mLogic mRack DIT overview

  • 1Description

Built with a 1 RU form factor for desktop use, machine rooms, 19" racks, and DIT carts, the mRack DIT from mLogic is a Thunderbolt RAID and LTO 8 tape archiving solution for digital workflows. Camera cards can be transferred to its high-speed RAID for online editing, and then the raw footage and completed projects can be archived to LTO 8 tape media to for long-term safeguarding. Each LTO 8 tape cartridge stores 12TB of data, which is copied at speeds up to 300 MB/s, and has a shelf life of 30 years. LTO 8 also supports the Linear Tape File System (LTFS), which mounts the tape drive in the same way as a disk drive, enabling drag-and-drop functionality to the tape cartridge.

Technically, this array has six 2.5" SATA drive bays, which support hard drives and SSDs up to 9.5mm in height. These six drives can be configured in a variety of hardware-controlled RAID modes, which are driven by a RAID-on-Chip processor and 512MB of DDR3 cache memory. The available RAID modes include RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and 50, each of which provides performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require the benefits of a RAID, JBOD is also available.

mLogic's mRack DIT connects to your compatible Windows or Mac system using its four Thunderbolt 2 ports, which are driven by two independent Thunderbolt buses. This means that the four ports are broken up into two groups of two, each of which is powered by one bus. If both ports on one bus are simultaneously used, they will split the 20 Gb/s bandwidth and each receive 10 Gb/s. Included is XenData Workstation 6 for Windows software, two 3.3' Thunderbolt cables, an LTO 8 tape cartridge, a Fujifilm universal cleaning cartridge, and a power cord. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty, which can be extended to three years.
