The DataTale SMART 4-Bay Thunderbolt RAID Enclosure from Oyen Digital is an enclosure that provides JBOD (non RAID), RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10, and HyperDuo in combination with Thunderbolt technology. Its design offers efficient heat dissipation. The upright stand of the HDDs, combined with the rugged aluminum case and low-dB fans, maximizes airflow and vents in the case exhaust heat.

The unit features RAID security, hot-swappable disks, and two Thunderbolt ports which are very convenient when you want to daisy-chain other Thunderbolt devices. Onboard LED indicators keep users apprised of the system, connection, fan error and disk status/access. Patented SmartGuider is a trayless fixing mechanism that equips auto-limiting segmented screws to prevent hard drive/SSD damage from over-tightening when they are installed. It also positions them upright to maximize the airflow, while heat exhausts via surrounding vents. RAID MASTER (GUI) allows you to configure multiple RAID tasks, set the alerting feature to report any system problems, and customize storage activities for your RAID system.

The RAID enclosure also provides a unique mode to utilize both solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) in the same system. Its HyperDuo feature needs to have at least one HDD with up to three SSDs. With the HyperDuo feature, the enclosure becomes a hybrid unit to bring out optimal performance in both hard drives and solid state drives. This feature is configured via RAID MASTER under two types of RAID modes. Safe RAID mode provides optimal data protection by mirroring data from the SSD to the hard drive, for maximum resiliency. The capacity mode combines both the SSD and HDD capacities, but reads the data using the SSD performance.
