Today Addonics Technology unveiled its new Sapphire Snap-In Disk Array, an external storage device that is aimed at the high-performance segment and features easy expandability and RAID capabilities. Addonics says that the new Sapphire Array is a great portable solution for applications that demand high-performance and large storage quantities.




The new Sapphire Snap-In Disk Array comes equipped with different interfaces for fast external storage performance including an eSATA port, USB 3.0 and even a mini SAS connection. The Array allows users to hot-swap up to four 2.5-inch storage drives for quick and easy changes. Before drives can be configured as for individual drives, a single large volume or high-performance RAID grouping with redundancy for reliability.




Users are able to configure the RAID settings by using the bundled RAID utility software or by flipping DIP switches on the back of the device. Software for monitoring the device on Windows, Mac and Linux is also available. Addonics says the new Sapphire Snap-In Disk Array will retail at an MSRP of $245.
