About Dulce Systems

The 8TB PRO DQ xc Hard Drive Array from Dulce Systems is a Quad Channel SATA II hard drive array that is compatible with Mac and Windows computer systems. Included is a dedicated PCI Express x8 controller card, which allows you to configure the array as a RAID 0, 3, RAID 5, or RAID 6.

Each of the 8 enterprise-class drives in the array is a high-performance 7200rpm 3.5in SATA disk. When configured as a RAID 3 or 5, the PRO DQ xc is capable of sustained transfer rates of up to 690MB/sec. You can configure as a RAID 0 for 800MB/sec performance, or as a RAID 6 for enhanced data security at 580MB/sec. This allows you to work with multiple real-time streams of many different types of video, including ProRes HQ, DVCPRO HD, and HD 10-bit uncompressed.

Dulce Systems Features

  • RAID Protected: RAID 3, 5 or 6 protection schemes are the most cost-efficient approach to insuring workflow continuation
  • RAID Management GUI: A web browser accessed RAID Console provides quick and easy RAID management. The PRO DQ comes pre-configured for Mac OS X in RAID 5 protection mode, so it might not be necessary to access the RAID Console initially
  • Well Connected: The PRO DQ not only protects your data with the latest RAID options, it is also well connected to keep your data secured. The Quad Channel SATA II interface connectors used in the PRO DQ are made of metal construction and lock securely in place to prevent accidental removal
  • Tuck Away Handles: From time to time you might need to move the PRO DQ xc from one suite to another, or from studio to on-location. The built-in tuck away handles, located in the front and rear of the unit, allow for convenient mobility
  • All Metal Drive Tray: The PRO DQ xc is built with the all metal drive tray. As the result, the drives runs cool and provides for a more efficient cooling for the entire unit and it looks great with the collection of your high-end video gear
  • Unlimited Expansion: The PRO EX - a PCI-e Expansion Switch. It can support up to 7 PCI-e x8 compatible cards. Fill the PRO EX with several new PRO DQ or any combination of the Dulce's PCI-e based products or even a 3rd party RAID controller
