Our modular High-Rely RAIDPac removable drives are the largest available for backup and disaster recovery. Pacs are perfect for jobs that require large capacity, speed, and reliability. Each unit is a three-drive RAID array that can hold up to 24TB of data (RAID 5) and still recover from the loss of a single drive. When configured in RAID 0, RAIDPacs are capable of storing up to 36TB of data. RAIDPacs are completely self-contained, and can be accessed directly through the Pac itself via a USB 3.0, or SATA connection, when necessary.
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.
RAIDPacs are the largest backup media in the world (Now up to 36 TB). They integrate up to 3 SATA hard drives, with a built in hardware RAID, making a completely self-contained removable drive that can be hot-plugged into any RAIDFrame chassis. RAIDPacs may be set for either RAID 0 (striping) operation or RAID 5 (redundant and striped).
In RAID 0 mode, the capacity of all three drives is added together to form a single large volume. If a drive fails, all data will be lost. However, in backup operations doing full nightly backups, some installations prefer the larger capacity and rely on previous night’s backup for redundancy. Any failed drive can be replaced, and the pack reinitialized, for continued backup operations.
In RAID 5 mode, the capacity of the volume will be 2 drives added together. The 3rd drive is used for redundancy. If a drive fails, it can be hot swapped and the volume will automatically rebuild itself. We recommend ordering a spare drive so that any failed drives can be replaced and the array rebuilt as soon as possible.
Field Access. Imagine having a stand-alone 36TB USB drive. Since RAIDPacs are completely self contained, the data can be accessed independently of the RAIDFrame. No driver software is needed because the integrated RAID controller presents to the host as a single drive. Simply use the SATA or USB 3.0 connectors,* and power the unit with a standard Molex power connector available on most PC power supplies.
Monitoring & Management. Software is included, called the HW RAID Manager, that allows you to monitor up to 5 RAIDPacs simultaneously from one host, to see status, control configuration, set automatic notifications, logging of failures, and errors.*
* – RAIDPac G2 feature only. RAIDPac G2 replaces the G1, is compatible with existing RAIDFrame systems. G2’s began shipping in 2011. Some configurations may not allow HW RAID Manager to have full visibility inside the RAIDPac. Ask your sales rep for details.
** Note: Windows XP 32 bit and Windows Server 2003 prior to SP1 support only up to 2TB.
