New Serial ATA Hardware RAID solutions from SIIG

Fremont, CA (PRWEB) September 5, 2006

SIIG, the market leader in I/O connectivity products (including Serial ATA and Ultra ATA Controllers, FireWire, USB, serial/parallel I/O, etc.) is proud to announce the latest additions to their assortment of storage solutions with three new Serial ATA internal RAID drive enclosures.

Common features of all of SIIG’s SATA RAID Bay Enclosures include:

Hardware-based RAID - CPU performance & system bus bandwidth is reed from RAID operations, which is superior to driver-based or software-based RAID

Connects directly to the host computer via standard Serial ATA interface - no add-on card or extra driver needed

Automatically detects drive failure and immediately alerts users via the front panel LED & buzzer

Automatic on-line data rebuilding and on-line bad sector recovery

Java-based GUI (graphical user interface) for remote monitoring of system status (drive health conditions and progress of data rebuilding) and notification (via email)

Hot-swappable hard-disks, Key lock provides security against unauthorized access

Easy to install - installs in two standard 5.25" drive bays

OS-independent, driverless - no driver needed on host side

Available in black & beige (beige - special order)

SIIG’s new line of Serial ATA RAID enclosures include the SATA RAID 1 Bay Enclosure (SIIG part # SC-000061-S1, SRP $ 329.99), the unique and cost-effective SATA RAID 1+Backup Bay Enclosure (SIIG part # SC-000041-S1, SRP $ 369.99), and the SATA RAID 5/0 Bay Enclosure (SIIG part # SC-000081-S1, SRP $ 439.99). Details of each are listed below:

SATA RAID 1 Bay Enclosure

Hardware RAID 1 (mirroring) - Data is written simultaneously to two hard drives, maintaining a constant mirror of data.

RAID operation implemented at block level, and works with all types of data & drive formats.

SATA RAID 1+Backup Bay Enclosure

Unique hardware RAID & backup solution in one single product to provide users with the most comprehensive data protection solution. Save money by combining both into one economical solution.

Hardware RAID 1 (mirroring) - Data is written simultaneously to two hard drives, maintaining a constant mirror of data.

Unique data backup function - configure backup scheduling easily via user friendly GUI to backup daily, weekly, monthly, or instantly with "Backup Now" function.

Backup is a D2D (disk-to-disk) solution, simplifying backup tasks & cost. Hardware based backup is faster, easier to use, and more reliable than tape or software backup, with no performance

RAID operation implemented at block level, and works with all types of data & drive formats.

Functions as a single disk drive (with one hard disk), as RAID 1 (with two disk drives), or RAID 1+Backup (with 3 hard disks).

SATA RAID 5/0 Bay Enclosure

Hardware RAID 5 (striped with parity) & RAID 0 (striping) - Uses proprietary ASIC for on-line processing, data striping and parity calculation, delivering excellent IO performance & efficient operations, such as fast disk rebuilding and on-line data recovery for bad sectors.

Requires no extra CPU computing power or memory bandwidth on the host systems, so the overall performance is largely improved.

Supports RAID 0 & RAID 5, selectable by users according to different application needs.

Fulfills requirements of throughput demanding and data intensive applications, while guarding the system against hard drive failure.

Cost-effective solution & well-suited for high-performance PCs, network attached servers, media servers, & industry automation control systems.
