WiebeTech on Wednesday introduced its ProSATA SS8, a portable UltraSCSI RAID system with capacity for eight Serial ATA (SATA) hard disk drive mechanisms. The ProSATA SS8 is available starting at $2,699.95 and ships today.
The ProSATA SS8 features eight hard disk drive trays that are lockable and hot-swappable. The system has handles on its top for easy portability, and is made of aluminum. Each drive tray features drive failure and drive access LEDs, as well.
Using today’s drives you can cram up to 6 terabytes (TB) of data in the system. It features a built-in RAID controller that supports all RAID types, and an UltraSCSI 320 interface that can transfer data at more than 250MB/sec.
The ProSATA SS8’s $2,699.95 configuration is a “0GB” configuration — you can install your own disks. WiebeTech also sells 2000GB, 4000GB and 6000GB versions for $3,763.95, $5,387.95 and $8,019.95 respectively.
