New RAID enclosures from RAIDON – for 2 and 4 HDDs – with USB 3.0, FireWire 800, eSATA

Islands of Simplicity and Reliability in a Complex World

Ahrensburg, (PresseBox) - Proverbial are the durability and reliability of Raidon products due to solid materials and
thorough manufacturing. Additionally, here come even more simplicity and ease. Connect, switch on, set adjustments, put into operation, forget. That’s how simple it should be. That’s how simple it is with a RAIDON GR3630-WSB3.

(1) Connect
With the Raidon GR3630-WSB3 external data transmission comes in three (!) flavours: USB 3.0, Firewire 800, and eSATA. That’s the most complicated stuff at the beginning.
USB 3.0 is the fastest and most universal connection. With a partner capable of USB 3.0 it is up to 5 GBit/s fast, theoretically. As it is downward compatible it also works together with USB 2.0 plugs, motherboards etc., but only in USB 2.0 speed. FireWire 800 (1394b) is usually the fastest connection to a Mac. Moreover, you can use it to build daisy chains
of several HDDs. eSATA often is a fast connection to NAS devices and PCs.
Make your choice. Put in HDDs. Switch on.

(2) Set adjustments
Formatting. When this is done the drive-icon will appear on the screen. GR3630-WSB3 cooperates with the Windows, Linux and Mac OS. Chose RAID level. RAID 1 is set by default. That means all data are mirrored from HDD A to HDD B. Chose RAID 0 and you have the maximum storage capacity plus faster processing. More features contributing to simplicity. Built-in power supply. Optical and acoustic alert in the case of HDD failure, fan failure or overheating. Auto-rebuild. Hot swappable tray module provides HDD for easy installation.

(3) Forget
That way you can work for months and years. As there also is this really imperturbable reliability of a RAIDON RAID enclosure.

Even as it is not really brand new we shortly have to mention the also new RAIDON RAID enclosure GR5630-WSB3. It follows the same philosophy of simplicity. It is made for four HDDs. RAID 5 is set by default and this is without alternative. All other features are like those of the GR3630-WSB3.

Recommended retail prices, including VAT:
