500GB RAID Drive by Candy Goes Wireless


Bah! Who needs wires? That’s what Candy — yes, that’s actually the company’s name — when they created their wireless RAID drive. Measuring about the size of a regular desktop computer tower, the Candy RAID drive supports RAID 0, 1, 0+1 and JBOD.

Oh, and in case you don’t know what RAID stands for, it’s “Redundant Array of Independent (or Inexpensive) Disks.” These mass storage solutions are largely, no pun intended, for servers and backups. This particular RAID set up will take on hard drives of various sizes, ranging from 200GB on the low-end, right up to half a terabyte on the high-end. Interface is via USB 2.0 and SATA.

The strange thing is that while this Candy RAID drive is wireless, they didn’t specify what kind of wireless it is. I’m guessing WiFi, but I could be wrong.
