Overview
  • 1Description

Designed to meet the serious demands of video and audio production work, the 8TB Mercury Rack Pro 8TB (4 x 2TB) 1U Multi-Interface Four-Bay RAID Solution from OWC / Other World Computing is a high-performance, hardware-controlled RAID array that can connect to your computer with four different interfaces. In a 1U rack mount size, the Mercury Rack Pro comes with, and holds, four standard SATA 3.5" 2TB hard disk drives that spin at 7200rpm. The drives total a capacity of 8TB and together come preconfigured as a RAID 5 array; however, you can use the rear-panel to hardware re-configure the drives as a SPAN, a RAID 0, 1, 3, 10, or as a JBOD. The drives are also hot swappable.

In connecting to your computer, the Mercury Rack Pro offers you flexibility and high-speed options with four different kinds of ports. It features one eSATA port, one USB 3.0 port, two FireWire 800 ports, and one FireWire 400 port. For managing your RAID array and backing up your data, the Mercury Rack Pro comes with the following software: OWC RAID Manager Visual Interface, Prosoft Engineering Data Backup 3, Carbon Copy Cloner, and NovaStor NovaBACKUP. It also comes with Intech SpeedTools Utilities, a program for repairing and maintaining your disks. The OWC Mercury Rack Pro is preformatted for use with Macs but is also compatible with Windows computers.

High Capacity
Included in the Mercury Rack Pro are four standard 2TB hard disk drives for a total capacity of 8TB
RAID Options
With the Mercury Rack Pro, you have the option to format your hard disk drives as a SPAN or RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, or 10 configuration. In addition, you have the option to use the drives independently as a JBOD
Multi-Interface
The Mercury Rack Pro offers one eSATA port, two FireWire 800 (1394B) ports, one FireWire 400 (1394A) port, and one USB 3.0 port. It even includes all the necessary connection cables
Swap Drives at Will
When using the Mercury Rack Pro in Independent mode, all four drives appear on your system as individual volumes drives, so you can mix and match drives of any capacity and brand and hot swap the drives
Smart Power
Smart Power regulates power during prolonged periods of inactivity to save operating costs and prolong component lifespan
Flexible Form
The Mercury Rack Pro can easily be converted to a desktop form-factor by simply removing the rack ears with a Phillips screw-driver and installing the included anti-skid, vibration dampening feet
Backed Reliability
The Mercury Rack Pro boasts a 2-year limited warranty
