Fastest

The new PRO DQ is the fastest RAID protected storage you can have, faster than anyone in it’s class. 

The proven RAID engine of our original controller used in the Quad and Duo Quad series had been retuned to provide more horsepower than ever. Fully populated with 8 high performance 1TB 3.5” 7200 RPM SATA disk drives, running in RAID 3 or 5 protected mode, the PRO DQ can pump out over 570 MB/s sustained. Want to run faster? Configure the RAID engine to RAID 0 mode and the PRO DQ will scream at over 660 MB/s.

In the double protection RAID 6 mode the PRO DQ at 460MB/s will out run other lesser protected RAID storage.

RAID Protected

The truth is, disk drives will fail, and they will fail at just the worst time. Don’t give it a chance to ruin your day. RAID 3, 5 or 6 protection schemes are the most cost-efficient approach to insuring workflow continuation. Should a drive fail during your last render before your final tape out, don’t sweat it, the hardware RAID protection will keep your workflow going even with one or more drives down.

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. But, should you want to change the configuration or manage the disk drives, you are just a couple of clicks away from the RAID Console.

We are well Connected

The PRO DQ not only protects your data with the latest RAID options, we are 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 locks securely in place to prevent accidental removal.

A well connected machine works more reliably.

 

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!

The PRO EX can be daisy chained to provide a virtually unlimited storage expansion setup.

Fast is good, RAID protection is better, and a sweet price on top of that - it is now perfect. Using the most cost-effective technology Dulce Systems offers a complete turnkey storage solution for the video and creation professionals. Everything is supplied to connect to your editing computer.
