FireWire Direct Ships FireWire Hardware RAIDsNew systems independent of CPU
The new RAID lineup, called the Vanguard series, offers three two-drive models, ranging from 160 GB to 240 GB in capacity. They support RAID level 1 and NRAID and will work with Macintosh, Windows, Solaris and other systems that support FireWire.
The Vanguard models use a metal casing and have a locking door drive bay, cooling fans and a suspended design hard drive tray that minimizes hard disk vibration. It's hot-swappable and, in the event of a hard disk failure, will allow full access to one volume while rebuilding the RAID 1 mirror.
The Vanguard 160 GB model is available for $975.95. The 200 GB model is available for $1,275.95. And the 240 GB model is available for $1,475.95. For more information, visit http://www.firewiredirect.com.
