MicroNet: Dual-Drive RAID
MicroNet, the Torrance, Calif.-based maker of the Fantom Drive line of external drives, this week unveiled its new DataDock II, a portable dual-drive hardware RAID storage solution for customers who require RAID storage that can be used anywhere.
The DataDock II has space for two, hot-swappable 3.5-inch SATA removable hard drives, with a total raw capacity of 1 TB, 2 TB or 3 TB.
Customers can configure the drives for RAID 0 for best performance, or RAID 1 for redundancy. They can connect to the DataDock II via eSATA, FireWire 400, FireWire 800 or USB 2.0, with data transfer rates of up to 300 Mbps using eSATA. It is compatible with Apple Time Machine and comes with NTI Shadow backup software.
The aluminum enclosure with a low-noise DC fan measures 9.75 by 5 by 2.5 inches.
The DataDock II is available through Ingram Micro VARs. The list price is $299.
