CRU-Wiebetech Wiebe Tech Single BayDock 800 - Product Details
This is the FireWire 800 storage system you’ve been waiting for.
WiebeTech announces BayDock 800™, a flexible storage system designed to store and retrieve data the way you’ve
always wanted to. BayDock 800 provides a powerful storage system allowing incredibly high transfer speeds and
many configuration options. BayDock 800 is available with one, two or four drive bays. (BayDock is also available with
FireWire 400 bridges, in one, two or four bay configurations.) Each bay has an individual FireWire 800 bridge, and the
trays are hot swappable. Compatible with every computer you work with.
BayDock’s ATA-6 compatible Oxford OXUF922 FireWire bridges will connect to any FireWire port without drivers.
Continual drive status monitoring.
BayDock ships with InfoTrays, which provide instant health feedback on your drives. At a glance, you will see configuration
information, fan status, temperature of the drive, hours in use and access information. You can set an alarm for
temperature overrun, and you’ll be notified if the fan breaks. (The fans are very quiet. We know how important that is.)
Configured for high performance storage.
BayDock 800 is available in configurations to 1.6 Terabytes. All configurations may be configured as soft RAIDs, and will
provide extremely high performance storage. For example, we tested a dual BayDock 800 with two FireWire 800 bridges
and documented a peak sustained transfer rate of 108 MB/sec on an Apple dual G5, using Apple’s OS X RAID utility.
Each InfoTray is removable, so you can swap drives out for maintenance or just because you have a huge drive collection.
You can purchase all of the extra InfoTrays (or basic trays, which do not have the indicators) that you desire.
It’s a piece of electronic art.
BayDock is constructed mostly from presentation grade anodized aluminum with Black anodized inserts. It’s stackable.
It’s flexible. It’s beautiful. It’s usable.
