FirewireDirect Boosts Hard Drive Capacity

Single-drive, RAID models use mechanisms up to 320 GB By Dave Nagel
FirewireDirect today announced new models in its lines of external FireWire hard drive and SCSI RAID systems. FirewireDirect targets its systems to video and audio editing applications. The new models are expected to be released later today.

According to the company, every line has been updated with new, higher-capacity drives. This includes the Ultra III desktop FireWire hard drive line, which is now available in capacities of 180 GB, 200 GB, 250 GB and 320 GB, high enough for about 24 hours of DV footage.


FirewireDirect has also boosted the capacities of its Ultra160 SCSI RAID systems in its Vanguard Ultra Elite line. The Ultra Elite 12 now offers nearly 4 TB in a single enclosure, up from the previous 3 TB available.

As of press time, FirewireDirect had not posted pricing details on the new models on its Web site, but these details should be available later today. For more information, visit http://www.firewiredirect.com.
