Flexible Storage and Redundancy
DriveStation Quad provides users the flexibility to easily maximize capacity or protect their data using RAID redundancy. RAID 0 Combine all drives into a single array offering maximum storage capacity with no redundancy. RAID 1 Mirrors the four drives, creating an exact copy of data on each drive for fault tolerance. RAID 5 Stripe the data across all four drives, interspersing parity data to provide an efficient blend of fault tolerance and storage capacity. RAID 10 Mirror two sets of hard drives and combines them into a single array, striping data across all mirrored sets for fault tolerance and increased performance.
Hot-Swappable Hard Drives
DriveStation Quad's hot-swap feature allows you to replace a hard drive in the event of failure without powering down the device. Simply remove the defective drive, insert the new drive, and the data rebuilds while still being available to clients on the network with zero downtime.
