The newly announced RAID family of solutions are ideal for content creators, small-scale enterprises and any user requiring safe data management from a space-saving external storage device. DataTale offers RAID Systems to accommodate a variety of requirements with configurations including three 4-Bay and one 2-Bay RAID systems, all of which are compatible with the DataTale portable 3.5" hard drive enclosure.
Combining any of these DataTale RAID systems with the Portable 3.5 inch aluminum enclosure, which also has quadruple interfaces offers mobile professionals the peace of mind that valuable content is safe. Data is easily backed up or stored with the Portable 3.5 inch enclosure.
