Sans Digital unveils 3.5"-sized RAID enclosures

updated 07:10 pm EST, Fri February 15, 2008

Sans Digital IR12TB IS12TB

Sans Digital today unveiled the InstaRAID IR12TB and InstaSTOR IS12TB 2-bay RAID/JBOD systems for 2.5-inch laptop hard drives. The enclosures measure the same as a single 3.5-inch internal drive, allowing for a reduced overall size for a redundant disk system. The InstaRAID IR12TB connects to the system through SATA, and offers built-in RAID capabilities, both for RAID levels 1 and 0, for mirroring or striping, respectively. Sans Digital is selling the InstaRAID IR12TB for $185.

The InstaSTOR IS12TB ($75) conversely offers a JBOD - Just a Bunch of Disks - setup, providing individual access to each drive as a separate entity.

    That seems like a really dumb product. Take 2 relatively expensive/slow/unreliable 2.5" drives and put them together to make a 3.5" drive, all for the low low price of $185 plus the cost of the drives? No thanks.
