CalDigit VR Mini 2 overview

  • 1Description

The VR mini 2 4TB 2-Bay USB 3.0 Raid Array from CalDigit is encased in 100% aluminum making it lightweight and durable while also efficient at dissipating heat. It has a USB 3.0 and FireWire 800 interface, and comes with two carefully selected, tested, and approved 2TB 5400 rpm drives to deliver data transfer rates of up to 200 MB/s. This raid array supports RAID 0, 1, and JBOD; however, the USB 3.0 interface will only accept RAID 0, 1, and Spanning. At the front of this device are LED status indicators as well as a LCD display where you can set up and monitor your RAID configurations. On the other hand, you can install the included RAID Tool software to monitor and configure it from your computer. This array can be bus powered if you're using the FireWire 800 interface cables, otherwise a power adapter is included should you need to plug it into a standard outlet.

Aluminum Design
The CalDigit VR mini 2 is made from 100% aluminum making it light yet durable. Aluminum also helps with heat dissipation, and is completely recyclable.
LCD Display
The CalDigit VR mini 2 has a visual LCD display on the front of the device that allows you to configure it, and view basic information without the need of any software. This is incredibly useful if the VR mini 2 is being used on location, and allows you to instantly know the status of your storage.
Removable Drive Design
The VR mini 2's Drive Modules are hot swappable, meaning that you do not have to turn off the VR mini 2 before taking them out.
LED Indicators
The VR mini 2 has LED status lights on the front of the unit that act as a visual indicator as to the status of the hard drives inside the unit. If the drives are healthy they light up green. The LED lights also flash when they are in use, allowing you to instantly see if your VR mini 2 is processing a task.
Daisy Chain
If you're using a multiple VR mini 2 set up, you can daisy chain your units via the Firewire ports. This is a great clutter-free way of organizing your multiple devices efficiently.
30μ Gold-Plated Molex SATA & Amphenol Interface Connectors
The Molex SATA connectors, USB 3.0, and FireWire 800 interfaces are plated with 30μ inch of gold to ensure reliability throughout its lifetime. These connectors also allow the hard drive to attach directly to the board itself. Data and power are transferred through the board, removing the need to use insecure SATA and power cables, creating less points of failure.
Smart Storage
The VR mini 2 includes a free piece of Mac, and PC software called RAID Tool. This software allows you to monitor, and configure your VR mini 2 from your computer. You do not have to use this software, as everything on the VR mini 2 can be configured via the LCD display on the front of the unit. This extra option is included if you prefer to monitor the VR mini 2 from your computer. With RAID Tool, you'll have access to and can: Configure RAID, Settings, Temperature, Health, Status, Email Notification, Event Log, and Firmware Updates.
