WiebeTech RTX storage

WiebeTech today announced new additions to its RTX TrayFree storage enclosures, with new units offering up to eight drive bays. The company's RTX "TrayFree" technology allows users to insert bare 3.5-inch SATA hard drives without trays or screws. The company's RTX JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) enclosures are designed to act like floppy drives, enabling users to easily swap drives in and out at need. RAID units allow users to swap out an entire volume set in less than 60 seconds, according to WiebeTech, and iSCSI (SCSI over IP) combine SCSI protocols with an Ethernet connection to access drives at up to Gigabit speeds for transfer speeds of up to 100MB/sec. WiebeTech's RTX400 FireWire/JBOD enclosure ($1,100) features eight FireWire 800 ports -- two for each bay -- and four USB ports. The RTX600 iSCSI RAID system ($2,850) includes six bays with shock protection and supports RAID levels 0, 1+0, 3, 5, 6, and JBOD configurations.
