Big Fault Tolerant Storage: OWC Now Offers a Supported and Preconfigured RAID-5 Solution via SoftRAID + Thunderbay

RAID-5 is going mainstream.

RAID-5 is a fault-tolerant form of RAID that is all but essential for anyone storing large data sets, or for whom downtime is unacceptable. Videographers, photographers, etc. Note however that RAID is not a backup.

OWC now offers a high performance preconfigured and fully supported plug-and-play RAID-5 solution utilizing SoftRAID 5.

The solution consists of the OWC Thunderbay with four drives configured as a RAID-5. Optional and highly recommended extras are the pre-tested and pre-configured cold spare. Should a drive fail, OWC supports the solution via its usual technical support and 48 hour turnaround. The cold spare means that in the event of drive failure, the unit can get back to rebuilding its fault tolerance immediately (no ordering or shipping delays).

Usable capacity with Thunderbay configured as RAID-5 solution:

20TB ===> 15TB
16TB ===> 12TB
12TB ===> 9TB
