Hot Plug Perfect for Sneaker Networking

Physical transport of your data between workstations is easily accomplished. Simply turn-off the S2VR, remove the eSATA cable from your computer, go to the new location, plug in the cable and turn the S2VR back on. This can be done without turning-off or rebooting your operating system.

Frees up FireWire Ports Perfect for Video Professionals

In most PC's or Mac's, without the addition of a PCI or PCIMCA card, the FireWire ports share the same bus and split the bandwidth between all connected peripherals. The S2VR utilizes the SATA 3Gb/s port on the FASTA adapter freeing up the FireWire ports allowing connection of other peripherals such as the AJA Io LA, LD, DV Camcorders, etc to have the full bandwidth.

For video professionals

Modular Design

The S2VR's drives, fan and power supply are designed to be swappable. Our modular design allows the fan and drives, which can potentially fail, to be easily and quickly hot swapped reducing downtime on time-critical projects.
