CalDigit VR2 2-bay RAID (up to 10TB, USB 3.0, eSata, FW800/400)


Serious Storage. Simplified.
The CalDigit VR2 is the most complete two drive RAID system on the market today. It offers unmatched performance, impressive connectivity and superior quality all in a sleek and easily upgradeable enclosure that is both portable and functional.

Hardware RAID 0, 1 and JBOD with Quadruple Interface
The CalDigit VR2 features true hardware RAID, which provides an independent CPU and dedicated cache memory to manage the RAID volume. This dedicated processor eliminates additional strain from the host system's CPU, allowing applications full access.

- RAID 0 for maximum performance
- RAID 1 provides protection
- JBOD for separate disks without the need of a RAID

The quadruple interface supports USB 3.0, FireWire 400, FireWire 800 and eSATA, making the CalDigit VR2 extremely versatile. Two FireWire 800 ports make it easy to daisy chain multiple CalDigit VR2s together without any performance loss.

Modular Design
The CalDigit VR2 uses two hot-swappable drive modules, allowing easy replacement and expansion.

The sleek and sexy design is as functional as it is good looking. A front side power button makes powering the unit on and off a breeze, and the all aluminum enclosure is eco friendly and provides additional heat dissipation.

Fast & Safe
The CalDigit VR2 can reach speeds over 250 MB/s in RAID 0, and over 160 MB/s with RAID 1 protection. RAID 1 provides the ultimate in protection and backup for valuable data by mirroring data on both drives. If a drive fails, all data can be restored.

Cool & Quiet
The energy saving, ambient temperature-controlled smart fan runs only when the CalDigit VR2 needs it most. It runs extremely quiet, ensuring proper airflow and advanced cooling without compromise.

In addition, the CalDigit VR2 is designed with an all aluminum enclosure to assist with heat dissipation. The CalDigit VR2 takes advantage of the latest technology, ensuring both a cool and quiet experience.

Tapeless Workflow
Because the CalDigit VR2 supports both RAID 1 and JBOD, it's the perfect replacement for video tape. Use RAID 1 on set for an instant backup, then each drive module can be read individually with JBOD.

The CalDigit VR2 has two hot swappable drive modules, allowing for easy replacement and expansion. Extra drive modules come in handy archive boxes (not included with VR2). Drive modules from the original CalDigit VR are fully compatible with the VR2, and VR2 drive modules are backwards compatible in existing CalDigit VRs. So you'll never have to worry about interchanging your data.

Professional Grade
The CalDigit VR2 has been optimized for professional Audio and Video, making it the perfect companion for professional Audio and Video software. The CalDigit VR2 is powerful enough to work with high end applications, and extremely easy to use.

This prevents anyone from accidentally removing the VR2’s drive modules and adds extra piece-of-mind. The CalDigit VR2 includes a security lock as well as locking drive modules.

Visual Aid
The easy to read back lit LCD provides valuable data and added confidence that is just a glance away. Additionally, the LED status lights provide a visual representation of the CalDigit VR2's operation. It also allows configuration without being attached to a computer. As if that's not enough, an audible alert can also be set.
