Eurocom is offering its Panther 3.0 Notebook with 4TB in RAID 0/1/5/10 – configured with 4 x 1TB WD Scorpio Blue 2.5-inch HDD.
The WD Scorpio Blue 1TB drive uses advanced power management features and algorithms to optimize the way the drive seeks for data, which improves power consumption and increases battery life. Western Digital uses exclusive WhisperDrive technology to create one of the quietest 2.5-inch drives available.
In a Mobile Server, reliability is a must – Western Digital, also uses SecurePark technology to hold the recording heads away from the disk surface during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off. This guarantees that the head never touches the disk surface resulting in improved reliability due to less head wear and improved nonoperational shock tolerance.
Mobile Hard drives have several advantages over their desktop counterparts. Mobile Drives are higher efficiency drives in terms of power consumption compared to desktop drives and are smaller in size.
RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks, and is a technology that provides increased data storage abilities through redundancy. Multiple drives are arranged in units where data is distributed across the drives in different RAID levels.
The ultimate goal of RAIDing - drives is to provide increased levels of data reliability and backup as well as increased levels of read/write performance. Different levels of RAID correspond with varying levels of performance and redundancy - this is why Eurocom offers choices between RAID 0/1/5/10 in the Panther 3.0 Mobile Server.
