Our High-Rely Media houses industry standard 3.5″ SATA hard disk drives in a removable protective aluminum enclosure, making them portable and hot-swappable. The durable connector on the back of the High-Rely Classic Media is designed to withstand being inserted and removed thousands of times (plug and unplug cycles). Contrast this with a bare SATA connector, which is rated for about fifty plug and unplug cycles. The durable aluminum casing can support up to 600lbs, and hard drives inside can be upgraded, or replaced, in minutes. We’ve recently eliminated the front LCD display to reduce costs and increase reliability.
These High-Rely Classic Media are used in several of our backup appliances, as well as with many of the Smart Family products.
The High-Rely Hard Carry Case is our recommended protection for safely transporting precious removable media from site to site. Designed as a shock-absorbing and water-resistant means of protection for your durable backup media, it ensures that your data is further secured from damage, corruption, or loss.
Our bare hard drives are designed for use in the RNAS-U series. While brands may vary depending on availability, in general we will select and test drives that are NAS rated. We partition, format, and test all drives. By buying the drives from us, you will have one point of contact for all warranty claims.
Although designed for 3.5” drives, you can use almost any 2.5” SSD, or rotating media drive, in a High-Rely Classic fully enclosed drive tray. For most 2.5” media, an adapter plate is not needed.
The 2.5” SSD drive is mounted in the right rear of the tray, which leaves plenty of room for cooling and air flow. The drive is secured via one screw through the bottom of the drive tray and threaded directly into the front left of the 2.5” drive, using a standard drive screw. The combination of the machined side (right side) of the aluminum tray, the SATA connector at the back, and the single drive screw holds the 2.5” drive firmly in place.
For customers who have heavy 2.5” drives, or prefer the additional security of a second screw, a $25 sheet metal adapter is also available.
Exposed Drives: Many cheap designs allow the back side of the hard drive to be open, naked and unprotected, which can leave it susceptible to physical and static electricity damage. While the High-Rely media itself maybe destroyed from trauma, but the hard drive inside will be safely protected.
Thin Sheet Metal Designs: Flimsy frames and no intervening back plane offers no additional protection to hard drive(s), leaving it vulnerable to physical damage or static electricity damage. The bare SATA hard drive connectors are rated for as FEW as 50 insertion and removals!
Proprietary Hard Drives: Many manufacturers are now using hard drives customized or secured for only their trays. This raises costs and dramatically reduces your service and performance choices.
