G-Tech RAID storage debuts

G-Technology today unveiled its new G-Speed S storage solutions featuring SCSI Ultra320 connectivity as well as RAID 6 technology, and its G-RAID mini portable RAID storage solutions with a triple interface as well as the latest generation 2.5-inch SATAii hard drives. The G-Speed S (shown at right) is designed specifically for professional content creation applications with support for multi-stream SD and 10-bit 1080/60i HD workflows. G-Speed S offers storage capacities up to 4.5TB using SATA II drives, and boasts sustained data transfer rates of up to 250MB/sec. G-RAID mini features support for multi-stream, DV, HDV, DVCPRO HD, and uncompressed workflows, offering FireWire 400, FireWire 800, and USB 2.0 connectivity. Both the G-Speed S (from $3,000) and G-RAID mini (from $500) are slated for shipment in October. [updated]

G-Tech's G-Speed S system supports RAID levels 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, and JBOD (just a bunch of disks). Browser-based RAID configuration/management tools come built-in via an Ethernet port, and the device can send out email notifications when an error occurs. The unit features hot-swappable disk drive modules, supports a redundant power supply option, and ships with a three-year warranty.

The G-RAID mini supports storage capacities up to 320GB in an enclosure measuring 5.875 x 3.25 x 1.5-inches, weighting just 1.15 pounds. AN integrated heat sink and cooling fan prolong life as well as reliable operation, according to G-Tech, and the device is FireWire bus-powered, requiring no AC adapter for power. The G-RAID mini ships with a two-year warranty.
