High-Rely MPac-G2 Backup Drive Enclosure Over HDD

RENO, NV – 1 MARCH 2015 – Highly Reliable Systems, the innovative American-made server backup storage experts, have announced immediate availability of their new 2.5-inch MPac-G2 RAID backup media at the XChange Solution Provider event in Dallas, Texas. High-Rely’s portable second-generation MPac enclosure features an integrated RAID-0/1/JBOD controller with field-accessible SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0 Gb/s connections. The redesigned receiver bay showcases stronger jam-proof construction, and is rated for thousands of insert/eject cycles. MPac-G2 storage devices are now available as an upgrade option for all High-Rely NetSwap and BNAS server backup appliances.

Faster and more compact than a single 3.5″ desktop hard disk, tape or RDX, High-Rely’s MPac-G2 backup media is ideal for transporting data off-site or storing in a safe container. MPac-G2 drives are presently available in raw capacities up to 4TB per cartridge, enabling long-term data retention with half the physical size of other backup storage devices. Matching the portable nature of MPac drives with speeds well beyond single disk performance, this highly-removable media enables technicians to rapidly access data for disaster recovery and restore productivity with minimal downtime.

“Our latest MPac G2 media provides a very small footprint and can easily double the reliability and capacity of many 2.5” SSDs or HDDs by having an integrated RAID 0/1 controller in the cartridge itself” said Tom Hoops, Chief Technology Officer at Highly Reliable Systems. “MPac’s on-board USB 3.0 access provides speedy in-field and emergency access, while the SATA docking connector allows for high-speed cartridge style insertion and removal into the chassis. The MPac media enclosure is versatile, and can accommodate either one or two 2.5” drives each up to 12mm thick.”
