MicroNet Technology, Inc.k 2000, a high-performance, platform-independent 0/1/3/5/0+1 RAID solution. RAIDbank 2000 is scalable and houses up to 10 high performance SCA hard drive modules ranging in capacity from 18 to 36 GB each for a total capacity up to 360 GB per unit.

MicroNet Technology, Inc.k 2000 base unit comes standard with 3 hard drive modules that are each 18 or 36 GBs in capacity. Additional drive modules can be purchased initially, or as data storage needs increase. Each drive bay features a locking mechanism for increased security.

The system features a high-performance Ultra2 SCSI RAID controller capable of achieving transfer rates up to 80 MBps (megabytes per second) . Designed to provide exceptional resilience and fault tolerance, MicroNet Technology, Inc.k 2000 RAID controller supports RAID levels 0/1/3/5/0+1 to meet any application requirement.

RAIDbank 2000 supports an online "hot spare" capability for drive rebuilds without user intervention as well as the ability to interchange or "hot swap" drive modules while the system is active. Redundant hot swappable fans and load-sharing power supplies ensure data reliability in case of a power supply failure or changes in the safe operating environment. If a drive or other redundant component should fail, audible alarms will sound and visual indicators will direct the user to the troubled component.

It can be managed in three ways. A comprehensive and user friendly host-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) is included for use in DEC Alpha, DOS, Linux, NetWare, Novell, SCO Unix, Sun Solaris, UnixWare 7, Windows NT and Windows 95/98 environments. The system can also be managed through the terminal utility via a serial interface allowing seamless interaction with the system without the use of a dedicated application or workstation for complete platform independence. Lastly, MicroNet Technology, Inc.k 2000 LCD panel at the top of the unit provides quick and easy system management to configure, administer, and monitor the array's performance.
