January 18, 2017 – Taipei, Taiwan - Innodisk, the service-driven provider of flash, memory and peripheral modules for industrial and embedded systems has introduced the world’s smallest RAID 1 solution. As embedded systems and devices became smaller, there are more and smaller form factor storage devices that include 2.5”, mSATA and M.2 SSDs that can be used as boot-up disks or data disks in small systems.
Small industrial or embedded systems usually have small-size, small- capacity embedded storage. For data security and installation of the operating system, it is difficult to have a quick and simple backup solution. In order to prevent the disk failure, Innodisk’s embedded RAID 1 solution can achieve real-time synchronization of information to ensure service continuity.
Furthermore, with the purpose of allowing users to monitor the status of the RAID card at any time, the RAID 1 embedded expansion card provides a set of Windows management tools, called iRAID. In addition to monitoring RAID card status, iRAID provides e-mail notifications for abnormal conditions and specified events. iRAID, used with Innodisk’s SSDs for full SMART information, gives users complete control over their SSDs.
Innodisk iRAID is a software tool for RAID cards. It simplifies the configuration and management of Innodisk’s RAID controller and provides a user-friendly interface that can be used in different types of systems. The iRAID software tool is suitable for the following RAID cards:
- ELPS-32R1 provides PCIe x4 and support M.2 SSD
- E2SS-32R1 /E2SS-32R2 provides 2.5”form factor and supports mSATA and M.2 SSD
- EMPS-32R1 provides mPCIe interface and supports SATA SSD
- EMSS-32R1 provides mSATA interface and supports SATA SSD
The Innodisk RAID card series with iRAID is currently available. For additional information, please contact your local Innodisk sales representatives or distributors.
