News: Discontinued Dec 31, 2007
This product is discontinued. Accessories for the RAIDTech, such as extra trays, are still orderable (below)
RAID doesn't have to be complicated
RAIDTech 800 is a hardware-based RAID that comes with two lockable drive trays, each holding either IDE or SATA drives. The latch design
gives you instant access to your drives from the front, making it easy to load, reload or replace hard disks at any time. The LCD
on the front panel displays RAID information and the status of both drives. With the flip of a switch, RAIDTech's two drives will
either stripe or mirror.
RAID 0 (stripe) -Biggest volume, both drives act as one large volume
RAID 1 (mirror) -Most secure; all data is copied from one drive to the other on-the-fly
On-the-fly data protection
Backing up your important data is essential, but can be a headache. Let RAIDTech backup for you! RAID 1 makes this as painless
as possible. Simply set RAIDTech to RAID 1 and the data is copied from one drive to the other while you continue to work - even
if RAIDTech is your boot volume.
Buy more RAIDTech trays with drives and carry RAID 1 backups offsite for increased data protection. At night, let
RAIDTech copy to a spare drive and continue to use RAIDTech like a normal volume.
Fast, data transfer and maximum compatibility
You'll get zippy transfer rates of up to 800Mbps to and from your computer with the FireWire 800 ports. If you don't have a
FireWire 800 port on your computer, RAIDTech will work seamlessly with FireWire 400 (400 Mbps) or USB2. It's also plug and
play with recent operating systems without installing new drivers.
Plug and Play
RAIDTech works right out of the box with no new drivers needed. It works with any modern operating system
including Mac OS 9.1, 9.2, OS X and Windows 2K, XP, as well as any distribution of Linux that supports
FireWire or USB. If using FireWire, additional FireWire devices can be daisy-chained through RAIDTech.

Your computer will see RAIDTech as a normal, single volume.
Change drives out without drive damage (Caution: this should not be done while data is being transferred).
