New RAIDBank5 offers speed, capacity, and reliability for SMB users who need to store mission critical data at an affordable price.

MicroNet Technology, a provider of storage solutions for SMBs, today unveiled the RAIDBank5, a storage solution that combines a 10TB capacity with the performance and data reliability of RAID 5 and the speed of USB 3.0 connectivity.

The RAIDBank5 is a super speed, low cost RAID solution for storage-intensive digital media applications. MicroNet designed the RAIDBank5 for maximum performance with a hardware RAID architecture that delivers more than 200 MB/sec. and quad interface connectivity with the industry’s fastest external storage interfaces, including FireWire 400 and 800, 300 MB/s eSATA and the new USB 3.0 at 500 MB/s.

When configured for RAID 5 operations, the RAIDBank5 delivers read and write speeds of 218 MB/s and 220 MB/s respectively. The RAIDBank5 is equipped with the highest-speed connections to take full advantage of the internal RAID architecture, particularly with the ultra-high speed of eSATA and USB 3.0 connections.

The performance-optimized architecture of the RAIDBank5 makes it ideal for storage-centric needs of professional digital audio applications and digital video production environments with support for multi-stream high definition video, DVCPRO for broadcasting use, Apple’s ProRes 422 for post production on Final Cut Studio, as well as uncompressed standard definition and high definition video workflow.
The RAIDBank5 uniquely combines the performance and capacity of higher-end storage systems with the simplicity demanded by SMB customers who typically lack dedicated IT staffs. Easy one-button backup provides automatic protection of multiple terabytes of critical data while data security is assured with a simple USB plug-in encryption key that provides AES-256 encryption, approved by the U.S. Government to protect top secret data.  RAID levels 0, 1, 10, 3 and 5 are supported with simple plug-and-play RAID configuration enabled via a graphical user interface or with a rotary switch on the unit. 
MicroNet has further addressed the requirements of SMBs with hot-swappable disk drive and fan modules for real-time, on-site replacement for continuous data protection.  Drive modules can be swapped out while the RAIDBank5 continues to operate with no data loss or interruption of data availability. The noise-free fan module with SMART thermal sensor is also user-replaceable without any downtime, eliminating the need for costly maintenance contracts or on-site service calls.

Pricing and Availability

MicroNet’s RAIDBank5 is available immediately with pricing ranging from $799 for a 2.5TB model to $1,799 for the 10TB configuration.
