RAID 5 redundant backup
Highly Reliable Systems
First RAID G2: First RAID G2TM is a standalone RAID 5 redundant backup system with autocopy removable media capability for off-site backup storage. This system directly attaches to a fileserver using a single eSATA or USB2.0 connection. Connect it to any eSATA host bus multi-drive capable adapter. The eSATA port does not need RAID functionality because the internal inline controllers handle the RAID. Duplicate backup automatically. First RAID's top four drives are configured as a RAID 5 array and the fifth bottom drive as a standalone drive to back up the RAID 5 array. Use the RAID volume for nearline back-up with automatic redundant protection. Then automatically or through host software, copy the RAID volume to the bottom volume and remove for off-site disaster recovery and storage.

The inclusion and easy configuration of every necessary DSP module optimizes broadcast audio for improvements in tone, intelligibility and intensity. Hardware implementation is robust, allowing for multiple audio connections across all of the most widely-used interconnect protocols, with minimum latency, wide dynamic range, extremely low distortion.
