The iR2321 features a JBOD in-line SSD extractor

 

The iR2321 features a JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) in-line SSD (Solid State Drive) extractor. This allows you to independently interface with multiple SSDs at once, without needing to configure them into a complex RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) system. In this manner, each drive operates as a separate entity, providing you with the flexibility of data management and simplified drive extraction. This feature is highly beneficial for those seeking ease and speed of data accessibility and storage.

 

Dual RAID drives tray features a separate security key lock for enhanced protection

 

Each hard drive tray for RAID in the iR2321 comes equipped with an individual security key lock. This feature adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring the physical security of the stored data. By enabling lock-based access control to each hard drive, it prevents unauthorized removal or tampering of the drives, thereby safeguarding the crucial data stored within.

 

Intensive Two RAID modes support along with a JBOD in-line SSD extractor

 

The iR2321 is a user-friendly RAID module that facilitates easy installation and supports hot-swappable hard drives. With dimensions comparable to a 5.25-inch optical drive, it can be effortlessly integrated into servers, workstations, or industrial computers.

 

Featuring two 2.5” SATA SSDs, the iR2321 can be configured into RAID 1 or RAID 0 modes.
