When it comes to raw power there is nothing that beats the Quad Bay 4500 MGB Raid. The 4500 MGB-Raid is built strong and rugged, offering more than enough capacity to store all your digital media files. Not only that, the 4500 MGB-Raid can also back up and secure all of your data thanks to RAID protection. Great performance, great protection and great looks C only in the 4500MGB-Raid. Maximize your storage capacity with four 3.5" SATA hard drives with the 4500MGB Quad Bay Raid 4-Bay SATA Enclosure. An ultra durable aluminium casing provides efficient heat dissipation, plus an extra large powerful rear fan keeps your hard drives cool during long hours of operation. Advanced RAID technology provides extra protection for all your valuable data content. The 4500MGB Quad Bay Raid will surpass all your high performance storage needs.

Massive Hard Drive Storage
The 4500MGB Quad Bay Raid is designed to house up to four 3.5" SATA hard drives with the option to setup your drives with different RAID configurations. Use it as a reliable backup for your important data with RAID 1/10, for optimal performance and speed with RAID 0, or simply combine multiple drives in one location to create one large volume with JBOD. The 4500MGB Quad Bay Raid comes with a removable hot swap rack, making installing and replacing the hard drives quick and easy.

Versatile FireWire and USB Interface
The 4500MGB Quad Bay Raid comes with a choice of three different interfaces. FireWire 800 where maximizing transfer speed is most important and the more common FireWire 400 or USB 2.0 High Speed connections for flexibility to access your data on workstations that do not offer FireWire 800. To keep your drives cool, the 4500MGB Quad Bay Raid uses smart fan technology. It automatically regulates fan speed according to the internal temperature. This function plus the rubber padded feet not only optimizes cooling but also reduces the noise level.

RAID Mode:
 

BIG
1-4 Hard Drives
JBOD (spanning)
The drives show up as one large single volume. Spanning is an array (not RAID) that is written sequentially across the drives. By itself, it does not provide any performance or redundancy benefits. Use this if you have installed 1-4 hard drives with different capacities.
FAST *
4 Hard Drives
RAID 0 (striping+striping)
The drives show up as one large single volume. This mode requires 4 identical drives to implement. Used where speed is the primary objective, RAID Level 0 (also called striping) is not redundant. This form of array splits each piece of data across the drives in segments; since data is written without any form of parity data-checking, it allows for the fastest data transfer of all other modes. However, if one drive becomes damaged, the whole array can become corrupted.
SAFE *
2 or 4 Hard Drives
RAID 1 (mirroring)
The drives show up as two volumes, each representing one set. This mode requires 1 or 2 sets of 2 identical drives to implement. RAID 1 creates an exact copy (or mirror) of a set of data on the second drive. This is useful when reliability and backup are more important than data capacity. The available capacity to the user will be 50% of the total capacity for each set but when one hard drive fails, it can be replaced and the data rebuilt automatically.
SAFE II *
4 Hard Drives
RAID 10 (mirroring+striping)
The drives show up as one single volume. This mode requires 4 identical drives to implement. RAID 1 creates an exact copy (or mirror) of a set of data. This is useful when reliability and backup are more important than data capacity. The available capacity to the user will only be as large as 50% of the total capacity of all drives combined but when one hard drive fails, it can be replaced and the data rebuilt automatically.

Remarks: * For the FAST and SAFE mode, hard drives of identical capacities are recommended! If the capacity is different, the total amount of the space that can be used will depend on the drive with the smallest capacity.
