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.

  2. LANDISK Tera includes two connectors of USB and eSATA. This enables usage for one-touch copying for digital camera photos, print servers, mirroring operations, and backup applications.
  3. Support for DLNA is provided to allow sharing of contents in compatible network consumer devices over the network.

Four Modes for Your Needs

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.
