The G-Technology G|RAID comes with a dual removable drive RAID storage configuration to provide data redundancy, data protection, and to increase performance speed and capacity. The G|RAID hard drive supports RAID 0, RAID 1, and JBOD.

 

Dual Thunderbolt 3 ports allow you to daisy chain up to 6 devices in order to stay connected without running out of ports. Thunderbolt 3 connection also allows for faster speeds while editing and transferring files.

What RAID should I choose to optimize my workflow?

What RAID should I choose to optimize my workflow?

 

RAID 0:

A RAID 0 or a striped setup distributes different parts of an individual piece of data into two drives, usually used by editors for optimal speed and performance. If your drive is configured to RAID 0 and one drive fails, all data will be lost as individual pieces are distributed among both drives. The G-Technology       G|RAID comes set up in a RAID 0 default.

RAID 1:

RAID 1 or a mirroring configuration allows for maximum backup protection but sacrifices half a drives capacity. All data in the drive is distributed and copied twice. So if you have a 8TB G| RAID you realistically have 4TB of storage capacity because all your data is being copied redundantly. In this configuration if one drive failed all data in the bad drive will be lost but all data in the good drive will remain intact.

JBOD:

The JBOD drive setting stands for "just a bunch of drives" this setting refers to not having your drive set on a raid array. In a JBOD configuration the drive is one single volume but it's being split into smaller logical volumes, chopping the data up. This configuration is mainly recommended if you are transferring files from your main hard drive onto your computer.
