The 2TB Guardian MAXimus mini Hard Drive Array from Newer Technology is a portable array which is powered by a custom Oxford 936DS chipset, allowing the array to be configured as RAID 0 or RAID 1. A RAID 1 array mirrors data on two separate drives for total redundancy. If a drive fails, none of the data will be lost. Simply replace the dead drive with one of identical capacity and the array will rebuild, once again preserving mirrored data integrity. With the RAID-0 striped mode, the Guardian MAXimus mini dedicates its drives to maximum performance, ensuring high speed.
The Guardian MAXimus mini features FireWire 800, USB 2.0 and eSATA ports for flexible connectivity. It is bus-powered and weighs as little as 1.24 lb (0.56kg), offering maximum data protection with minimal gear bag bulk. Furthermore, the Guardian MAXimus mini provides data transfer speeds of up to 300 MBps. It comes pre-installed with Intech SpeedTools Utilities, Prosoft Engineering Data Backup and NovaStor NovaBACKUP utility and backup software.
MAXProtect or MAXPerform - Your Choice
The Guardian MAXimus mini provides maximum plug-and-play "live activity" data backup and protection in a space-saving mini footprint. In the pre-configured MAXProtect mode, it guards against data loss and costly system downtime by writing the same information in real-time to create a mirrored copy of up to 750GB of data. For those seeking faster performance, the Guardian MAXimus mini can be easily switched to MAXPerform mode for up to 1.5TB of high-speed performance storage. The Guardian MAXimus mini thus offers maximum performance, flexibility and reliability for critical data backup.
The Guardian MAXimus mini is ready to go wherever your "mobile office" needs to take you. Bus-powered (no AC adapter required) and weighing as little as 1.24 lb (0.56kg), it offers maximum data protection with minimal gear bag bulk. While ultra compact, the Guardian MAXimus mini comes packed with high-performance features like dual hard drives or solid state drives, data transfer speeds up to 300 MBps and user conveniences like a front panel LCM screen/control interface for drive and system status monitoring.
With the RAID-0 striped mode, the Guardian MAXimus mini dedicates its drives to maximum performance, ensuring high speed. In the RAID-1 mode, you get a "live activity" backup of financial records, medical files, business projects and any critical data that you simply cannot risk losing. You're always protected against data loss as the same information is copied in real-time to two separate drives for a mirrored copy. You're also protected from costly system downtime and data restoring after a single hard drive-equipped system crash. By having a second, mirrored copy, you can keep working and saving until the failed drive is replaced. After replacing the drive, the Guardian MAXimus mini automatically rebuilds the mirror by copying all the data to the new drive.
