CRU-DataPort, Vancouver, Washington, launched ToughTech Duo, a RAID portable storage system works with two 2.5-inch notebook drives or solid state drives to back-up and store data. Designed for professional photographers and digital media users while on location or in the studio, ToughTech Duo maximizes storage in a mini footprint to ensure data integrity and protect digital assets. ToughTech Duo guards against data loss by writing the same information in real-time to both drives.
ToughTech Duo offers front-accessibility with removable trays to swap drives and a smart LCD menu to monitor drive health and to configure RAID mode. Connecting to any host computer via FireWire 800/400, USB 2.0 and eSATA provides flexibility, while the eSATA interface option offers the fastest transfer rates. ToughTech Duo also supports bus power with an included FireWire cable and ships with a multi-country compatible AC power supply for international use. A standard Kensington security slot is integrated for a lock to prevent theft. ToughTech Duo is available through CRU resellers starting at US$499.00 SRP.
