"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

Promise VTrak E-Class 4x 1TB SATA RAID subsystem (4TB)The Promise VTrak RAID subsystem, equipped with four 1TB 7200-rpm SATA drives (4TB raw capacity), provides entry-level storage solution with a single RAID controller that can be field upgraded to dual active/active controllers.

The Promise VTrak E-Class RAID subsystem with four SATA drives delivers the performance, reliability, and upgradability for entry level direct attached server applications. Four 1TB 7200-rpm 3Gb/s SATA drives in a 3U rack-optimized enclosure provides 4TB of raw capacity and supports all the major RAID levels including hardware RAID 0, 1, 5, and 6. The modular design of the Promise VTrak E-Class RAID subsystem allows users to start with a small single RAID controller installation and upgrade to a fully redundant, expandable solution. Featuring two 4Gb Fibre Channel ports and 2GB of cache, redundant power supplies, and redundant cooling modules. Featuring an aluminum look that complements Apple hardware, the VTrak is qualified with Mac OS X, Mac OS X Server, Final Cut Studio 2, and Xsan 2.

You can start with a four-drive configuration and scale the RAID subsystem with the addition of a second controller, more SATA, high performance SAS drives and even J-Class expansion chassis as your requirements change.

With large VTrak deployments worldwide, enterprise users have come to rely on Promise Technology to protect their valuable data. Promise and Apple support the attachment of up to four J-Class expansion chassis, providing 80TB of raw capacity using 1TB SATA drives for high capacity storage applications like tiered storage, disk-to-disk backup or archive.
