eSATA, USB RAID storage

Fantom Drives today unveiled its new G-Force MegaDisk eSATA+USB external storage system with multiple RAID options. Fantom's external storage system includes NTI Shadow Backup for real-time continuous backup, and supports 300MB/sec transfers via eSATA or 60MB/sec via USB 2.0. user configurable RAID modes include RAID 0 (disk striping) for maximum speed, RAID 1 (disk mirroring) for maximum fault tolerance, JBOD (just a bunch of disks -- direct mapping) for maximum flexibility, or Spanning for simple large volume support at bus speeds as high as 300MB/sec. Boasting dual interface connectivity, the new system is avaiable in 1TB, 1.5TB, and 2TB capacities for $320, $460, and $650 respectively.

The G-Force MegaDisk eSATA+USB comes with RAID software already installed, and is enclosed in an aluminum enclosure designed to dissipate heat. The enclosure features one eSATA port and one USB 2.0 port, supporting older systems limited to USB 1.1. A 32MB data buffer cache enables high performance data transfer between the MegaDisk eSATA+USB 2.0 drive and connected Macs or PCs, reducing delays in writing or reading data while allowing virtually uninterrupted transfers, according to Fantom Drives.
