May 18, 2007 Data backup and uninterrupted data access becomes quicker, easier and more convenient every day. Now, RAID 1 level backup has become affordable and simple enough to attract the home or small business user. Newertech's latest release, the Guardian MAXimus, is a consumer-priced plug-and-play RAID 1 level backup system that can ensure uninterruped full data accessibility in the event of hard drive failures. Simple to use, it plugs into a FireWire 400, FireWire 800 or USB2 connection and "mirrors" vital data - updates are written simultaneously to the Guardian at the same time as they're written to the primary hard disk.

The system is available in a range of 5 7200RPM storage capacities from 250GB to 1 Terabyte, with pricing starting at US$319.99 MSRP. Software bundled with the package includes ProSoft Engineering's Data Backup 3, NovaStor's NovaBACKUP, and Intech's SpeedTools Utilities software.
