Product Specifications

eSATA External Storage Devices available in desktop tower and rack mount configurations with four (4) and five (5) HDD bay units. These devices are used with the NVR units to extend the storage capability up to a maximum of 16 TB.

Note: RAID 5 configuration requires a minimum of 3 hard disk drives (HDD). Due to the fact that the equivalent amount of storage equal to one HDD is required by the Operating System (OS) to facilitate fail safe backup and the rebuilding of any replaced HDD; if one HDD fails, the entire storage system will continue to function. When the failed HDD is replaced the OS will rebuild the new HDD with the data that was on the original HDD that failed. This means if the storage system has a total of 3 HDD’s, only the storage space of 2 HDD’s can be considered as usable for storage calculations; if a total of 5 HDD’s, only 4 HDD’s can be considered as usable.
