10 REMOVABLE 500GB PATA DRIVES RACKMOUNT Product Details
The rack mountable MediaVault U320-RX features a dual channel Ultra 320 interface capable of sustaining over 200 MB/sec - per channel - in HDT mode. That's more than enough to support 10-bit HD capture and playback. The redesigned, industrial looking chassis supports 10 removable drives. The ultimate in high-speed video storage, the MediaVault U320-RX is available in capacities from 1.6 TB up to 4 TB. Multiple fans and two removable 300 watt power supplies provide cooling and serious power to spare.The MediaVault U320-RX is populated with 10 removable disk drives and can be configured for RAID 0 (performance) or RAID 3 (protected) operation. In RAID 0 mode all drives are used for storage and maximum performance. When in RAID 3 mode, one drive per channel is used for "parity" information, so performance and capacities are diminished about 20%. In RAID 3 mode if a drive fails your footage will still be there - and you can continue working with no degradation in performance. Simply replace the failed drive when convenient and the unit will reconstruct the parity data.The MediaVault U320-RX is true Plug-and-Play. The next-generation on-board programmable RAID controllers takes care of formatting, striping and all RAID functions - while appearing as two single HUGE disk drives to the operating system. The controller also provides built in diagnostics to monitor drive performance and health.
