Radion intros new RAID 5 6TB storage systems
Radion has introduced several GearRAID quad-bay data storage subsystems with enhanced data protection when the drives are configured as a RAID 5 array. The storage devices integrate an Oxford936QSE chipset, enabling four 2TB drives to be configured as a RAID 5 array with a maximum of 6TB of overall storage space. The drives are capable of automatically backing-up data, while one hard drive can fail without any loss of data. Each storage system also supports eSATA, 1394b and USB 2.0 host interfaces.
The GearRAID storage subsystems come in two different designs, either as a standalone tower or a rackmount module. The tower provides a durable aluminum case and a simulated piano-varnish front panel, while the rackmount device features an aluminum housing with a dull finish.
Pricing and availability for the GearRAID quad-bay RAID 5 storage subsystems has yet to be released.
