Hardware RAID that works seamlessly between Macs and PCs

 

A software RAID storage system is unable to overcome the problems associated with cross-platform usage. It is only through hardware RAID controller chipsets that users can use these hard drives concurrently in Mac or Windows computers. With the ST2's built-in SATA 6G hardware RAID controller chipset, not only does it promise high transmission speed, it also eliminates the cross-platform usage issues associated with RAID 0 or RAID 1 setups. Also, with hardware RAID, all data is computed and processed by the built-in CPU. With such advantages, your computer performance can be focused on running the software and work, instead of handling the storage device's transmission issues.

The ST2 is equipped with three configuration modes to suit every need

 

The ST2 has three built-in disk configuration modes: RAID 1 (Safe Mode), RAID 0 (Speed Mode), and JBOD (Two Independent Volumes) for you to choose according to your needs.

 

 

The RAID 1 function provides fully automatic backup that ensures data security 

 

The ST2's built-in RAID 1 function controls every record that enters the system, and automatically backs it up into two copies in real-time mode, storing them into the two built-in hard disks separately. The two identical copies of data protect against data corruption, so that the data is available even if one of the hard disks is damaged, thus attaining 100% data security.

 

 

RAID 0 functionality increases storage speed and performance 

 

The new ST2 is equipped with a RAID 0 storage mode, which means users can attain up to 330MB/s read speed with the ST2's USB3.0 transmission interface. Whether it is used for search and editing photo galleries, or for video editing and synthesis, it promises smooth and easy operation.

 

Removable design, use multiple harddrives flexibly


ST2 is designed with removable hard drive trays. The combination of the plug-and-play convenience of external casing with the tray's internal stability advantages offers you easy removal and installation while on the move. Both silver and black removable trays have the same structural design, thus both are compatible with all STARDOM 3.5" hard drive enclosures.

 

Use a unibody aluminum casing to protect your important data 


Designed with sturdy, thick aluminum, the ST2 can withstand greater impact than the average product with aluminum casing, shielding your hard drive from the impact of various usage conditions. The compact aluminum casing is fitted with a large, low-noise fan to keep your hard drive from failing and eliminate the internal heat of the RAID system. 


 

Provides up to 16TB of large storage capacity for your creations


ST2 is compatible with all brands of 8TB SATA hard drives. Install two 8TB hard drives under RAID 0 mode and the system will provide 16TB of access. Independent JBOD mode can offer independent storage areas even if the hard drives are of different capacities.
