Miglia Technology today announced the immediate availability of its MediaBank HS-R, an external hard drive case with hardware-based RAID 1 support and FireWire connectivity. MediaBank HS-R is a dual-bay case with built-in hardware, which mirrors data on both hard drives. All mirroring, synchronization and backup functions are performed automatically without the need for software or human intervention. Additionally, the drive can be swapped while the unit is running (hot-swap). It is made from solid aluminum, features the Oxford 911 ATA-to-FireWire bridge board, and ships without hard drives for US$479.
