CalDigit on Monday introduced its VR mini, a compact, bus-powered two-drive RAID system. It’s coming this summer, but pricing was not announced.
The VR mini supports RAID Level 0 and 1, or JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) configurations, which can be set either using a front-mounted display or using interactive software. It’s a quad-interface storage system, working via USB 2.0, FireWire 400, FireWire 800 or external Serial ATA (eSATA). LED status lights also tell you what the VR mini’s operation status is, and an audible alert can also be set.
The VR mini measures 2 inches tall and 5 inches long, and sports an all-aluminum enclosure. Inside are two removable 2.5-inch SATA drive modules. A built-in LCD display shows hard drive status, capacity, RAID level, temperature and serial numbers.
CalDigit’s Web site had not been updated with information on the VR mini as Macworld posted this information, except for a press release.
