CalDigit VR mini released

CalDigit has released the CalDigit VR mini, a compact digital storage unit. The product includes two digital storage drives and a frontside LCD display. The CalDigit VR mini supports both RAID 0 (striping), RAID 1 (mirroring), and JBOD and the device can work fast enough to complement high definition video editing. The product features RAID hardware that provides an independent CPU and cache memory to manage the RAID volume. This process eliminates the strain from the host system's CPU and gives applications full system access.

The CalDigit VR mini features a bus-powered FireWire 400 and FireWire 800 ports as well as an eSATA and USB 2.0 ports. The compact device measures 2 inches tall and 5 inches long, for maximum portability. It also offers an aluminum body to help dissipate heat and removes the common fan that causes the device to be loud.

RAID 1 backs up the device's data, mirroring the information on both drives, protecting data if one drive fails. The device additionally includes software that enables firmware updates, configuration, monitoring and to support email notification.

The CalDigit VR mini is immediately available from the CalDigit online store and from CalDigit resellers. The 1TB model costs $700.
