2-Bay 2.5”/3.5" SATA III HDD/SSD Hardware RAID Storage
2 Thunderbolt™ 2 ports, Hot-Swappable Drive
Thunderbolt 2 technology in ST2-TB is phenomenally fast. The two Thunderbolt 2 ports on ST2-TB features dual 20-Gbps channels for data transfer and that’s up to four times faster than USB 3.0. But beyond speed, Thunderbolt gives you unprecedented expansion capabilities. You can daisy-chain as many as six Thunderbolt devices to a single port.
The ST2-TB built-in with three configuration modes: RAID 1 (Safe Mode), RAID 0 (Speed Mode), and JBOD (Two Independent Volumes) for you to choose according to your needs.
JBOD function provides two independent disk data access convenience
In this mode, you can install two disks that have different volumes and use them independently.There is no RAID configuration and without special safety or speed differences. You can also use this mode in apply with other STARDOM modules.
RAID 0 functionality increases storage speed and performance
The new ST2-TB is equipped with RAID 0 storage mode, which enables user to attain up to 724MB/s read speed with ST2-TB's Thunderbolt transmission interface. Whether it is used for searching and editing photo galleries, or video editing and synthesis, it promises to deliver a smooth and easy operation.
The RAID 1 function provides fully automatic backup that ensures data security
To maximize data protection. Data is written identically to both drive (Mirror) simultaneously. In the event of a drive failure, the second drive will take over. RAID 1 provides the highest level of protection in hard drive storage.

2. ST2-TB will also stay SLEEP Mode if your Mac Computer gets into SLEEP or IDLE Mode too.
3. In case if you use two old HDDs which already have other RAID setting, we would strongly suggest you to first reset them with JBOD mode at your ST2 before setting them to the RAID mode you will use ST2-TB.
