6TB + 6TB Guardian MAXimus with hardware RAID-1 (Mirrored), multiple interfaces, and massive capacity combines performance with the protection of real time data redundancy

Woodstock, IL — October 9, 2014 — Newer Technology, Inc. (NewerTech®), a leading developer of Macintosh, iPhone, iPad, iPod, and PC performance upgrades and accessories announced a new 6TB + 6TB capacity for the Guardian MAXimus line of dual-bay, high-performance external storage solutions.

High-Performance, Multiple Interfaces
The Guardian MAXimus, available in capacities up to 6TB + 6TB, adds tremendous storage capacity and throughput to any Mac or PC with USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire 800, or FireWire 400. It's the perfect external drive for mission critical data such as financial records, accounting data, medical files, business projects, and Time Machine backups with sustained data rates up to 238MB/s read, 245MB/s write.

Zero Downtime
The Guardian MAXimus is Plug and Play ready in RAID-1 mode, for "mirrored" data across two drives.

Once the failed drive is replaced, the new drive is automatically mirrored to restore data redundancy.

 With USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire 800 and FireWire 400, the Guardian MAXimus requires no complicated setup and comes Plug and Play ready-to-use with the latest Mac models, legacy Macs, and PCs.
