Initializing with New Drives
Related: Other World Computing, OWC Thunderbay, RAID, RAID-4, RAID-5, SoftRAID, SSD, storage, Thunderbolt, video
MPG used SoftRAID 5.0.4 to initialize and test with the various flavors of RAID.
Since the unit was supplied for teesting with brand-new drives in packaging, so they were screwed into the drive sleds and installed. Then they were initialized as shown with the screen shots that follow. An off-the-shelf unit with drives installed has all this done already.

New unit with 4 new drives
Shown below in SoftRAID, four uninitialized OWC 6G SSDs.
4 drives initialized as 4 volumes
Four OWC 6G SSDs as four independent volumes.
4 drives as a RAID-5
Select the 4 drives, then choose. By default the volume will be all the available capacity, but a smaller size can be chosen (to make more than one volume, repeat)
