2-Bay 2.5”/3.5" SATA III HDD/SSD Hardware RAID Storage
USB 3.0, e-SATA, Hot-Swappable Drive
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. (RAID storage is used between Mac OS and Windows PC platforms and needs to use the same file format, for example: exFat file format).
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 hard drives 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.
Built-in power supply
ST2 is equipped with a high-efficiency internal power supply that complies with safety standards so that users will always have enough power for different hard drive usage conditions.
Provides more of large storage capacity for your creations
ST2 is compatible with all brands SATA hard drives. Install two hard drives under RAID 0 mode and the system will provide more of access. Independent JBOD mode can offer independent storage areas even if the hard drives are of different capacities.
The unique design of SATA hard drives gives itself removable characteristics; but through STARDOM's removable trays, removing and installing SATA hard drives is more comprehensive and secure. Through secure removable hard drive trays, users can easily move the entire hard drive like moving an entire video library. Users no longer need to rummage through a stack of CDs/DVDs to look for a video. Let the removable tray design make your workflow faster and more convenient. STARDOM has already envisioned these application advantages for users.
The cost performance of hard drives is already better than DVDs
Did you know that a 2TB hard drive is the equivalent of 400 4.7G DVDs? Are you still troubled with how to find an urgent file in all of the DVDs? Why not just buy a large-capacity hard drive to replace all of these DVDs? Use the hard drive as a large database and let the computer search the files for you so that all you need to do is concentrate on your creative work.
Never run out of hard drive space
As your iPhoto library grows, it may become too big to store on your computer’s hard drive. Aperture lets you set up as many external drives as you want and specify where to store each of your photos — without changing anything in your Aperture library. You can access and edit your photos the way you usually do, no matter where the originals are stored. This feature also allows you to add hard drives one at a time, whenever you need them. So your setup can grow along with your library.
Optional removable drive protective casing available
STARDOM 3.5” hard drive storage products are equipped with standard 3.5” SATA removable drive trays. With convenience and mobility, the trays provide easy maintenance, exchange of digital information, and sharing of materials for any project. Portable protective casing provides an extra layer of mobility and protection on the go.
Removable Design Makes it Easier to Use and Switch Out Multiple Hard Drives
The STARDOM's newly designed removable drive trays can accommodate 3.5" HDDs, 2.5" SSDs, and 2.5" HDDs (supporting a range of widths including 15 / 12 / 9.5 / 9 / 7 mm) and combine the convenience of external plug and play drives with the advantages in stability offered by internal drives, enabling you to enjoy the best of both worlds and increased mobility. In addition, the silver and black trays share the same structural design, making them compatible with all Stardom 3.5" HDD enclosures.
