RAID in the Size of a Single 2.5″ Hard Drive — Sans Digital Compact Flash

City of Industry, CA — May 23, 2008 — Sans Digital, a leading brand name
of high performance storage subsystems, is expanding its Storage Gadget
lines by introducing a new concept to the storage market: Compact Flash
(CF) enclosures. The CompactSTOR CS1T and CompactRAID CR2T convert the
widely popular Compact Flash card to a single 2.5″ SATA hard drive storage
device. The CS1T houses one Compact Flash card, while the CR2T supports
spanning and RAID 1 (mirroring) by housing up to two Compact Flash cards.

Unlike existing RAID units that employs hard drives for storage space, the
CS1T / CR2T utilizes pocket-sized lightweight Compact Flash cards as
storage memory for data safekeeping. Designed with the same size and
connectors as a 2.5″ SATA hard drive, both units are compatible with the
hard drive slot of laptops, industrial PCs (IPC), small form factor
computers, and 2.5″ hard drive enclosures. By utilizing Compact Flash cards
as storage, both CS1T and CR2T embrace the same benefits as Solid State
Disks (SSD), including less power consumption, minimized heat generation,
shock prevention, and noiseless operation. The user is able to benefit from
the features of a Solid State Disk at a fraction of the cost while using
the CS1T or CR2T.

The installed Compact Flash cards and hardware components within the units
are concealed by dust-free covers to prevent dirt and static buildup. The
CS1T supports the latest Compact Flash capacity, while the CR2T doubles
that capacity by operating two cards in spanning mode. “The CS1T and CR2T
makes data backup and protection possible in a restricted environment,”
states Grandy Chen, President of Sans Digital. “The units are designed
using standard 2.5″ hard drive connectors, making instant upgrades possible
by providing mirroring in laptops and IPC computers, where only a single
2.5″ hard drive could be installed.” For more details on CS1T and CR2T,
