IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ — NetCom USA, a value leader in desktop storage solutions, today introduced a low-cost 'hardware based' RAID 5 storage system that combines the latest eSATA host interface with a hardware platform that deploys best-of-breed components in a compact 4-drive enclosure to provide up to 3.0 terabytes of storage capacity at less than $1,200 per terabyte.

The new NR5-4 model series incorporates the latest serial ATA drive technology — and comes with hot-swappable SATA drives. The NR5-4 systems support RAID levels 0, 5 and 10 for high performance and data protection. They're ideal for workgroups, departments and small businesses that need to add or consolidate storage and provide high levels of data protection. The systems include PCI host adapters, matched to a customer's needs, to connect them to network servers and desktop computers. Their eSATA host interfaces provide up to 6 times the throughput performance of competing USB2 or Firewire(R) (IEEE-1394) based systems.

These new data storage systems are supplied with software drivers that support several operating systems, including Mac OSX(R), Vista(R), Windows(R) and Linux(R). They also include front mounted LCD's and keypads for easy setup and status monitoring, 1 meter host cables, and 1 year comprehensive warranties. Network based remote monitoring, with email notification, is also included for Window based environments.

The NR5-4 systems are also ideal for adding protected, low-cost, storage for network servers, digital video editing workstations, digital photo storage, and high speed backup applications. The unit is only 8.13-inches high and 11.28-inches deep, making it very easy to deploy.

"Getting 3 terabytes of raw storage capacity in a small desktop platform at an affordable price is an important consideration for many of our clients," said William Long of Digital Microware, a systems integrator and storage consulting firm. "Add in NetCom's excellent pricing, and the NR5-4 systems represent value that is unrivaled in the storage industry."
