DPT ships fault-tolerant RAID array

Distributed Processing Technology (DPT) recently began shipping the RAIDstation7 Storage Array subsystem. Available in tower or rack-mount versions, the array supports 40MBps Ultra-Wide SCSI SCA-2 (single connector attachment) drives. DPT`s Ultra SCSI Extension Card incorporates SCSI bus repeater and transmission converter technology. The repeater increases SCSI bus lengths and can be used to daisy chain two arrays. The transmission converter converts differential SCSI signals from

the host to single-ended signals, and vice versa. With 18GB drives, the total capacity is 1.7TB. Without drives, the RAIDstation7 is priced at $2,823, including two power supplies, two cooling modules, and one SCSI cable.
