VST Demonstrates Portable 100GB FireWire RAID Solution for Apple Macintosh


"..VST Technologies today announced a 100GB FireWire based RAID Array designed to work with all FireWire equipped Macintosh computers from Apple Computer. The Company plans to demonstrate their 100GB portable RAID Array at MacWorld San Francisco January 5th at the Moscone Exposition Center, booth #3735 North Hall.

The VST FireRAID Array includes custom hardware and software that allow multiple FireWire Hard Drives to be used together as a high performance RAID array by providing striping, mirroring and HFS volumes, all simultaneously. Like the VST FireWire Hard Drives, the smallest and most compact in the world, FireRAID is designed to be very small and compact . Measuring only 5in Wide x 7in Depth and 9in High, FireRAID is actually portable, and includes built-in Li-Ion battery backup capable of running the array for up to 2 hours in the event of loss of AC power.

Used as an array, multiple drives provide significantly increased bandwidth in the form of Striping (RAID level 0). Striping is a method of streaming data to/from multiple drives simultaneously to achieve higher bandwidth. FireRAID also provides mirroring. Mirroring (RAID level 1) provides an identical, redundant copy of the volumes data on two drives in the array, so that a single drive failure will not result in loss of important data. In addition, FireRAID allows standard HFS volumes to be created. FireRAID has been designed to allow booting from HFS as well as mirrored volumes with future Mac OS updates from Apple.

The VST FireRAID Array tower consists of a very compact enclosure that houses up to four VST FireWire Hard Drives in any size or capacity ranging from 6GB to 25GB each. All VST FireWire Hard Drives may be used with FireRAID Software, and all of VST's ultra-compact series of FireWire Hard Drives may be used in the FireRAID Tower. The tower provides all FireWire connections to each drive, which may be hot-plugged in to any available array slot. In addition, the tower provides uninterruptable power, with built-in Li-Ion battery backup, and may be powered from any AC power source worldwide.

The VST FireRAID Array towers may be connected together to form larger arrays (up to 16 drives are supported). Data throughput is expected to range from 30 to 40MB/Sec (Mega Bytes per Second), depending on the particular mechanisms used.

Pricing and Availability : Multiple configurations up to 100GB will be available in Q1.."
