Western Digital today introduced the new My Book Mirror Edition dual-drive storage systems, which can automatically store valuable personal content not once, but twice, to maximize data safety. It uses the mirroring feature of RAID 1 to provide redundant data protection.
Western Digital says this mirroring technology makes the new dual-drive systems an ideal storage solution for photographers, home users and small offices and anyone looking for extra assurance that their data is safe.
The external storage features the companyâ€™s GreenPower drives that consume approximately one-third less power than standard dual-drive external storage systems. It also boasts an efficient convection cooling system.
While its default configuration is RAID 1 for mirroring the drives, My Book Mirror Edition can also be configured for RAID 0, where data is striped between the dual drives and allowing for twice the storage capacity.
My Book Mirror Edition dual-drive storage systems are available now at $290 for the 1TB model and $550 for the 2TB version.
