RAIDON Technologies, manufacturers of RAIDON & STARDOM storage products, announced that the STARDOM SOHORAID SR5 is now shipping.
The SOHORAID SR5 is a five-drive RAID storage system for 3.5” SATA II 3Gb/s hard drives that allows for user configurable RAID configuration, through the LCD interface on the front of the unit. The SOHORAID SR5 provides hardware RAID levels of 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5 and 6 with RAID 6 being the most fault-tolerant, offering protection in the event that 2 drives fail. The SOHORAID SR5 is a cost-effective, standalone storage solution with a built-in, multi-level hardware RAID controller that works independently from other computer peripherals. With high-speed 3G eSATA, FireWire 800 and USB 2.0 connectivity, the SR5 provides convenience and flexibility for editors on the go, the perfect large storage volume companion for Mac Book Pro machines. Expansion is available thanks to the SOHORAID SR5’s 2 FireWire 800 ports which allow multiple units to be daisy-chained. With a compact footprint, the SR5 supplies cooling via a large, quiet, 9cm ball-bearing fan. An internal auto-switching, universal, internal power supply keeps cable clutter to a minimum.
