Iomega Introduces New External RAID Storage Solution

Iomega Corporation announced the new Iomega UltraMax 640GB Desktop Hard Drive, providing Mac users with secure, high-capacity storage in a rugged enclosure.

In addition to the default mode of RAID 0, which stripes data across the UltraMax's two 7200-RPM SATA hard drives, other drive settings include 'spanned' (both hard drives are treated as a single volume), and 'simple' (each hard drive is treated as its own drive letter). For ease of use, the new Iomega UltraMax Desktop Hard Drive has a manual RAID switch, allowing the user to turn off the RAID configuration and use the drive configured as JBOD.

The Iomega UltraMax Hard Drive is preformatted with Apple's HFS+ file system for Mac OS X users. PC users can reformat the Iomega UltraMax Drive to NTFS for use with Windows, or can set up cross-platform use with an included FAT32 format tool.

The stackable UltraMax drive enclosure complements the new Mac Pro series of Apple computers as well as the older Power Mac series. The enclosure is metallic grey with a mesh grill, an echo of the Mac Pro computer's industrial design. Its three interfaces include FireWire 800, FireWire 400, and Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0), and it provides users with a three-port Hi-Speed USB hub for easy expansion. Cables for FireWire 800, FireWire 400, and USB 2.0 operation are included with the drive.

The UltraMax 640GB Desktop Hard Drive is compatible with Mac OS X 10.1 or above on Apple computers with an Intel processor or G3 processor or higher and a built-in USB or FireWire connection. Reformatted to NTFS or FAT32, it becomes compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP Home and XP Professional editions.

The Iomega UltraMax 640GB Desktop Hard Drive is expected to be available later this month for $449.95 (U.S. suggested retail).
