Robust Portable Design
The Sony RAID HDD is ideal for carrying around in the field due to its protective, shock proof outer case with carrying handle. The handle makes the unit extremely easy to carry around and the shock proof case will protect the chassis from knocks and bumps.
Additionally the Sony RAID is fitted with internal and external dampers to further protect the HDD from damage should it be dropped.
The Sony RAID has a shock-resistance of MIL 20G/11ms (in operating mode), 50Gms/11ms (in non-operating mode). The unit offers good vibration resistance for operating in a running car, realized with rubber dampers. A built-in handle provides easy portability.
RAID Options: RAID 0, RAID 1 and JBOD
The Sony RAID HDD is hardware RAID and can be configured in RAID 0 or RAID 1 using simple switches on the back of the unit.
- Use RAID 0 for maximum speed and full capacity, ideal for video editing.
- Use RAID 1 if you want a dual drive/mirrored system. In RAID 1 the Sony 4TB would become a 2TB dual drive and the 6TB would become a 3TB mirrored system.
- JBOD (Just a bunch of disks) – Should you wish to use both drives independently, set the drive up as JBOD. The 4TB show up as 2x 2TB on the desktop.
High Speed Interface Options
The Sony PSZ-RA4T and Sony PSZ-RA6T has two Thunderbolt 2 ports so can be daisy chained and can provide transfer speeds of up to 440MB/s. Ideal for working with 4K video. If you don’t have Thunderbolt the Sony RAID also has a single USB 3.0 port.
When transferring video files total up to 1TB, 150 minutes reduces to 50 minutes, one third of current transfer time* using with SxS PRO+ memory card (SBP-256D), SxS Reader Writer (SBAC-US30) and PSZ-RA6T.
