Designed with the ability to edit and playback multiple HD video streams, as well as access digital libraries the StudioRAID TB 16TB 2-Bay Thunderbolt 2 RAID Array (2 x 8TB) from Glyph Technologies is a production-grade external hardware controlled RAID array that connects to your Windows or Mac system using its its two Thunderbolt 2 ports or one USB 3.0 Type-B port at speeds up to 360 MB/s. While one of the Thunderbolt 2 ports is used to connect this RAID to your host system, the other may be used for daisy-chaining additional Thunderbolt-compatible peripherals.
The StudioRAID TB is equipped with two 3.5" drive bays and a total capacity of 16TB, which is configured as 2 x 8TB 7200 rpm hard drives. To help facilitate its functionality within a production environment, the StudioRAID comes pre-configured as a RAID 0, which helps enhance performance by spreading data across two drives and is also compatible with RAID 1, which offers data redundancy. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD and SPAN modes are also supported. This array is powered by an internal international auto-switching power supply that operates at 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz, is cooled with an intelligent quiet fan, uses disk health monitoring, and is constructed from an all-metal enclosure. While the StudioRAID TB comes pre-formatted as HFS+ Journaled for Mac, it may also be used with Windows after a simple reformat. Included is a Thunderbolt 2 cable, USB 3.0 cable, and an IEC power cable. It is protected by hardware, data recovery, and advanced replacement warranties.
