The Ultimate Blend of Professional
Performance and Convenience
The high-capacity, high-performance Mercury Elite Pro Qx2 was engineered for performance-intensive applications such as HD-video, digital photography, professional music, graphics and backup. Choose between five different RAID levels for the best combination of speed, capacity and redundancy for your needs.
Four 3.5" Serial ATA (SATA I/II) hard disk drives in a brushed aluminum enclosure with Hardware RAID setting flexibility and up to 300MB/s data transfer speed for high performance data storage and redundancy.
User-Selectable Hardware RAID Settings
The Mercury Elite Pro Qx2 has a front panel selector switch that enables easy configuration of the Hardware RAID settings - NRAID, 0, 1, 5, 10 - for the best combination of speed, capacity and redundancy.
RAID 1, 5, 10 enables you to keep working even if one drive fails!
Combines the capacity of two or more drives of the same size without any RAID data distribution scheme into one logical volume. Will also combine the capacity of varying size drives based on the lowest capacity drive in the set.
RAID 0 (Stripe)
Data is split into blocks over two or more drives at same time for high speed and large capacity. The ideal RAID setting for demanding video production/editing.
RAID 1 (Mirror)
The same data is written to two drives for highest level of data safety and redundancy.
RAID 5 (Stripe with Parity)
Data is Striped (RAID 0) while incorporating redundancy over three or more drives for the best combination for speed, capacity, and redundancy. The Multi-Interface 4 Bay Enterprise Class Performance RAID Solutions are pre-configured as RAID 5.
RAID 10 (1+0)
Data is Striped (RAID 0) over two Mirrored sets (RAID 1) of drives for fast redundancy.
JBOD/Independent drive operation
Each drive can be operated as an individual volume using the Firewire 800/400 or eSATA connections. This feature is not supported when using the USB connection.
