Trans Intl. Announces SwiftData 200 For Mac G5Add three more drives for a terabyte or more of internal storage (June 16, 2004)
Trans Intl. today announced the worldwide availability of its SwiftData 200, a terabyte or more of internal SATA storage for the Macintosh G5 computer. Finally, it's now possible to add three more drives beyond the G5's two-drive design limitation without altering or replacing any of the original components of the computer.
SwiftData 200 can be configured as a Type 0 RAID for archival backup and security, a Type 1 RAID for blinding speed (more than fast enough to capture 10 bit uncompressed video from your non-linear editing system), or as individual drives where large storage space is required, but the demand for speed is lessened.
The SwiftData 200 can be tailored to your needs by installing one or more drives at a time. As you require additional storage capacity and speed, you can add up to the maximum three drives plus two drives in the G5's SATA internal drive bay giving you a total of five internal SATA drives that can be raided in the configuration of your choice. In order to accomplish this, you will need two free PCI slots, which will house two SATA PCI cards to control the additional drives.
This system is running effectively as a Type 1 RAID at the Broadcast Facility of New York University under working conditions and has proven itself effective and durable. Under the direction of Gary Cooper, Master Teacher and Coordinator of Post-production of N.Y.U. School of Continuing and Professional Studies, the SwiftData 200 is working flawlessly in a 2.0Ghz G5 Macintosh. Installation was simple and easy following the provided instructions. And all of this for a price that's just a fraction of the cost of an external SCSI RAID with far, far less storage capacity. Trans International's SwiftData 200 SATA Internal Raid -- taking the Macintosh G5 to a new level of excellence.
