Iwill's IDE RAID Motherboard - Iwill's IDE RAID Motherboard

Iwill's Award-Winning IDE RAID Motherboard Doubles Storage Performance and Capacity Irvine, CA May 8, 2000 -- Iwill USA Corporation has announced the arrival of VD133ProT, the award-winning hardware-enabled IDE RAID motherboard designed for long-term upgrade ability through doubling the performance and storage capacity of Ultra ATA66 hard drives (Fujitsu, IBM, Maxtor, Quantum, Seagate, and Western Digital). After having recently chosen "Best of Test" in Germany's PC Direkt, the VD133ProT is expected to generate interest in the U.S. as IDE RAID continues to gain popularity. Providing a performance similar to SCSI RAID, the on-board IDE RAID of the VD133ProT provides better speed and stability compared to software-based RAID solutions, and offers an incredible user-friendly installation procedure. With the VD133ProT, Iwill delivers an easy and affordable IDE RAID solution maximizing low-cost ATA-66 drives on PC Desktop, Workstation, and Server systems. The VD133 ProT is a Socket 370 architecture, ATX form factor motherboard that uses VIA Apollo Pro 133A (694X+686A) AGP set core logic and supports 133MHz bus speed with over-clocking capability up to 150MHz. The VD133 ProT supports the latest Intel Pentium III FC-PGA Coppermine, Celeron PPGA and Cyrix Socket370 processors up to 800 MHz and higher. The VD133ProT has two Ultra DMA/66 connectors supporting IDE RAID 0, 1, and 0+1 functions, plus two regular Ultra DMA/66 IDE connectors-totaling four IDE connectors-allowing connectivity of up to a maximum eight IDE devices. Each embedded IDE RAID connector links high capacity drives as a single "virtual" drive with one single partition on the system. The RAID 0 striping function increases the speed of your storage capacity by spreading data over two or more drives, and is excellent for video production, image editing, computer animation, and for gamers who require better performance for their hard drives. The RAID 1 mirroring function provides data protection through duplication onto a second paired drive, and is an excellent solution for systems using software in accounting, finance, medical, legal, retail, and restaurants. RAID 0+1 works with four drives only, and provides hardware protection through fault tolerance-that is, if one system fails, the duplicate system can take over. Iwill has also released the VD133 PLT or "Pro Lite" motherboard which is nearly identical to the VD133 ProT except that the "Pro Lite" motherboard has removed the additional two IDE RAID connectors, and supports only two on-board Ultra DMA/66 connectors. The VD133 PLT is a Socket 370, ATX form factor motherboard that uses VIA Apollo Pro 133A (694X+686A) AGP set core logic and supports 133MHz bus speed with over-clocking capability up to 150MHz. Both the VD133 ProT and VD133 PLT also support the latest software such as Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0, and Windows 9x, and is available with a 2-year limited warranty, with full benefit of Iwill's technical support and customer service team.
