Professional Grade Performance. Data Protection + Massive Capacity.
The Qx2 is engineered to excel for applications such as backup, audio/video, photography, data management and more. Preconfigured, plug and play ready in RAID-5 mode (high performance w/redundancy), you can easily change among its RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, span, and independent modes for the best combination of speed, capacity, and redundancy to meet any need you have.
Hardware RAID combines the Qx2's four drives to suit your workflow or project needs.RAID 0RAID 5RAID 10spanindependentCapacityRedundancyPerformanceCapacityRedundancyPerformanceCapacityRedundancyPerformanceCapacityRedundancyPerformanceCapacityRedundancyPerformanceCapacityThe total of all drives combined.RedundancyDedicates no drive space to data redundancy.PerformanceDrive speeds are utilized together to provide the fastest performance possible.CapacityThe total of all drives minus one for redundancy.RedundancyProvides data parity to ensure no loss of data if a drive fails.
