SMART 2-Bay Thunderbolt™ RAID System


The Thunderbolt™ technology is the newest, most powerful, and flexible I/O technology ever created for a personal computer today. It can be utilized to many products, but the most popular usage is in storage products. Thunderbolt™ technology offers lighting data transfer speed and daisy chain up to six devices without degrading the speed rates.

The Powerful Storage for Professionals: SMART RS-M2T 2-Bay RAID System
The audio/video editing users or heavy data users will enjoy the speed, flexibility, and simplicity, delivered by DataTale SMART RS-M2T Thunderbolt RAID system.
With speeds up to twelve times faster than FireWire 800, two times faster than USB3.0, DataTale SMART Thunderbolt Series features RAID security, hot-swappable disks, and convenience for Daisy Chain. The onboard LED indicators keep users apprised of the system, connection, fan error and disk status/access.

RAID on Thunderbolt: RAID MASTER
SMART RS-M2T Thunderbolt RAID System permits straightforward hardware RAID mode- JBOD (None RAID), RAID 0 (Striping), RAID 1 (Mirroring) and HyperDuo, which can be set by RAID MASTER. The RAID MASTER, GUI (Graphic User Interface), allows professionals and enterprises to centralize and effectively supervise complicated RAID applications. With the RAID MASTER, one can configure RAID tasks, receive reports on system problems, and customize RAID management for the RAID System!

Fast and Secure Data Backup: HyperDuo Feature
The SMART RS-M2T RAID System also provides a unique RAID mode to utilize both SSDs(solid-state drive) and hard drives(HDD) in the same RAID System. In the HyperDuo feature, near-SSD performance is achieved by using algorithms to automatically migrate hot data to SSDs. Under this feature, the RAID System can turn into a hybrid or external boot-up Unit, which will bring out the best in both hard and solid-state drives. The HyperDuo feature has 2 RAID modes: Safe RAID mode and Capacity RAID mode. The Safe RAID mode provides optimal data protection by mirroring data from the SSD to the hard drive for maximum resiliency. The Capacity RAID mode combines both the SSD and hard drive capacities, but reads the data using SSD performance.
The HyperDuo feature allows one (1) hard drive and one SSD in RS-M2T.

Smartly Position and Utilize the Hard Drive/SSD: SmartGuider2
The patented SmartGuider is a trayless fixing mechanism that equipped auto-limiting segmented screws to prevent hard drive/SSD damages from over-tightening when they are installed, and positions them upright to maximize airflow while exhausting heat via surrounding vents. By combining the SmartGuider together with the robust aluminum casing, vents and low-dB fans, the entire SMART ThunderboltTM RAID Systems becomes a smart yet economical channel for heat dissipation!

The standard RS-M2T packaging contains one SmartGuider for SSD and two SmartGuider for 3.5” HDD. The SSD SmartGuider kit is also available for the DataTale SMART Thunderbolt RAID Systems and can be purchased separately.

Valued offer: SMART RS-M2T with 1M Thunderbolt Cable purchased
By using the Thunderbolt™ technology,one single cable (electrical) can link all the desired devices together! Furthermore, when bus-powered device(s) are connected (after the SMART Thunderbolt RAID Systems), dual-channeled power delivery and bi-directional data transfer are available using the Thunderbolt cable!

The Thunderbolt Cable doesn't come with the standard RS-M2T package. However, when the SMART RS-M2T RAID System and the 1M white Thunderbolt cable are purchased together, it is a better bargain than if purchased separately.
