Rorke Data Launches Low-Cost Desktop RAID for HD PostOffering dual 4GBit Fibre channel host connection and SATA-II drives for 300MB/s data transfer (March 10, 2006)
Video storage specialist Rorke Data, a subsidiary of San Jose-based Bell Microproducts, Inc. (Nasdaq: BELM), as a VAD for storage pioneer Fibrenetix, is set to launch a revolutionary 'affordable' workstation RAID system aimed at the broadcast, video and digital imaging markets. The Rorke Data Qubex series of high-speed desktop RAID for video features a compact 6-drive enclosure, high-performance 4GBit Fibre Channel or Ultra320 SCSI host connections; and delivers up to 3 TB of SATA-II RAID storage at a list price under $2.50 USD per GB.
Offering dual 4GBit Fibre channel host connection and SATA-II drives for 300MB/s data transfer -- more than sufficient to edit High Definition uncompressed video streams, the compact, stylish Rorke Data Qubex measures just 12 inches (30cm) wide and operates with low noise to deliver outstanding storage capacity of up to 3 Terabytes. The 6-bay unit features hot swap hard disks and guarantees no loss of data in the event of a disk drive failure.
The new unit can be configured using the onboard Ethernet connection, allowing remote configuration and monitoring via the Internet. To solve the problem of noise irritation in the A/V market the Rorke Data Qubex has redundant external power supplies, so there is no longer an internal power source generating heat and causing noise, making it the perfect solution for any desktop in ambient-noise sensitive environments.
Rorke Data resellers will sell the product through out North America, and be authorized to provide a range service and support options as well.
