Tower RAID System - 5 Ports

ArcticrocThe Arcticroc is a highly versatile RAID system that is available in a 4-Bay Tower model with up to 12 Terabytes of disk storage.  The drives have transfer speeds of 3 Gbits/s to and from the host. ARCTICROC is also compatible with both Windows® and Macintosh® Operating Systems.

Streamlines your Data Storage Management!

Speed and massive storage capacity are typically cited as the chief benefits of RAID storage management. Real-time redundant backup of data and fault tolerance make RAID a critical part of any enterprise, regardless of size. Commercial enterprises that fail to employ (or use) RAID or disk mirroring can face large costs in the event of disk failure. Upon careful analysis, potential adopters of RAID technology will discover that the greatest cost of disk failure is the accumulated long term loss of data and subsequently loss of time and money. Designed for professional users and the enterprise sector, the newly released 4-Bay Arcticroc Tower RAID systems helps prevent data loss and streamlines storage management.

ARCTICROC Combo Tower RAID Systems

ArcticrocThe RAID 5 mode provides a fault tolerance feature. It requires a minimum of 3 drives in an array. In case one of the disks fails, the malfunctioning disk can be replaced with a new one. The source data can then be reconstructed back through parity calculation. RAID 0+1 mode stripes the data first and then mirrors the data. It provides another mode to achieve higher performance and data security.

Using this RAID system is as easy and familiar as using a single bay external enclosure. The need for software GUI installation is eliminated. Onboard LED indicators keep you apprised of system, connection, and HDD status while the user-friendly HDD tray design makes HDD hot-swapping effortless from the top end.

Two fans blow air through the hard disk drives to dramatically enhance internal air flow and efficiently cool the high speed SATA hard drives within the system.
