“We designed our SureVAULT 800 with FireWire 800 to satisfy those customers
who need higher throughput RAID storage. This performance capability is

very large files, at the office, home or school,” said Robert Young, Kano’s
director of national sales. “Our goal is to provide the fastest, simplest
way to share protected data between desktops, networks and work groups.”
SureVAULT 800 is hot-pluggable and is immediately recognized by Mac OS X
and Windows XP, without the need for additional software. With FireWire
800, FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 connections, the SureVAULT 800 can work with
virtually any Mac or PC.

simultaneously. The system is portable and very easy to install. It uses
hot-swappable drive bays and provides RAID’s fast, secure and reliable
SureVAULT makes data recovery very easy. In case of drive failure,

automatically rebuilds the data while the user continues to access and
write files to SureVAULT.
