Sans Digital, a leading provider of high performance storage subsystems, is expanding its TowerRAID product line. The new TowerRAID series ranges from two to eight bays, in either eSATA/USB or both interfaces. This storage series offers users a wide range of selections when it comes to choosing the perfect storage solution.
The TR4U(B) and TR8U(B) are 4-bay and 8-bay storage enclosures, featuring JBOD and spanning modes for individual hard drive access. Storage modes could be selected via an easy access dip switch located on the back panel. Both units are environmental friendly with Auto-Power option, where the unit powers on only when the connected computer is on. The TR4M(B), TR5M1, and TR8M(B) are 4-bay, 5-bay, and 8-bay storage enclosures utilizing the latest SATA II port multiplier technology, which allows the connection of multiple SATA drives. TR4M(B) and TR5M1 utilize only one cable to connect up to four and five hard drives respectively.
TR8M(B) utilizes only two cables to connect up to eight hard drives. Using the bundled two ports eSATA PCIe adapter, the user could easily access up to eight hard drives via JBOD mode. This eSATA series also supports RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5, 5+spare, spanning and JBOD using the latest Silicon Image SATARAID utility, providing cost-effective redundancy solutions. On the other hand, the TR2UT-B is a 2-bay RAID enclosure that supports USB 2.0 as well as eSATA connection. It features four different RAID modes (RAID 0, 1 Spanning and JBOD), and is the smallest unit of the series with the most abundant features.
With built-in ventilating protective screen front panel, each unit utilizes cable-less SATA connection design to support multiple hard drives. Hard drives are installed on easy access hard drive trays or trayless racks for simple insertion and removal. Both the 4-bay and 8-bay series are available in black and silver finish. "In addition to their market-leading technology, the appearance of the TowerRAID series stays true to Sans Digital’s contemporary design," stated Grandy Chen, Sans Digital’s President. "The various configurations of the TowerRAID series make it easy to choose a suitable storage product for every storage need."
