Kano Technologies has introduced SureVAULT desktop RAID storage systems that are compatible with Macs.
The SureVAULT RAID Desktop Mirrored Solution writes data simultaneously to two drives, creating and maintaining a constant mirror-image of all data. The SureVAULT RAID 5 Desktop Solution stripes data to three drives simultaneously.
In case of drive failure, the products automatically switch operations to a remaining drive and offer both a visual and audible alert, so you’ll know what’s going one. Then, without shutting down the desktop, you can slide in a replacement Kano SureDRIVE, if you wish. SureVAULT automatically rebuilds the data while you continue to use your system.
All Kano products sport industrial enclosures with high-volume, low-noise fan ventilation; they’re 4.75 inches high, 9.5-inches wide, 12.75-inches deep,and weigh 14.5 pounds. SureVAULT RAID systems are available in storage capacities that range from 80GB to 600GB. Manufacturers suggested retail pricing starts at US$795 for a SureVAULT RAID Desktop Mirrored Solution, and $1,345 for a SureVAULT RAID 5 Desktop Solution.
