Guardian MAXimus – Plug & Play RAID 1 now even more affordable.

Globe-n-GMAXNewerTech’s Guardian MAXimus is the Plug & Play solution that keeps your data safe and reliable with real-time, high performance data redundancy via hardware RAID-1 Mirroring. With its FW800/400+eSATA+USB 2.0 “Quad Interface”, you can connect a “GMAX” to any computer with Plug and Play ease via one of those four connections and it will take care of the rest. This solution is a hardware RAID 1 “Mirror” which automatically keeps your data backed up in real time to protect against a hard disk failure.

LED indicators on the front of the solution indicate the status of the two drives. Should one of the two internal drives experience a malfunction, the unit will still function normally until you can repair it. If the malfunction is a recoverable “soft” type, the Guardian MAXimus will automatically rebuild the mirror, in the background. If the disk failure requires a drive to be replaced, once the new drive is installed, the Guardian MAXimus will automatically rebuild the Mirror without loss of data or additional down time.

Available in capacities of up to 2.0TB of mirrored backup, the Guardian MAXimus is certified for Audio/Video, Graphics, Music, general data needs and more! It’s perfect for the ultimate Time Machine backup, too! With its “Quad” interface, you can easily hook it up to any computer—Mac or PC—and be up and running in no time. You can even use it as a boot drive.

Of course, as with all OWC and Newer Technology storage solutions, we include all the cables so you don’t have to go searching for the right one for your connection choice. On top of that, we include Intech HD Speedtools Utility Suite and the full retail version of Prosoft Engineering DataBackup III for Mac OS X (a $59 retail value) and the full retail version of NovaStor NovaBackup for Windows (a $49 retail value). To top it off, we back it all up with a Three Year NewerTech Solution Warranty.

With all that, the Guardian MAXimus is a great value. Now, though, we’ve made it an even better value with some great new pricing.

Everybody should have some sort of backup plan. With built-in redundancy and even more affordable pricing, the Guardian MAXimus is a great component to your backup strategy.

  • I recently purchased the 1.0TB + 1.0TB Mirror 7200RPM Quad Interface version of the Guardian Maximus through OWC and it is an incredible drive.

    Build quality, performance, and price are all top notch. I especially appreciate the choice to go with hardware RAID here as it will make future upgrades quick and painless.
