AKiTiO 4-Bay SATA -to- Thunderbolt2 Thunder2 Quad TBQ-TIAA-AKTU RAID options

  • JBOD- is a cost-effective network storage solution. If you have a lot of temporarily data to store, JBODs are an economical solution. Mind that the data is not critical or you have an effective backup scheme in place. JBOD is either a single or number of disks which are grouped together and presented to the Operating System as a single volume, called 'Spanning'. If you lose a single disk in the JBOD then you possibly will lose data, as the concept of a JBOD does not include not fault tolerance.
  • RAID 0 is ideal for non-critical storage of data that have to be read/written at a high speed, such as on a video editing station or an image retouching. RAID 0 offers great performance, both in read and write operations. All storage capacity is used, there is no overhead.
  • RAID 1 (mirrored drive) is ideal for critical storage, like accounting systems. It is also suitable for small servers in which only two data drives will be used (disc mirroring). It offers excellent read speed and a write-speed that is comparable to that of a single drive. In case a drive fails, data do not have to be rebuild, they just have to be copied to the replacement drive (mirroring hdd ). It can be used as back up mirror.
  • RAID 5 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. It is ideal for file and application servers that have a limited number of data drives. Very fast read data transactions while write data transactions are bit slower. In case if drive fails, you still have access to all data, even while the failed drive is being replaced and system rebuilds the data on the new drive.
  • RAID 6 combines efficient storage with excellent security and decent performance. Similar to RAID 5, read data transactions are very fast. Two drives can fail and you still have access to all data, even while the failed drives are being replaced. It makes it more secure.
  • RAID 10 combines pros and cons of RAID 0 and RAID 1 in one single system. If one drive fails, the rebuild time is very fast because data being copied from the surviving mirror to a new drive.

AKiTiO 4-Bay SATA -to- Thunderbolt2 Thunder2 Quad TBQ TIAA AKTU reviews


09/07/2015 | | GB Flag |
Having extensively researched options for Thunderbolt 2 external storage for my MacBook Pro laptop, I finally decided on this. Caldigit and Pegasus offer great hardware raid options, but they're much more expensive. Plus I'm switching from an old MacPro tower so had four HDDs I wanted to use. Most of the hardware raid options have drives included. It's incredibly easy to set up, if you're used to plug and play hard drives. I'm running two pairs of different raid setups in the same box. A raid 0 for speed and a raid 1 for security. The raid 0 is running at about 200MB per second read/write. Although you'll get better speeds with higher quality spinning disks or much faster if you afford SSDs. The fan is pretty quiet, louder than a stand alone external drive, but quieter than hardware raids I've used. It's very solidly built which probably accounts for the relatively high price, for what is just an empty box, fan and sata/thunderbolt connections. Overall very pleased though.

Can you confirm this enclosure works with 6Tb drives please?
Hi Paul,

There is no limits with capacity so this unit will work with any SATA drives
