Iwill’s Unique SIDE® RAID 66™ Boosts Storage Performance
and Capacity Irvine, CA March 1, 2000 -- Iwill USA Corporation
has announced the arrival of SIDE® RAID 66™, the unique
hardware-enabled IDE RAID controller card designed for
long-term upgrade ability through doubling the performance
and storage capacity of your Ultra ATA66 hard drives (Fujitsu,
IBM, Maxtor, Quantum, Seagate, and Western Digital). Providing
a performance similar to SCSI RAID, SIDE® RAID 66™ offers
better stability compared to software-based RAID solutions,
and offers an incredible user-friendly installation procedure.
With SIDE® RAID 66™, Iwill delivers an easy and affordable
IDE RAID solution using low-cost ATA-66 drives for Desktop,
Workstation, and Server solutions.
The SIDE® RAID 66™ connects onto your PCI bus, and links
your high capacity drives as a single ”virtual” drive
with one single partition on the PCI system. The SIDE®
RAID 66™ supports a maximum capacity of four hard drives,
and uses IDE RAID 0, 1, and 0+1 functions.
The RAID 0 striping function increases the speed of your
storage capacity by spreading data over two or more drives,
and is excellent for video production, image editing,
computer animation, and for gamers who require better
performance for their hard drives. The RAID 1 mirroring
function provides data protection through duplication
onto a second paired drive, and is an excellent solution
for systems using software in accounting, finance, medical,
legal, retail, and restaurants. RAID 0+1 function provides
hardware protection through fault tolerance.
The SIDE® RAID 66™ supports Windows 2000, Windows NT
4.0, and Windows 9x, and comes bundled with easy-to-use
video editing software—great for home movies. It also
comes with a 5-year limited warranty, with full benefit
of Iwill’s technical support and customer service team.
