NewerTech Guardian MAXimus mini 4TB (2 x 2TB) Two-Bay eSATA RAID Array storage solution provides Plug-and-Play, mirrored data backup and protection in a space-saving footprint. In the pre-configured RAID 1 MAXProtect mode, the Guardian MAXimus mini guards against data loss and costly system downtime by writing the same information in real-time to create a mirrored copy of up to 2TB of data.
For those seeking performance over redundancy, the Guardian MAXimus mini can be easily switched via the LCM screen menu to the RAID 0 MAXPerform mode for up to 4TB of high speed performance storage. Whatever your preference, the Guardian MAXimus mini offers maximum performance for editing videos or reliability with data backups.
The Guardian MAXimus mini is ready to go wherever your traveling. It is FireWire bus-powered (no AC adapter required) and weighs as little as 1.24 lb. While compact, the Guardian MAXimus mini comes packed with high performance features including two hard drives, data transfer speeds up to 300 MB/s in RAID 0, and user conveniences such as a front panel LCM screen/control interface for drive and system status monitoring.
The Guardian MAXimus mini works as a backup of financial records, medical files, business projects or any critical data that you simply cannot risk losing. It's always guarding against data loss in RAID 1 by writing the same information in real-time to two separate drives for a mirrored copy. It also protects you from costly system downtime and data restoring after a single hard drive-equipped system crash. Even daily scheduled software driven data backups can't protect you between your last backup and the moment the hard drive fails. By having a second, mirrored copy, all of your data stays backed up and accessible while you replace the failed drive.
