Data-center software on your desktop
Using RAID to store and manage data offers unparalleled performance and data security. OWC SoftRAID protects your life’s work with redundant storage options and disk failure monitoring. SoftRAID from OWC delivers the best of safety and speed, far outperforming hardware-only solutions.
EVOLVE YOUR WORKFLOW
The best of access speeds and data safety with countless disk configurations is a game-changer. With the ease of creating RAID volumes, the flexibility to use multiple enclosures and the foresight to prevent disk failure, SoftRAID helps you manage your data like a pro at a fraction of the cost.
- Create and/or delete raid volumes easily
- New disk? Test it first with certify
- Check your data or volume at any time
- RAID 0, 1
SAFETY, SPEED OR THE BEST OF BOTH?
When it comes to protection, SoftRAID stays steps ahead of data loss. SoftRAID checks new disks before you use them, warns you when a disk is about to fail, and keeps working after a disk fails.
If speed is what you’re after, SoftRAID leads the race. SoftRAID enables the use of up to 16 disks in a single volume or the ability to spread volumes over two or more enclosures for unprecedented speeds.
For optimal speed and safety, SoftRAID is in a class by itself.
What type of disks do SoftRAID and SoftRAID Lite work with?
You can use any disk which you attach directly to your Mac. This includes:
- Thunderbolt disks
- Internal and external SATA disks
- SSDs (Solid State Disks)
- Fibre Channel and SAS disks
- USB 2 and USB 3 disks
- FireWire disks
- USB flash drives (yes, even those!)
SoftRAID will run on any Mac built after 2007 which is running Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later. (TRIM support for SSDs requires Mac OS X 10.7.5 or later.) Unlike many applications, SoftRAID has modest requirements for system memory and disk space.
You can use any disk which you attach directly to your Mac.
