T4 – PROFESSIONAL HIGH PERFORMANCE 4-BAY RAID STORAGE
The T4 is a powerful 4-bay storage device that utilizes the power of Thunderbolt™ 2 technology. The T4 supports RAID 0 for maximum performance, RAID 1 for four automatic back-ups of user data, RAID 5 for performance/protection, and JBOD for four independent disks.
“Traditional 4-bay storage solutions have a much larger form-factor than the T4. CalDigit’s focus on design and usability has allowed us to create a much more compact storage solution that takes up less space, but still retains extreme performance.”, said Kosta Panagos, Director of Marketing at CalDigit.
The T4 is one of the fastest 4-bay storage solutions on the market. With 3.5” HDDs installed it can achieve speeds of 750MB/s, and with 2.5” SSDs installed it reaches extreme performance of 1370MB/s in RAID 0.
The RAID 5 functionality of the T4 allows users to not only achieve great performance, but also single drive redundancy. The beauty of RAID 5 is that it gives users piece-of-mind for their valuable files whilst at the same time allowing for outstanding performance.
The T4 also features CalDigit’s new industry leading 5 Year Warranty that brings a new level support for professional users who need the reassurance of a 5 year warranty. Traditional RAID storage solutions offer a 1-3 year warranty. CalDigit is leading the way with a 5 year warranty that is also backed by CalDigit’s industry renowned technical support.
CalDigit’s investment in Thunderbolt™ 2 has ushered in a new era of 4K capable devices, allowing professional users to integrate a powerful 4K workflow. The dual Thunderbolt™ 2 ports on the T4 allow users to connect a 4K monitor as part of the daisy-chain, with ease and simplicity.
“Thunderbolt™ 2 gives professional users the performance they need for working with high-resolution uncompressed 4K video formats, and the T4’s data transfer performance means working with 4K files has never been easier”, said Kosta Panagos, Director of Marketing at CalDigit.
