on Thursday announced the addition of FireWire 800 support to its
RAID backup and storage solution.
The device sports two removable drive trays and hardware-based RAID mirroring. Drive duplication is fully automated. The system is enclosed in an aluminum chassis and sports an LCD display that shows what’s happening on the RAID system. The device ships with a spare hard drive tray so you can keep another mechanism ready to go in the event of a failure.
Miglia makes the MediaBank HS-R available in either FireWire 400 or FireWire 800 configurations. The FireWire 400 system starts at US$429 depending on configuration and capacity; the FireWire 800 system starts at US$449. The FireWire 400 system is compatible with Mac OS X v10.1 or higher or 9.1 or higher; the FireWire 800 system requires Mac OS X v10.2.5 or higher.
