IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- NetCom USA, a value leader in
desktop storage solutions, today introduced a low-cost 'hardware based'
RAID 5 storage system that combines the latest eSATA host interface with a
hardware platform that deploys best-of-breed components in a compact
4-drive enclosure to provide up to 3.0 terabytes of storage capacity at
less than $1,200 per terabyte.
The new NR5-4 model series incorporates the latest serial ATA drive
technology -- and comes with hot-swappable SATA drives. The NR5-4 systems
support RAID levels 0, 5 and 10 for high performance and data protection.
They're ideal for workgroups, departments and small businesses that need to
add or consolidate storage and provide high levels of data protection. The
systems include PCI host adapters, matched to a customer's needs, to
connect them to network servers and desktop computers. Their eSATA host
interfaces provide up to 6 times the throughput performance of competing
USB2 or Firewire(R) (IEEE-1394) based systems.
These new data storage systems are supplied with software drivers that
support several operating systems, including Mac OSX(R), Vista(R),
Windows(R) and Linux(R). They also include front mounted LCD's and keypads
for easy setup and status monitoring, 1 meter host cables, and 1 year
comprehensive warranties. Network based remote monitoring, with email
notification, is also included for Window based environments.
The NR5-4 systems are also ideal for adding protected, low-cost,
storage for network servers, digital video editing workstations, digital
photo storage, and high speed backup applications. The unit is only
8.13-inches high and 11.28-inches deep, making it very easy to deploy.
"Getting 3 terabytes of raw storage capacity in a small desktop
platform at an affordable price is an important consideration for many of
our clients," said William Long of Digital Microware, a systems integrator
and storage consulting firm. "Add in NetCom's excellent pricing, and the
NR5-4 systems represent value that is unrivaled in the storage industry."
