The TowerRAID TR5M+ is a compact RAID tower utilizing the latest SATA II port multiplier feature, where one single eSATA cable connects to five SATA hard drives. Bundled with a high performance RAID controller card RR622, its RAID 5 performance is capable of reaching over 200 MB/s. Online expansion is a feature included in the controller card so that RAID could be expanded without the need to recreate the storage space or erase the existing data. Advanced monitoring functions include real time hard drives health status and e-mail notification for critical events. Designed with easy installation in mind, the TR5M+ is designed with five hot-swappable tray modules so that hard drives could be removed and installed with ease. The included dual-port eSATA 6 Gb/s PCIe 2.0 x 1 RAID controller card allows the connection of up to two TR5M+ units using only two cables, while all drives could be configured into a single or multiple RAID arrays, providing over 200 MB/s in performance.
