Hardware-Based RAID 5 Storage Controller Onboard
The Fusion R400 RAID USB 3.0's integrated storage controller supports RAID 5 formatting without additional hardware or software, providing data protection in the event of a single drive failure and eliminating the need for a specialized RAID controller card. In addition to RAID 5, the R400 USB 3.0 supports RAID 0, RAID 10, Span, and JBOD drive formatting. With RAID 0, all four drives are combined into a single volume to offer improved performance and full drive capacity, but without any protection in case one of the drives fails. With RAID 10, two drives are combined into a single volume, while the remaining two drives mirror the data on the first two, providing good performance and better file security. Span formatting combines all four drives' capacity into a single, large volume. The JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) formatting option enables more concurrent audio file editing capabilities. Whichever mode you choose, setup is as simple as setting a switch. Drive operation and health status is available at a glance with multi-color LEDs.
