Newer Technology Expands Guardian MAXimus RAID 1 Desktop Storage Solution to 4.0TB

Posted by at 10:42 am on February 28, 2012

Newer Technology announced today it has expanded the storage capacity of its Guardian
MAXimus desktop storage solution line to 4.0TB. By utilizing two of the industry’s
only 3.5″ 4.0TB SATA 6Gb/s hard drive in a hardware RAID 1 (mirror) array, the
Guardian MAXimus storage solution delivers 33 percent more storage/backup capacity
per each of the installed drives over current 3.0TB hard drives. With up to a
“Quad Interface” of FireWire 800, FireWire 400, USB 3.0, and eSATA connections,
the Guardian MAXimus line offers Plug and Play data transfer speeds up to 300MB/s
with Mac and PC computers.

Real-Time Backup

Guardian MAXimus offers “live activity” backup of financial records, medical
files, business projects…any critical data a user cannot risk losing. It’s
always guarding against data loss by writing the same information in real-time
to two separate drives for a “mirrored” copy. Should the convenient front panel
status LEDs indicate a drive issue, the ever-vigilant Guardian MAXimus automatically
and seamlessly continues data read/write functions with the remaining drive.

Full Data Accessibility Eliminates Downtime

Unlike other RAID 1 backup solutions, the Guardian MAXimus allows full data accessibility
to protect users against costly system downtime. If a user experiences a drive
issue, the affected drive need only be replaced with the same type of drive while
the user continues to work and Guardian MAXimus automatically rebuilds the mirror
by writing the contents of the remaining original functional drive to the replacement

Highest Capacity, Lowest Environmental Impact

The new 4.0TB hard drives built into the Guardian MAXimus utilizes a halogen-free
design and power-efficient operation for up to a 28 percent idle power savings
per drive. The drives also use Advanced Format, which increases the sector size
from 512 bytes to 4096 (4K) bytes, thereby increasing capacities and improving
error correction capabilities.


Newer Technology has a storied history of providing a superior level of support
and warranty coverage. The new 4.0TB Guardian MAXimus storage solution comes
fully backed by free lifetime US-based 24/7 technical support and a three-year
warranty which includes a 48-hour repair turnaround time and three years of complimentary
Level 1 data recovery.
