RAID is very popular among those looking for the fastest possible, the most reliable possible, or both when in comes to their storage solution, but not everyone has the chassis space to pack 4+ drives for their RAID6, or just the two required for RAID0 and 1. That’s when you turn to a RAID box. RAID boxes allow for external RAID control for professional situations that need many drives for speed or redundancy, or both. They come in many sizes and many budget ranges, and are perfect for those that don’t want their main drive to be on RAID. Today, we have the AXUS FiT 500E RAID subsystem. This mid-sized enclosure offers 5 drive bays and easy RAID configuration through it’s rotary switch and LCD screen. We’ll play with the AXUS FiT 500 after the break, but first, here is some information about AXUS and the FiT 500.
