Other World Computing (OWC) has expanded their Mercury Elite line with new OWC Mercury Elite-AL 800 Pro RAID-1 Mirror FireWire 800/400 Solutions from $399.99.
“The Mercury Elite-AL Pro RAID-1 Mirror Solution provides for high performance data needs while offering the security of a real-time, ‘mirrored’ backup,” said Larry O’Connor, president of OWC, in the press release. “For situations where you just can’t be too careful with mission-critical data, this solution provides the peace of mind you’ve been looking for.”
Taking data safety to the next level, the Mirror RAID design provides a seamless internal backup of all data – literally creating a mirror image of all data. In the unlikely event that the primary drive should fail, the Mercury Elite-AL Pro Mirror will automatically switch to the backup demonstrating no loss of data or production time.
“The Mercury Elite-AL FireWire 800 RAIDs combine a custom Oxford bridge with the most reliable disk mechanisms to provide the ultimate in performance and reliable operation,” said Jen Soule, OWC Sales Manager. “Using drives with a 7200RPM spindle speed and combining to feature up to a 32 Megabyte (MB) data buffer, these solutions deliver the FireWire 800 performance you expect.”
The following Mercury FireWire 800 Pro Mirror RAID solutions are immediately available:
• 250GB x 2 Mirror with 16MB Data Buffer for $399.99
