The iR2302 features a JBOD independent 3.5-inch bay
The iR2302 features a JBOD independent 3.5-inch bay. This allows you to independently interface with multiple hard disks at once, without needing to configure them into a complex RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) system. In this manner, each drive operates as a separate entity, providing you with the flexibility of data management and simplified drive extraction. This feature is highly beneficial for those seeking ease and speed of data accessibility and storage.
Dual RAID drives tray features a separate security key lock for enhanced protection
Each hard drive tray for RAID in the iR2302 comes equipped with an individual security key lock. This feature adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring the physical security of the stored data. By enabling lock-based access control to each hard drive, it prevents unauthorized removal or tampering of the drives, thereby safeguarding the crucial data stored within.
Intensive Multi RAID modes support along with a JBOD independent 3.5-inch bay
The iR2302 is a user-friendly RAID module that facilitates easy installation and supports hot-swappable hard drives. With dimensions comparable to a 5.25-inch optical drive, it can be effortlessly integrated into servers, workstations, or industrial computers.
Featuring two 2.5” SATA SSDs, the iR2302 can be configured into four RAID modes: RAID 1, RAID 0, JBOD, or SPAN (BIG).
