In stock


The Onnto DataTale RC-M4QJ 4-Bay SMART RAID provides JBOD, RAID 0 (Striping), RAID 1 (Mirroring), Span, Clone, RAID 5, and RAID 1+0. The unit features multiple RAID tasks, making complicated operations possible (including HotSpare and Automatic Rebuild for RAID 1+HotSpare, Clone+HotSpare, and RAID5+HotSpare). With the push of a few buttons, the LCM display will allow RAID configuration and system status monitor . It displays general information on any inserted HDDs, the RAID system itself, and RAID functions. The efficient heat dissipation created the outstanding design — the upright stand of the HDDs maximizes airflow and exhausts heat via vents, combined with the rugged aluminum case and low-dB fans.
The RAID MASTER (GUI) permits professionals and enterprises to centralize and effectively oversee complicated RAID applications. With the RAID MASTER, you can configure multiple RAID tasks, set the alerting feature to report any system problems, and customize storage activities for your RAID System.
