SmartDisk Personal Storage Systems, formerly VST Technologies, has started shipping its 120 GB VST FireWire-based RAID array for FireWire-equipped Macintosh computers. The VST FireWire RAID array is a compact, portable tower that supports up to four VST FireWire hard drives, which can be used separately or together for storage and rapid transfer of digital data. The new array is being targeted toward video and audio professionals. It also includes a built-in battery pack for portability and field editing.
The VST FireWire RAID array includes custom hardware and software that allow multiple FireWire hard drives to be used together. This significantly increases rates of data throughput via striping. The array also provides for mirroring. (Mirroring creates an identical copy of the data on two drives in the array so that a single drive failure will not result in loss of important data.)
The VST FireWire RAID array is available now in total storage capacities ranging from 20 GB to 120 GB. Prices range from $1,995.95 to $4,699.95. For more information, visit http://www.vsttech.com.
