PRO DQ g2 technology affords superior workflow and supports up to 17 real-time streams, depending on the video resolution. It even has tuck away handles for increased portability.
The PRO DQ g2 implements the latest PCI-express Extender technology to provide fast, redundant storage with 16TB capacity. Its PCI-express Gen2 Host Bus Extender enables the extension of the computer's PCI-express signals to the PRO DQ g2 enclosure. The all metal enclosure runs cool and is capable of up to 8 lanes of the PCI-express speed, enabling the RAID controller to run at full speed - 40Gb/s. The PRO DQ g2 measures up to 1174 MB/s in RAID 0 mode and 1010+ MB/s in the drive protected RAID 3 and 5 modes.
The 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb high-performance disk drives are hot-swappable and the Hardware RAID Controller supports RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 3, RAID 5, RAID 6 and JBOD. A web-browser accessed RAID-Console provides quick and easy RAID management and it's compatible with PC, Mac and Linux. The PRO DQ g2 is also laptop compatible with purchase of the optional ExpressCard 34.
