Velocity2 Storage: They Come in Terabytes

Velocity2 External Backup Drive

CMS Products of Costa Mesa, California has announced its Velocity2 external backup drive, a sleek and powerful storage solution for professionals requiring terabytes of space and the fastest data transfer speeds.

Velocity2 comes in 1.25TB, 2.5TB and 3.75TB versions (1 Terabyte is 1,000 Gigabytes). To achieve this massive storage the Velocity2 actually uses 5 SATA hard drives with transfer rates of 2.6GB/minute. The drives are arranged in selectable RAID configurations depending on the user’s preference. Users can choose from safe (RAID1), Fast, (RAID 0), Big (combination of both drives for increased capacity) and JBOD (just a bunch of drives) settings.

It comes with its own CMS BounceBack Professional software to take care of formatting, backing up, scheduling and other chores.

And what do you pay for gigabytes per second of speed and terabytes of storage? $1799 for 1.25TB, $3499 for 2.5TB and $4799 for 3.75TB.
