JAPAN, August 23, 2006 - I-O Data Device, Inc. (“I-O Data” below) announced LANDISK Tera, HDL-GT Series, new LAN terabyte hard disk featuring Gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-T) support and RAID 0/0+1/5 compatibility both in Japan and Korea. Shipping for the Japanese market is scheduled to begin at the end of September. The product lineup features two different capacity models: 1TB (terabyte) and 2TB(*1), and the target shipping volume is forecast at 3,000 units per month.
This product is a large-capacity LAN-connectable hard disk that incorporates four removable hard disks. It features high-speed Gigabit Ethernet support (with a theoretical data transfer rate of 1,000 Mbps) and uses Serial ATA drives for enabling high-speed file sharing and network backups. The cartridge-type hard disks use Relational HD(*2) for flexible building of four different types of RAID configurations. Hot-swapping support is also provided for allowing cartridge changes while the power is still on. This enables to replace hard disks without stopping the system, such as during disk failure.

RAID is an abbreviation for “Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks” and refers to technology where multiple hard disks operate and appear as a single hard disk. This product can build four types of RAID for flexible driving of RAID 0/1/5, which makes it ideal for any kind of data operation that could be expected over a LAN. For these reasons, we consider this product the ideal solution for small companies and SOHO users.
