large data or backing-up large files. Again, most enclosures offer a built-in fan(s) for improved air circulation, with metal cases offering a durable drive housing while maximising heat dissipation under load.
