Guaranteed Performance

Real-world performance within an application is the most important factor to consider when purchasing a RAID system. While benchmark numbers can be used to quantify the raw read/write performance of a storage system, they do not translate in to real-world performance. G-RAID mini is guaranteed to support the simultaneous playback of multiple layers of video in real-time in Final Cut Pro, Premiere and Xpress Pro.
