ICY Concept: How to increase work efficiency by adding high performance RAID data protection to small business desktop computers, servers or workstations?

Data redundancy is important for a small business because drive failure does happen quiet often. Using RAID as data redundancy provides a fail-safe against hardware failure. Imagine the impact if you lost a day’s data, a week’s data, a year’s data due to hard drive failure. What would happen? How could you recover?

Many of the small business desktop computers are not equipped with RAID protection. These systems may offer simple RAID option on their motherboard, but it is not as reliable as standalone RAID protection device. However, it’s not an easy task to setup your own RAID system: First, you need available PCI-E slot for RAID controller card. Second, these controller cards are quiet costly. Therefore, at ICY DOCK we introduced the MB992SKR-B full metal dual bay RAID 2.5” SATA HDD & SSD mobile rack. It allows you to effortlessly add a RAID (redundant array of independent disks) option to your enterprise desktop computers without adding an additional RAID controller card. The MB992SKR-B fits 2 x 2.5” hard drive or SSD into a single 3.5” front device bay and it has a built-in high performance hardware RAID chipset. To add RAID protection to your system, simply insert 2 x 2.5” SATA hard drive or Solid State Drive to the MB992SKR-B and then connect the MB992SKR-B to the SATA port of your motherboard and then secure the MB992SKR-B onto the 3.5” front device bay and you are ready to go. The MB992SKR-B provides RAID 0 (stripping), RAID 1 (mirroring), BIG and JBOD modes, with hot-swap tray design and full metal body. The ToughArmor MB992SKR-B is an ideal storage device for any small business computers, SMB servers and enterprise workstation systems.
