Dulce Systems announces the immediate availability of the PRO DQ, a disk storage solution bundle that is the fastest storage solution in its class. Running in the RAID disk redundancy protection modes, an 8TB PRO DQ performs up to 570 MB/s in RAID 3/5 protected mode and even with the latest RAID 6 double disk protection mode the PRO DQ outshines other less protected RAID storage products at a breathtaking rate of 460 MB/s. If all out data rate speed is desired, the PRO DQ breaks the record at 660 MB/s in the RAID 0 performance mode.
Dulce Systems offers the PRO DQ in a range of capacities that are suited to a well balanced price and performance scale. PRO DQ capacity offerings start at 2TB, and incrementally scale up to 8TB. All PRO DQ’s are supplied with eight 7200 RPM SATA II 3GB/s disk drives housed in a stylish dark, shiny, brushed aluminum enclosure that provides temperature and fan management, a PCI-e x8 ultra high performance RAID controller, and a pair of robust Quad Channel SATA II interface cables with clip lock security.
The PRO DQ is compatible with Apple’s Final Cut Studio, Adobe’s Premiere Pro and other popular editors and creation applications, the PRO DQ is specially designed for video editing professionals with guaranteed real-time access for multi-stream un-compressed HD, SD, DVCPRO HD, HDV, DV as well as Apple’s ProRes 422 video resolutions. Unlike other competitive RAID products whose performance degrades in the event of a drive failure, the PRO DQ delivers uninterrupted real-time performance, even during a drive rebuild.
The PRO DQ is loaded with user selectable options, a large selection of RAID levels from simple performance striping in RAID 0, mirroring in RAID 1, efficient redundant disk protection in RAID 3 and 5, double redundant disk RAID 6, JBOD, and all with hot spare options that eliminate the need for user intervention in the event of a disk drive failure.
Additional features include RAID migration, and e-mail event notification.
When additional storage is required, the PRO DQ is also expandable using the Dulce PRO EX Expander Switch option which will be available in the 4th quarter of 2007.
The PRO DQ is available through a network of domestic and international distributors and resellers. Visit Dulce Systems at http://www.dulcesystems.com.
