SMART 4-Bay USB 3.0 RAID System


The DataTale SMART 4-Bay RAID series are the perfect solutions for those requiring a massive storage system with user-friendly operations! The SMART 4-Bay RAID Systems provide powerful storage management under JBOD (None RAID), RAID 0 (Striping), RAID 1 (Mirroring), Span, Clone, RAID 5, and RAID 1+0; plus optional Rebuild setup under RAID 1+HotSpare, Clone+HotSpare, and RAID 5+HotSpare!

The RC-M4SP comes with one USB3.0 connection with USB2.0/USB3.0 technology compatible capability. With just a few push on small buttons, the LCM display allows fundamental RAID operations and system status monitor, including inserted hard drives and the RAID System itself!

The RAID MASTER, GUI (Graphic User Interface), permits professionals to centralize yet effectively supervise complicated RAID applications. With the RAID MASTER, one can configure multiple RAID tasks, receive reports on any system problems, and customize storage management for the RAID System!

The SmartGuider* design makes hard disk installation, removal and insertion as easy as 1-2-3! This feature enables trayless hard drive stance, and effortless hard drive hot-swap whenever necessary! In addition to the low-dB fan, the upright stand of the HDDs maximizes airflow by exhausting hot air using high RPM SATA HDDs. Together with vents and rugged aluminum case, the entire DataTale design features a neat and efficient channel for heat dissipation.
