OWC debuts Quad Interface

OWC has announced its latest Mercury Rack Pro Quad-Interface four-bay Rack Mount Hardware RAID at Macworld Expo (booth S-2218). Designed for audio/video production and data/network operation centers, the quad interface RAID storage server supports up to four 2TB 3.5-inch SATA I/II hard disk drives providing a maximum of 8TB total storage and works with FireWire 800/400, USB2, and eSATA. Simple configuration of the hardware RAID settings is possible through the rear panel selector switch, enabling either mirror or stripe RAID functions without using software.

Users can check the LED indicators to show system status and drive activity. An Enterprise Edition of the Mercury Rack Pro Quad Interface is also available for the more demanding requirements of 24/7 server environments.

Compatible with Mac OS 8.6/9.2.2, Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later (as well as Windows 98SE and up), the Mercury Rack Pro Quad Interface comes in six pre-configured storage capacities from 2TB to 6TB and starts at $900.
