FireWire Depot Introduces the uRAID

High performance, high capacity 19" 1394b 1U rack mount RAID system (December 23, 2004)

FireWire Depot today announces the uRAID 1U 19" 1394b rack mount RAID 0 system using the Oxford 912 chipset.

The uRAID enclosure defines a new level of high performance and high capacity storage in a minimum volume 1U rackmount chassis and is extremely cost effective. Our uRAID offers up to 1.6TeraBytes of data storage in 1U rackmount chassis capable of transfer sustain rates of over 110MB/sec (using dual channel FireWire requires two FireWire 800 PCI cards or a native FireWire 800 port and a FireWire 800 PCI card, and Software RAID). The hyper speed is achieveable because our uRAID has TWO independent 1394b high performance bridgeboards with hardware RAID 0 and 32MB of RAM buffer, each can easily transfer over 70MB/sec.

uRAID features Direct Air (patent pending) technology to ensure hard drive temperatures only above ambient temperature 8oC at max, and this allows uRAID to be operating 24/7 without worry of thermal run-away over-heating and definitely prolongs the hard drive life expectancy.

Featuring two independent RAID 0 bridgeboards, uRAID offers unmatched flexibility; system administrators and users can configure our uRAID as Hardware 0 + Software RAID 0 to get the hyper transfer rate or Hardware 0 + Software RAID 1 to get highest performance and real-time data redundancy.

The uRAID is available in the following configurations:

uRAID-0GB 0GB - 1U with TWO independent RAID 0 - no hard drives included Price: $655.00
