The ST2 is equipped with three configuration modes to suit every need

The ST2 has three built-in disk configuration modes: RAID 1 (Safe Mode), RAID 0 (Speed Mode), and JBOD (Two Independent Volumes) for you to choose according to your needs.

The RAID 1 function provides fully automatic backup that ensures data security
The ST2’s built-in RAID 1 function controls every record that enters the system, and automatically backs it up into two copies in real-time mode, storing them into the two built-in hard disks separately.

The two identical copies of data protect against data corruption, so that the data is available even if one of the hard disks is damaged, thus
attaining 100% data security.

RAID 0 functionality increases storage speed and performance. The new ST2 is equipped with a RAID 0 storage mode, which means users can attain up to 330MB/s read speed
with the ST2’s USB3.0 transmission interface. Whether it is used for search and editing photo galleries, or for video editing and synthesis, it promises smooth and easy operation.

The SOHOTANK ST2-SB3 is a high performance storage unit that allows it to work with both Mac and PC seamlessly. The hardware enables users to use this with MAC and PCs at the same time.

The Sohotank ST2-SB3 2-Bay USB 3.0 RAID Array from Stardom features two hot-swappable drive trays that can accommodate 3.5" and 2.5" SATA III HDDs or SSDs. It can support up to 8TB per drive for a max capacity of 16TB. Multiple RAID settings such as RAID 0, 1, and JBOD (independent), enable you to configure this device to your needs. Connect it to the host system via USB 3.0 and e-SATA. Before using the ST2-SB3’s e-SATA port, make sure that the host supports the port multiplier function in order for system to identify all the drives. By using the USB 3.0 interface and a RAID 0 configuration, the Sohotank can achieve read speeds of up to 330 MB/s. Performance will vary depending on your system and the drives installed. With an aluminum unibody design and a built-in low-noise fan, the Sohotank will keep your drives protected, cool, and operational.
