WiebeTech's new RAIDs

WiebeTech has introduced two new models in its SilverSATA Series for a total of eight SATA 1/2 drives models with interchangeable trays. The company added new four-bay and five-bay models in addition to the single- and dual-bay options; each are available with various connectivity options, including eSATA, FireWire, USB or SCSI interfaces. In addition WiebeTech is introducing an eSATA PCI-X host adapter, with four eSATA ports, that supports SilverSATA models with an eSATA interface. The SilverSATA IV FH features dual-independent hardware RAID support with two pairs of dual FireWire 800 (400 compatible) ports. Each pair of drives can be independently configured as JBOD or hardware RAID 0. The new 4-tray version holds up to 3TB of storage.

The SilverSATA V UR 5-bay enclosure has a fast-SCSI Ultra320 connection and includes a state-of-the-art RAID controller, allowing for large (3.75TB+) volumes and RAID level 0, 1+0, 3 and RAID 5 or 6. RAID 0 speeds can exceed a blazing 250 MB/s. The new WiebeTech TeraCard 4-port eSATA PCI-X host adapter has four eSATA ports, each with an independent Serial ATA channel; it features port mulitplier support, so it works with any SilverSATA product with an eSATA interface, including SilverSATA V SJ.

The SilverSATA IV FH is available in several configurations: the enclosure itself (without any drives) is $550, while the 4x250GB (8MB cache) model is $1080; the 4x500GB (16MB cache) is $,1900, and the 4x750 (16MB) is $3,200. The SilverSATA V UR is available as an enclosure-only for $2,200; 5x250GB (8MB) for $2,865; 5x500GB (16MB) for $3,880; and the 4x750GB (16MB) is $5,525.
