SAN FRANCISCO - EZQuest announced Monday the Cinema Pro rack-mountable RAID solution, a RAID solution that can hold up to 16 hard drives with up to 24 TB of storage. The device is hot swappable, and conforms to the 3U rack mount form factor. It connects via an external PCIe bus.
The Cinema Pro has 2GB of onboard SDRAM cache memory, and features support for RAID 0, 1, 1E, 3, 5, 6 and JBOD (Just a Bunch of Drives), all of which is configured via EZQuest's GUI RAID utility. The software also offers e-mail (SMTP) and remote (SNMP) support notification.
The device also has an optional redundant power supply, and a RAID cache battery backup module.
The Cinema Pro is scheduled to ship in March of 2009, with a starting price of US$8,849. The company is showing it booth #2006 at Macworld this week.
