DAT Optic introduces the first cost effective hardware RAID and JBoD four tray-less drive system, our qBOX-eS with dual high speed host interface: eSATA. A perfect high speed, hot plug storage solution for MAC, Windows, and Linux.
With our qBOX-eS, four HDDs can be configured as four (4) individual hot-plug drives , or RAID 0/1/3/5/10/SPAN/CLONE modes and access via eSATA without driver or additional software required.
To use it - just simply plug in eSATA* host port, within seconds all the HDDs will show up. JBoD is the default mode or configured as high reliable raid mode that will protected data in event of HDD fail.
As storage capacity requirements increase, data storage without drive fault tolerance implement, potential of lost data, down time and lost revenue needs become greater. As our qBOX-eS offers fault tolerant RAID levels 1/3/5/10, if a HDD fails and a new HDD is inserted, the built-in RAID engine will reconstruct the inserted drive so the data stays intact and fault tolerant, but if you need more speed than RAID0, without fault tolerant would be the best option.
Save Time and Money
With the new patented connector, end users can use the hard disk like compact disc or floppy disk are being used. There is no tool or hard drive tray required, just the hard drive itself. It saves time, money, and prolongs SATA HDDs due to NO SCRATCH connections.

RAID GUI Management
RAID set up and management can be accessed via RAID GUI compatible to MAC, Window and OpenSUSE. This method allows end users to create, delete, configure, and monitor RAID set(s).
Create/Delete RAID set(s)
With RAID GUI utility, you can create/delete and modify RAID sets in seconds. Just select mode and click apply and RAID sets can be deleted or created within seconds.
Monitor and Report
Unlike other RAID systems in the market, qBOX-eS fully supports S.M.A.R.T. Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology via RAID GUI utiltiy
With a simple set up, our qBOX-eS can perform an email notification with selections from information to critical events. This allows administrators to foresee error read/error write based on S.M.A.R.T feature of each individual HDD. This allows you to predict when HDD is about to fail.
Embedded Raid Advance Features
Embedded into its hardware RAID controller, the suspend mode and RAID rebuilt priority setting functions are easy to control. These allow end users to customize the configurations per their desires.
Suspend : Set the RAID array to sleep mode within specific idling timing, from 1 to 10922 min (half year 182 days). Suspend mode will save electricity, make our qBOX-eS more environmentally friendly, and of course prolong the life of hard drives.
RAID rebuilt priority setting:
Allow RAID engine to allocate more I/O CPU for rebuilt a degrading RAID or concentrate I/O operation. This will affect the transfer rate when rebuilt is needed.
qBOX-eS system RAID includes all other advanced technologies such as:
- - OneTouch back up solution - software included
- - Compact, Wide range AC input
- - Over rate PSU more than 100% to get the best of thermal and reliability
- - Push and Pull air flow to optimize the thermal versus fan noise
- - Create RAID with password to protect accidental deletion
