Addonics Technologies Inc. announced Monday its new 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch Snap-In Disk Arrays -- removable drive systems that are ideal solutions for increasing hard drive storage in both small and large computing systems.
The Addonics 2.5-inch Snap-In Disk Array is a high density removable hard drive system that supports installing up to four 2.5-inch SATA hard drives or SSDs into one standard 5.25-inch drive bay. This compact form factor makes it an ideal solution for increasing hard drive storage in small computers, mini ATX systems or for applications that require a large number of drives.
The 2.5-inch Snap-In Disk Array is designed to accommodate any 2.5-inch SATA hard drive or SSD with a drive height up to 12.7 mm. Each drive slot is equipped with its own power and drive access LEDs. A lock on the drive door secures each hard drive in the Disk Array unit.
The 3.5-inch model allows the user to install as many as five 3.5-inch hard drives into three 5.25-inch drive bays on any desktop PC, Tower or 4U Rack mount system.
The 3.5-inch Snap-In Disk Array also increases the number of hard drives that can be installed into many systems or storage chassis, such as the Addonics line of storage towers. Together with Addonics Port Multiplier, users can create a RAID storage solution with large storage capacity and drive redundancy in a compact 3-bay drive enclosure.
Installation of both Snap-in Disk Arrays is as easy as using a VHS cassette. The hard drive can be slid into one of the drives slots and close the drive door. To remove, the drive door must be opened and the hard drive will automatically eject.
Prices range from $69.95 for the 2.5-inch model to $99 for the 3.5-inch version.
