Data-center software on your desktop

Using RAID to store and manage data offers unparalleled performance and data security. OWC SoftRAID protects your life’s work with redundant storage options and disk failure monitoring. SoftRAID from OWC delivers the best of safety and speed, far outperforming hardware-only solutions.

The best of access speeds and data safety with countless disk configurations is a game-changer. With the ease of creating RAID volumes, the flexibility to use multiple enclosures and the foresight to prevent disk failure, SoftRAID helps you manage your data like a pro at a fraction of the cost.

  • Create and/or delete raid volumes easily

  • New disk? Test it first with certify

  • Check your data or volume at any time

  • Five raid levels for all uses

    • RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, 1+0 (10)



  • 24/7 Disk failure warning via email


When it comes to protection, SoftRAID stays steps ahead of data loss. SoftRAID checks new disks before you use them, warns you when a disk is about to fail, and keeps working after a disk fails.

If speed is what you’re after, SoftRAID leads the race. SoftRAID enables the use of up to 16 disks in a single volume or the ability to spread volumes over two or more enclosures for unprecedented speeds.

For optimal speed and safety, SoftRAID is in a class by itself.

SoftRAID checks new disks before you use them. New disk? SoftRAID's certify feature will tell you if your disk is bad, before you save precious data to it—protecting you against using a disk that is faulty or about to fail.

Always on and never in the way.  SoftRAID Monitor runs scans in the background—even when you're not logged in—making it ideal for use on servers. And when you're logged in and working, it uses a minimum of CPU power, so you won't even notice it's there.

Keep working after a disk fails. If you use a SoftRAID mirror (RAID 1), RAID 4, RAID 5 or RAID 1+0 volume, your work is protected against disk failure. Even if one of your disks fails, you can keep right on working and make your deadline. None of your files will be lost. How great is that?

 

SoftRAID supports five levels of RAID optimized for speed, safety, or both. Any SoftRAID volume can have up to 16 disks.

  • RAID 0 – Stripes

    • Fastest



  • RAID 1 – Mirrors

    • Safest RAID



  • RAID 4 – Dedicated Parity

    • Fast and safe



  • RAID 5 – Distributed Parity

    • Fast and safe



  • RAID 1+0 (10) – Stripes + Mirrors

    • Fastest and safest
