This robust support ensures you can leverage the speed and efficiency of SATA 6G, significantly enhancing your system's overall data transfer rates and performance. Furthermore, the iR2023 supports RAID 0 and RAID 1 configurations. With RAID 0, also known as striping, you can enjoy increased data throughput by spreading data across multiple drives. Conversely, RAID 1, known as mirroring, duplicates your data across two drives, providing an immediate backup and ensuring data integrity and reliability. The comprehensive support for both these RAID configurations, combined with SATA 6G compatibility, make the iR2023 a highly adaptable and powerful storage solution that caters to a broad spectrum of user needs.


Independent SATA JBOD SSD Bay & RAID Storage Capabilities


The iR2023 stands out with its extensive storage configuration, offering an independent SATA port for the JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) SSD drive bay, alongside the convenience of RAID storage. This advanced feature provides an unparalleled level of flexibility in managing your storage needs. With the independent SATA port, each SSD drive in the JBOD setup can be individually accessed and controlled, allowing users to fully utilize each drive's capacity and manage large amounts of data with ease. Coupled with this, the RAID storage configuration enhances data redundancy and performance, offering both protection against data loss and improved data retrieval speed. This dual approach to storage, combining the versatility of JBOD with the robustness of RAID, ensures the iR2023 can adapt to a wide range of storage requirements, providing users with a comprehensive and efficient data management solution.

RAID Configuration Displayed via LCD Status Screen


The iR2023 comes equipped with a state-of-the-art LCD status screen that dynamically displays your RAID configuration settings. This user-friendly feature allows you to have an at-a-glance view of your storage arrangement, providing real-time updates on your RAID settings and data management status. The clear and concise display ensures that you can quickly understand and manage your system's performance and storage parameters, effectively reducing the complexity of data management. The LCD screen also makes it easy to adjust your RAID configurations, allowing for a seamless transition between different storage preferences. With the iR2023's LCD status screen, staying informed and in control of your storage system has never been more straightforward.


LED Light indicators


The iR2023 features a separate LED display for each SSD or hard disk, presenting data access status or the condition of the SSD or hard disk concisely. This allows users to stay informed about the overall status of the iR2023 at any time.


Easy access RAID mode switch


The iR2023 is a storage solution that combines versatility, performance, and reliability in a sleek design. You can easily change RAID modes with a simple switch on the front panel, making storage management hassle-free. This device will transform how you handle your data.

STATUSGuide GUI and drive S.M.A.R.T monitoring


The iR2023 Internal RAID Device offers windows base RAIDON STATUSGuide Graphic User Interface (GUI). This user-friendly platform simplifies RAID monitoring, and management, making it an accessible and efficient tool even for those not experienced with RAID configurations.

Additionally, the iR2023 supports Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) for drives. This technology enables the real-time tracking of key indicators of drive reliability. With S.M.A.R.T., potential drive failures can be anticipated and prevented, providing an added layer of data security and peace of mind.

Hot-swappable and plug-and-play for easy replacement of drives


The iR2023 is ingeniously designed with hot-swappable and plug-and-play functionality, ensuring seamless and effortless drive replacement. The hot-swappable feature allows you to replace or upgrade your drives without having to power down your system, thus minimizing downtime and improving efficiency. This is a crucial feature for business environments where uninterrupted operations are critical. The plug-and-play capability further enhances the user experience by enabling immediate recognition and operation of the new drive, eliminating the need for complex setup procedures or software installation. These features combined make the iR2023 a highly user-friendly storage solution, offering convenience and simplicity in drive management while maintaining high performance and reliability.


Metal Drive Tray with Key lock


Metal Drive Tray with KeyLock protection is a secure solution for safeguarding your valuable data. This sturdy metal tray is designed to hold your hard drives or SSDs securely. With its KeyLock feature, you can lock the tray with a key to prevent unauthorized access. Upgrade your storage system with this essential accessory for enhanced data security.

Optimal heat management with MCU controlled silent fan


The iR2023 incorporates a Microcontroller Unit (MCU) controlled heat dissipation system. The MCU intelligently operates a 4-cm silent fan to maintain optimal temperature for your drives, extending their lifespan and ensuring consistent performance.

Overheat alarm buzzer


The iR2023 Compact RAID Enclosure is built with an intelligent overheat alarm buzzer to ensure the safety and longevity of your drives. This advanced feature continuously monitors the temperature of your storage devices. In the event of a significant rise in temperature that surpasses the safe operating limit, the alarm buzzer will sound, alerting users to potential overheating issues. This immediate auditory alert allows for swift corrective action, which could involve ramping up the cooling system or shutting down to prevent any potential damage. The inclusion of this overheat alarm buzzer is a testament to iR2023's commitment to proactive protection of your valuable data and hardware.
