SANcube

At a Glance
  • MicroNet Technology SANcube

Digital video recording requires fast hard disks. One solution is MicroNet's innovative SANcube, a FireWire storage area network whose hefty disk drives -- up to 220GB -- move as fast as 30MB per second. The stylish, stackable enclosure contains hard drives that you configure as one or more RAID 0 (striped) or RAID 1 (mirrored) shared volumes; the SANcube supports any number of shared or dedicated partitions. In RAID 1 operation, the SANcube's driver software alerts you when a drive fails. A built-in hub and supplied FireWire cables let you instantly connect the unit to FireWire-capable Macs.
