Medea Launches New RAID
VideoRaid available in two-drive, 120 GB array
Medea has launched a new version of its VideoRaid SCSI disk array. Targeted for the non-linear editing and DVD authoring markets, the new model is available in a two-disk configuration with a capacity of 120 GB. (The model line is available in capacities up to 200 GB.) Medea, as you might recall, merged with Storage Concepts with summer. Both companies manufacture disk storage subsystems and continue to market their products under their original brand names.
The new two-drive VideoRaid scsi product line now includes 80 GB, 120 GB, 160 GB and 200 GB models that sustain a minimum data transfer rate of 30 MB per second. The arrays are compatible with an SCSI-equipped computer. The onboard RAID controller eliminates the need for disk striping software or configuring drive stripe sets. VideoRaid SCSI modules can be daisy-chained together for storage capacities of up to 3 Terabytes on a single SCSI host adapter. Because it has an onboard controller, it can be swapped between computers without losing striping information.
The new 120 GB model sells for $999. The 80 GB, 160 GB and 200 GB models sell for $899, $1,299 and $1,499, respectively. For more information, visit http://www.medea.com.
