Norco Technologies 5-Bay Tower eSATA RAID Storage Product Details
NORCO DS-500 external SATA (eSATA) Storage Array RAID Subsystem with built-in Port Multiplier and eSATA host interface, supports both 1.5 Gb/s and 3Gb/s Serial ATA transfer rates.
Connected to a eSATA PCI-X/PCI card, this subsystem gives your more than 10 times the data transfer speed of an average Network-attached storage (NAS) and massive hard drive space capability. It supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 0+1, JBOD functions, providing a protected, easy to manage, cost effective storage solution.
^^ RAID 0, 1, 0+1 and 5 to protect data and ensure accessibility
^^ Self-healing storage with auto-rebuild and hot spare functions
^^ Hard drive temperature monitoring and alarm system
^^ Plug and play; Easy to setup and manage; Host controller included
^^ Operating system independent, supports Windows, Linux, MAC
^^ Hot-swappable drive trays to enable adding hard drive and capacity as needed
^^ Multi-port host adapter to connect and manage multiple external storage arrays
^^ Supports five SATA/SATA II hard drives (not included); Combined capacity up to 5+ TB
^^ Five hot-swappable SATA hard drive trays with special designed power-off and lock mechanism to take offsite as a safe backup
