CalDigit VR2 overview

  • 1Description

The VR2 16TB 2-Bay USB 3.0 Raid Array from CalDigit is encased in aluminum making it lightweight and durable while also efficient at dissipating heat. It offers four types of connections: USB 3.0, FireWire 400, FireWire 800, and eSATA, and comes with two carefully selected, tested, and approved 8TB drives to deliver data transfer rates of up to 250 MB/s in RAID 0, or 160 MB/s in RAID 1. This raid array supports RAID 0, 1, Spanning and JBOD; however, the USB 3.0 interface will not accept JBOD configurations. 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. For your protection, this unit has a security lock as well as locking drive modules.

Hardware RAID 0, 1 and JBOD with Quadruple Interface
The CalDigit VR2 features hardware RAID, which provides an independent CPU and dedicated cache memory to manage the RAID volume. This dedicated processor eliminates additional strain from the host system's CPU, allowing applications full access. The quadruple interface supports USB 3.0, FireWire 400, FireWire 800, and eSATA, making the CalDigit VR2 extremely versatile. Two FireWire 800 ports make it easy to daisy chain multiple CalDigit VR2s together without any performance loss.
Modular Design
The CalDigit VR2 uses two hot-swappable drive modules, allowing for easy replacement and expansion.
Cool & Quiet
The energy saving, ambient temperature-controlled smart fan runs only when the CalDigit VR2 needs it. It runs quiet yet ensures proper airflow and advanced cooling without compromise. In addition, the CalDigit VR2 is designed with an all-aluminum enclosure to assist with heat dissipation.
The CalDigit VR2 includes a security lock as well as locking drive modules. This prevents anyone from accidentally removing the VR2's drive modules and adds extra piece-of-mind.
Visual Aid
The easy-to-read backlit LCD provides valuable data with just a glance. It also allows configuration without having to be attached to a computer. Additionally, the LED status lights provide a visual representation of the CalDigit VR2's operation.
