PRESS RELEASE: RTX™220-QR Enclosure with RAID Offers Huge Storage in Small Footprint
VANCOUVER, WA – August 9, 2010 – Portable storage with RAID has never been more affordable and easier to use with the newly reengineered RTX220-QR HDD enclosure from WiebeTech, a brand of CRU-DataPort. As a direct replacement for the RTX200H-QR, the RTX220-QR provides a fast way to mirror (RAID 1), stripe (RAID 0) or create a quick backup disk. Additional features of the dual TrayFree™ bay enclosure include: an updated RAID controller with a new menu system, a durable handle for portability, quad interfaces (FireWire 400/800, USB 2.0 and eSATA) and a unique companion utility to customize fan and alarm behavior. The user-configurable audible and visual warnings are context-specific with alerts for both system and RAID status. System LEDs indicate power, hardware and RAID status. The RTX220-QR portable storage enclosure is available with base units starting at $499.00 MSRP.
RTX220-QR TrayFree™ technology simplifies hard drive installation by merely inserting the drive into the sled and shutting the door. Drive bays feature all-metal construction, shock-mount protection, and interface connectors rated for 20,000+ drive insertions. Each bay locks for added security and supports hot-swapping to replace failed drives without shutting down the system. The sturdy metal case provides excellent heat dissipation and rugged durability while the 60mm magnetic-levitation chassis fan offers superior yet quiet cooling. This unit operates in single disk mode as well to offer flexibility and scalability.
“RTX220-QR is a brilliant choice for photography and video storage, small businesses server storage as well as federal and forensic professionals,” asserts Dan Bovee, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CRU-DataPort. RTX220-QR may be seen in conjunction with other storage, encryption and digital forensics solutions at HTCIA September 20-22, 2010 in Atlanta, GA, SMB Nation October 22-24, 2010 in Las Vegas, NV, Techno ForensicsOctober 25-26, 2010 in Gaithersburg, MD and PhotoPlus October 28-30, 2010 in New York, NY.
