It offers up to 1TB (1000GB) capacity in a sleek and compact storage appliance. The host interface is eSATA II and the disk interface supports 2 x SATA II disk drives.
ENHANCED DATA PROTECTION
Choose the storage policy that matches your needs - Fast (RAID 0), Safe (RAID 1), Big (concatenation) or JBOD (independent disks). When configured in Safe, Fast, or Big modes, its processor maps its physical hard disk drives to virtual drives, which are visible to the host computer. The operating system treats each virtual drive as if it were a single physical drive, allowing software to overcome restrictions imposed by physical hard disk drives. In a basic JBOD configuration, it supports individual mapping of drives to volumes (logical instead of virtual).
