Record music, edit video, or work with files while staying mobile using the StudioRAID mini 4TB 2-Bay USB 3.0 RAID Array (2 x 2TB HDD) from Glyph Technologies. Pre-configured as HFS+ for Mac but also compatible with Windows via a simple reformat, this array connects to your system using its one micro-USB 3.0 port, two FireWire 800 ports, or one eSATA port with data transfer speeds up to 250 MB/s. The StudioRAID mini is equipped with two 2.5" SATA drive bays and a total capacity of 4TB, which is configured as 2 x 2TB 5400 rpm hard drives.
To help facilitate its functionality within a production environment, the StudioRAID comes pre-configured as a RAID 0, which helps enhance performance by spreading data across two drives and is also compatible with RAID 1, which offers data redundancy. Cooling is accomplished using a temperature-controlled quiet fan and while this RAID array is bus-powered via its FireWire 800 port, an international AC adapter, compatible with US, UK, and EU power sockets, is included. Also included is a USB 3.0 cable and a FireWire cable. The StudioRAID mini is protected by hardware, data recovery, and overnight replacement warranties.
RAID 0 is an operating mode designed for fast transfer rates by striping the data across two drives, while RAID 1 is used for redundancy, as it instantly and automatically mirrors your data
