Multi Drive Hard Drive Towers
Expand your computer storage capability with multi-drive, hard-drive towersSimply put, a drive tower is an enclosure built to store computer drives. Mostly, these are hard disk drives, though they can be CD or DVD drives or other types of drives as well.
In addition to mounting hardware, a drive tower typically contains a power supply, cooling fan and connecting cables, so you can insert a drive right out of the box it came in.
Benefits of multi-drive storage devices include:
1. Multi-drive, hard-drive towers use less power than individual hard drives;
2. You can expand the drives, since most of them operate when only some of the bays are full, allowing you to add drives as you have need;
3. And the drives offer an inexpensive and easy backup solution.
Get more room for your computer data with multi-drive storage devices
Store and backup more data with hard drive towersSome people call multi-drive, hard-drive towers RAID towers, which stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks. This sometimes means the drives write the same data to more than one drive to guard against failure of a single drive. Hard-drive towers can often support several types of hard-disk technology, though many people prefer Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) drives, since they are faster and you can remove or add to the drive when the network is running.
Put your network storage in one place with a multi-drive storage deviceLarger corporate networks need devices with room for more hard drives and other options that support the large amount of power consumption and cooling needs these larger quantities of hard drives require.
Quickly produce CDs and DVDs with duplication towersDuplication towers are able to copy several CDs or DVDs at one time, because they contain several CD or DVD burner drives. Some of these devices grow as your needs grow, allowing you to add more drives into open bays as you need them.
- Multi-drive hard drives can serve as one kind of backup to guard your data, but should not be your only backup. In case of flood, fire or theft, all of your data can be lost if you don't also have an off-site backup option.
