DataTale SMART 4-Bay Thunderbolt™ RAID Enclosure
In stock


The DataTale RS-M4T/C 4-Bay Thunderbolt™ RAID provides JBOD (non-RAID), RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10, and HyperDuo in combination with Thunderbolt technology for the most powerful and flexible RAID solution on the market today. The outstanding design creates efficient heat dissipation — the upright stand of the HDDs maximizes airflow and exhausts heat via vents; combined with the rugged aluminum case and low-dB fans.

Professional RAID Solution
Professional users will appreciate the speed, flexibility and simplicity delivered by the DataTale SMART RS-M4T Thunderbolt™ RAID system. With speeds up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and twice as fast as USB3.0, the unit features RAID security, hot-swappable disks, and two Thunderbolt ports for convenience when daisy-chaining with other Thunderbolt devices. The onboard LED indicators keep users apprised of the system, connection, fan error and disk status/access.

The patented SmartGuider is a trayless fixing mechanism that equips auto-limiting segmented screws to prevent hard drive/SSD damage from over-tightening when they are installed, and positions them upright to maximize airflow while exhausting heat via surrounding vents.

RAID MASTER Application
The RAID MASTER (GUI) allows the user to configure multiple RAID tasks, set the alerting feature to report any system problems, and customize storage activities for your RAID system.

Fast and Secure Data Backup: HyperDuo Feature
The RS-M4T RAID system also provides a unique mode to utilize both SSDs (solid state drives) and hard disk drives (HDDs) in the same system. The HyperDuo feature needs to have at least one HDD with up to three SSDs. With the HyperDuo feature, the RS-M4T RAID system becomes a hybrid unit to bring out the best performance in both hard and solid state drives. The HyperDuo feature is configured via RAID MASTER under two types of RAID modes. The Safe RAID mode provides optimal data protection by mirroring data from the SSD to the hard drive for maximum resiliency. The Capacity mode combines both the SSD and HDD capacities, but reads the data using SSD performance.
