WiebeTech LLC has introduced the
RT5x2 RAID storage system. Incorporating two RT5 RAID systems together in a transportable chassis with handles, the system can accommodate 5 terabytes (TB) of storage capacity. Prices start at US$3,199.95 for a system without drives installed (a complete 5TB system costs $9.399.95).
The RT5x2 features 10 reloadable, lockable drive trays, each capable of holding a standard IDE drive. It features a hardware-based RAID controller and can connect to a Mac or PC using FireWire 800 or 400, USB 2.0 or SATA (if you have an external SATA controller installed).
The RT5x2 uses a password-protected button-driven menu to help users configure RAID settings for the drive, and it features built-in alarms to let you know if a drive has failed. The chassis is made from aluminum and steel — it measures 12.8 x 10.6 x 9 inches.
