The 4110 and 4210 models are rack-mountable; the 4105 is a desktop system. They’re switchable between RAID Level 0 and 3 configurations. Some configurations also support SCSI host adapters.
Ciprico targets the high-performance video editing market with the MediaVault products. Pricing was not immediately available.
