Share Article

The nRAID System provides RAID levels 0, 1, 0+1, 3 and 5 or JBOD configurations featuring Serial ATA connectivity, and NDAS technology.

DAT Optic, Inc. announces the availability of the highly anticipated nRAID, the world's first Network Direct Attach Storage 2.5TeraByte RAID system.

NDAS technology allows direct storage connection to the network, the data process path and speed is as durable and fast as a computer's internal storage. With nRAID, it is easy to adapt nRAID as the central storage unit for all business or entertainment needs. Each nRAID has a unique hardware ID and access keycodes which allows for computer users read and write access, read access only or no access to NetDisk specification despite the fact that all are connected on the same network! Also, since nRAID requires no TCP/IP setting, the unit is invisible and safe from external hackers. nRAID’s is the ONLY external (portable) RAID system which offers the un-parallel sharing feature with two built-in independent data paths. As Ethernet ports configure with channel 0 (data path), where other independent channel 1 move data thru Serial ATA, therefore two different computer systems (OS independent) can access the data in our nRAID.

With the same RAID functionality as eRAID, the nRAID also allows direct connection to any network without the need for IP configurations or expensive servers! nRAID is designed from the ground up for easy expansion, secure data storage, and easy file share in a fast, easy, cost-effective and extremely high fault tolerance system.

The nRAID System utilizes high-performance 64bit RISC processor, 64bit memory architecture, built-in 64MB SDRAM cache buffer and 66MHz/32bit path at burst rate up to 266MB/sec to control five (5) hot-swaps ATA-133 HDD (no size limit) with unprecedented performance whether in Share or Independent Volume configuration thru Serial ATA and/or Ethernet.

With the nRAID System, RAID level 0, 1 (0+1), 3, 5 and JBOD can be controlled and managed through a front LCD control panel or by a platform-independent embedded management utility through RS-232 or USB port. This platform-independent method allows end-users (IT) to implement VT-100 console and/or HTTP proxy browser-base utilities.

The nRAID System’s capabilities include redundant flash image, the firmware mirror provides a unique redundancy feature, which ensures the system controller availability, as well as online RAID expansion, online RAID level and Stripe size Migration, automatic Failed Driver detection and Rebuilding, Global Online Spare, HDD hot-swap, Instant Availability and Background Initialization.

The nRAID System is the most cost-effective IDE disk drive array up to 2.5TB system, with completely integrated high performance and data protection capabilities, which are easily hot-plug/integrated into servers and workstations. It can also meet and exceed the rapidly growing demand from the Small to Medium Businesses and Audio/Video Editing market.

DAT Optic’s nRAID System is fully compatible with Win98, SE, ME, 2K, XP, MAC OS 9.2* and Linux*
