Iomega Power Pro Desktop Hard Drive Packs Two Terabytes

Iomega Logo

The new Iomega Power Pro Desktop Hard Drive packs four hot-swappable SATA hard drives to enable 2TB of storage space. It offers FireWire 800, FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 connectivity to allow transfer rates up to 70MB/sec.

For physical security, the Iomega Power Pro comes with two keys so users can lock down its drive bays. For data security, the four 500GB SATA drives can be arrayed in RAID 0 for maximum capacity and speed, RAID 0+1 for striping and mirroring data across the hard drives for data redundancy, or RAID 5 and RAID 5+ spare for a good balance between performance and data protection.

The Iomega Power Pro Desktop Hard Drive also has an LCD panel that displays information on the current status for RAID level and available storage capacity, as well as fan and temperature conditions.

The Power Pro will be available starting April 10 for $1700 (that computes to about $0.85 per gigabyte of storage).
