Glyph StudioRAID 4TB USB 3.0, FireWire, eSATA Professional RAID Hard Drive

Glyph StudioRAID 4TB USB 3.0, FireWire, eSATA Professional RAID Hard Drive Details

The Glyph StudioRAID is a high performance, ultra-reliable hardware RAID hard drive with USB 3.0, FireWire, and eSATA connectivity, supporting RAID 0 and RAID 1 modes. A temperature-controlled intelligent fan complements the StudioRAIDâ??s auto-sensing power supply for the best of speed and reliability. First we select the highest quality components available. Then we assemble the drives in our US factory, and perform regimented testing on every unit before it ships to you.

RAID 1 offers data redundancy and real-time backup by writing the same data to the two hard drives at the same time. Should a drive failure happen, data is still available on the remaining drive.

RAID 0 (striping) increases the performance of the drive system by spreading the data across two drives. RAID 0 is a proven technology for editing video, working with huge graphics files, sound libraries, and streaming instruments that play hundreds of samples simultaneously. RAID 0 is the default shipping drive mode.

Glyph StudioRAID 4TB USB 3.0, FireWire, eSATA Professional RAID Hard Drive Features

  • Smarter, Quieter, More Efficient Cooling
    • The StudioRAID uses a temperature-controlled fan making it overall quieter than our previous designs while still offering proper cooling. The case is designed with front-panel ventilation holes to draw cool air in, while exhausting warm air out the back - critical to the performance and reliability of the components.
  • Universal, Auto-Sensing Internal Power
    • External power adapters are easily misplaced, accidentally unplugged, and take up valuable outlet space. The StudioRAID uses an industry-standard power cord and a pro-quality internal power supply for the most efficient, reliable power source possible. StudioRAID will also sense when you connect over USB or FireWire, and automatically power on.
  • Disk Health Monitoring
    • The new StudioRAID includes upgraded disk monitoring features designed to keep your data safe. Should your drive begin to exhibit behavior indicating an imminent drive failure, the multifunction LED will alert you via a red light. Additionally, to safeguard against accidentally powering off your StudioRAID, the intelligent power switch must be held for 3 seconds to power off the drive.
  • Rackmount Kit Available
    • The GPT Rackmount Kit transforms your StudioRAID into a rack-mount hard drive. The rackmount kit accessory is capable of mounting one or two Studio-series drives.

What We Think

"Glyph's hard-drive systems have proven their worth in professional production circles for many years now. Your time is money and spending a little more on a hard drive system that gives you rock-solid reliability, connectivity, and the best HDD warranty anywhere, is simply stupid-simple insurance. Whether you're a professional working with top-artists or a weekend warrior, risking your hard work to inferior products is pretty dumb - especially after your drive has failed between backups. There is always some work that is lost, and the truth is that ALL hard-disk-drives will die; it's only a question of when. Glyph's drives stay cool, quietly - thus extending their lifespan without making distracting noise in your control room that you've worked to make and keep quiet. And if your drive should die, Glyph's warranty is there to help keep you working. Going Glyph is one of the smartest decisions you can make to protect your work. Therefore, Front End Audio recommends that you, too 'Go Glyph' !"
