MicroNet Unveils Industry`s First Storage System to Combine 10 TB Capacity with RAID 5; USB 3.0 and AES-256 Encryption

New RAIDBank5 Offers Speed, Capacity & Reliability for SMB Professionals with Mission Critical Data at an Affordable Price (October 05, 2010)
DMN Newswire--2010-10-5--MicroNet Technology, a provider of storage solutions that small and medium businesses (SMBs) can rely on, today unveiled the RAIDBank5, an unprecedented storage solution that combines a 10 TB capacity with the performance and data reliability of RAID 5 and the speed of  USB 3.0 connectivity.

The RAIDBank5 is a super speed, low cost RAID solution for storage-intensive digital media applications.   MicroNet designed the RAIDBank5 for maximum performance with a hardware RAID architecture that delivers more than 200 MB/sec. and quad interface connectivity with the industrys fastest external storage interfaces including, FireWire 400 and 800, 300 MB/sec eSATA and the new USB 3.0 at 500 MB/sec.

When configured for RAID 5 operations, the RAIDBank5 delivers read and write speeds of 218 MB/sec and 220 MB/sec. respectively.  The RAIDBank5 is equipped with the highest-speed connections to take full advantage of the internal RAID architecture, particularly with the ultra-high speed of the eSATA and USB 3.0 connections.

The performance-optimized architecture of the RAIDBank5 makes it ideal for storage-centric needs of professional digital audio applications and digital video production environments with support for multi-stream High Definition Video, DVCPro for broadcasting use, Apples Pro-Res 422 for post production on Final Cut Studio, as well as uncompressed Standard Definition and High Definition video workflow.



The RAIDBank5 combines the performance and capacity of higher-end storage systems with the simplicity demanded by SMB customers who typically lack a dedicated IT staff. Easy one-button backup provides automatic protection of multiple terabytes of critical data while data security is assured with a simple USB plug-in encryption key that provides AES-256 encryption, approved by the U.S. government to protect top secret data.  RAID levels 0, 1, 10, 3 and 5 are supported with simple plug-and-play RAID configuration enabled via a graphical user interface or with a rotary switch on the unit.
 
MicroNet has further addressed the requirements of SMBs with hot-swappable disk drives and swappable fan modules for real-time, on-site replacement for continuous data protection.  Drive modules can be swapped out while the RAIDBank5 continues to operate with no data loss or interruption of data availability.  The noise-free fan module with SMART thermal sensor is also user-replaceable without any downtime, eliminating the need for costly maintenance contracts or on-site service calls.

Pricing and availability
MicroNets RAIDBank5 is available immediately with pricing ranging from $799 for a 2.5 TB to $1799 for the 10 TB configuration.
