WiebeTech Announces RT5 FireWire RAID enclosure

Up to 2 Terabytes in one transportable FireWire enclosure (September 15, 2004)

WiebeTech announces RT5 FireWire enclosure, which features up to 2TB of transportable storage accessible through FireWire 800 (400 compatible) or USB2.

RT5 is a very high capacity storage device and is also plug and play under all recent operating systems. RT5 has a robust feature list, providing many benefits to users:

? Five front accessible drive bays with trays (included)
? Dual FireWire 800 (400 compatible) or single USB2 ports
? User configurable from the front panel as RAID 0, 0+1, 1, 3 or 5, providing greater configuration flexibility.
? When configured as RAID 0, it allows maximum capacity, as all five drives are striped into one logical volume.
? RAID 5 provides data redundancy, allowing a failed drive to be hot swapped and rebuilt while the unit is in operation.
? Available in a user configurable version or in preconfigured versions up to 2 Terabytes.
? Top plate of unit features a recessed, flush-fit heavy duty handle, allowing field transport.
? Plug and play under Windows 2K and XP, Mac OS X and Linux.
? Heavy duty aluminum and steel construction, designed for demanding environments.

"RT5 represents the highest capacity product we have ever shipped," said James Wiebe, CEO of WiebeTech. "It provides storage for massive amounts of data in a redundant array (when configured as RAID 5) and continues WiebeTech's tradition of offering tough, durable products."

RT5 is available for immediate delivery, with prices starting at $1699.95.
