RAID Storage On The Go.
The CalDigit VR mini 2 expands on the incredibly popular original VR mini from CalDigit, that revolutionized portable RAID protection for in-the-field data back up. Now offering the added benefit of USB 3.0 connectivity, the VR mini 2 is a versatile storage solution for professional use.
The VR mini 2 builds on the concept that no data is truly protected unless it is backed up twice. Featuring RAID 0, 1, and JBOD modes, the VR mini 2 is an eloquently versatile 100% hardware RAID device that can give you either performance, or protection. Other RAID devices on the market are either a RAID 0 or a RAID 1 device. The VR mini 2 gives you the best of both worlds. If you want outstanding performance, set the VR mini 2 to RAID 0, and take advantage of the fast transfer speeds. If you want to give your data the ultimate security it deserves, set the VR mini 2 to RAID 1, and your files are automatically backed up to both drives.
The one feature that makes the VR mini 2 a truly great portable RAID solution is it’s ability to be bus powered whilst at the same time giving you the ultimate in hardware RAID protection. No longer do you have to go looking for power sources to run your external storage solutions. The VR mini 2 gets its power directly from the Firewire 800 interface cable. However, we still include a power adapter in the box should you need to plug it into the mains!
