BB-FWBEIDE525Q-R5 IEEE1394b to IDE 5.25" Enclosure
(Hardware RAID 5)



Enhance FireIDE



FWBEIDE525Q-R5 takes full advantage of high-speed 1394 serial bus and Ultra DMA 133 ATA Bus allowing for multi-user and multitasking performance. FWBEIDE525Q-R5 delivers the performance required for servers and I/O demanding applications such as Video-On-Demand, database servers, workstations, high-end desktops, and image systems.  FWBEIDE525Q-R5 allows users to easily hot-swap ATA drive without interrupting the current operation.
FWBEIDE525D-R5 combines three key components:

  1. FireWire800 (IEEE 1394b) to ATA Bridge Board
  2. IDE-RAID-IDE Subsystem Hardware RAID 5 Controller
  3. Quadra 5.25" Bays Enclosure
