SMART 2-Bay FireWire RAID System


The DataTale SMART 2-Bay RAID System is customized with an intelligible GUI (RAID MASTER) for personalized RAID settings, which eliminates the need of traditional RAID flip-switches and allows managing RAID tasks with ease! There is a set of colorful LED indicators for immediate system status, and quad interface ports for accommodating a variety of connection configurations. By providing an intuitive GUI called RAID MASTER, along with LED indicators and SmartGuider* feature, the DataTale SMART 2-Bay RAID System is designed to be SMART!

User Friendly GUI
With the user-friendly RAID MASTER application, anyone can arrange desired RAID tasks or become alerted of potential system problems. The DataTale SMART allows straightforward RAID mode-setting including: JBOD (None RAID), RAID 0 (Striping), RAID 1 (Mirroring), and SPAN(Large)! Based on preference, any two 3.5-inch SATA hard drives can be combined as a single volume using SPAN/RAID1/RAID0 modes, or be kept separated as 2 volumes under JBOD mode. Either way, storage capacities wouldn't be wasted and/or RAID data storage protection could be applied for backups!

Flexible & Easy-to-use Design

The SmartGuider* design makes hard drive installation, removal and insertion an absolute breeze! Also, the unique auto-limiting segmented screws prevent the hard drive from damages due to over-tightening during installation.

Excellent Yet Silent Heat Dissipation
The upright yet vertical placement of hard drives within the aluminum case maximizes internal airflow and creates excellent heat dissipation! Furthermore, the low-dB fan makes the DataTale SMART a pleasant company to have!

2TB+ Support Ready & Fast Speeds
Lastly, the DataTale SMART can support more than 2TB of hard drive storage capacity and tops most consumers' expectations with its high-speed performance in data transfer!
