Next week is the Summer Solstice, the longest period of daylight of the year (at least in the Northern Hemisphere). However, if you’ve ever lost data to a failed hard drive, that just feels like the longest day ever. Fortunately, OWC has dropped the prices on NewerTech Guardian MAXimus solutions, to help make sure that the “long days” you have are the kinds with lots of sunshine, not the kind with lots of lost data.
The NewerTech Guardian MAXimus RAID-1 FW800/400+eSATA+USB2 ‘Quad Interface’ solution is a hardware RAID 1 ‘Redundant Mirror’ which automatically keeps your data backed up in real time to protect against a hard disk failure. Should a drive ever experience a malfunction, normal data operation continues seamlessly. If the malfunction is a recoverable ‘soft’ type, the Guardian MAXimus will rebuild the mirror (also without data interruption) automatically. If the disk failure requires a drive to be replaced, once the new drive is installed. the Guardian MAXimus will automatically rebuild the Mirror while you use it.
In addition to the benefits of Hardware RAID 1 Mirroring, these solutions are fully certified for Audio/Video, Backup, Graphics, Music, General Data needs and more!
