WBATA525Q -R1 is a ATA to ATA RAID 1 sub-system without bridge board.
WBATA525Q -R1 is a reliable and cost effective solution for RAID 1 disk mirroring.
By mirroring technique, WBATA525Q -R1 maintains data in two disk drivers simultaneously and securely.
If one drive fails, WBATA525Q -R1 automatically switches operations to the functional drive and alarms to alert the failure.
WBATA525Q -R1 takes full advantage of high-speed Ultra DMA 133 ATA Bus allowing for multitasking performance.
You can install different bridge boards with WBATA525Q -R1 to have different I/O interface (such as USB 2.0/ FireWire (1394) / Serial ATA/ Lan). WBATA525Q -R1 allows users to easily hot-swap hard disk drive without interrupting the current operation.
WBATA525Q -R1 provides the perfect solution for data backup and transferring of data between computers using ATA/SATA HDDs.


Peripheral vendors using the WBATA525Q -R1 now have an immediate and no-risk solutions for adding USB 2.0/ FireWire (1394) / Serial ATA/ Lan
interface to their product lines.
WBATA525Q -R1 allows peripheral vendors a unique opportunity to continue to take advantage of the ATA/SATA economies of scale while
presenting RAID 1 sub-system into the rapidly expanding storage markets.
End users using the different bridge boards now have a flexible and no-risk solutions for changing the I/O interface to their computer.
