NewerTech Guardian MAXimus Now Available with up to 6TB + 6TB (12TB) Capacity

PR_gmax_12TBNewerTech today announced a new 6TB + 6TB capacity for the Guardian MAXimus line of dual-bay, high-performance external storage solutions.

High-Performance, Multiple Interfaces
The Guardian MAXimus, available in capacities up to 6TB + 6TB, adds tremendous storage capacity and throughput to any Mac or PC with USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire 800, or FireWire 400. It’s the perfect external drive for mission critical data such as financial records, accounting data, medical files, business projects, and Time Machine backups with sustained data rates up to 238MB/s read, 245MB/s write.

Zero Downtime
The Guardian MAXimus is Plug and Play ready in RAID-1 mode, for “mirrored” data across two drives. In the event of a single drive failure, the second drive holds all the data intact, allowing the user to continue working, accessing data without interruption. Once the failed drive is replaced, the new drive is automatically mirrored to restore data redundancy.

Compatible + Flexible
With USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire 800 and FireWire 400, the Guardian MAXimus requires no complicated setup and comes Plug and Play ready-to-use with the latest Mac models, legacy Macs, and PCs. Multiple interfaces provide the versatility to move between systems with complete interoperability for maximum data backup performance and flexibility.

Eight Models Available

All Guardian MAXimus solutions come Plug and Play ready and include all interface cables, and a $200 retail value disk utility software bundle, as well as an industry leading three-year limited warranty, with free lifetime US-based 24/7 technical support, a 48-hour repair turnaround time, and one year of complimentary Level 1 data recovery service.

“This new 6TB + 6TB capacity steps up the Guardian MAXimus line for the ever growing storage needs of our customers,” said Larry O’Connor, President, Newer Technology, Inc. “With the addition of this 20% larger model and the mirrored data protection, the Guardian MAXimus continues to deliver best-in-class performance and reliability in critical applications.”
