Klaas deVos, Vice President EMEA with WD said: â€œMiglia is an ideal partner for us as they constantly deliver world-class solutions to an ever demanding market place. Our Caviar Raid Edition drives are a perfect match for the Miglia DualDisk, they are cool, quiet and highly reliable, the stated MTTF (Mean Time To Failure) of 1.2 million hours is unrivalled in the industry.
Following last yearâ€™s successful launch of the Miglia DualDisk, Miglia has announced that the DualDisk has been given a makeover and redeveloped using Western Digital technology for more demanding use in todayâ€™s work and home environment. Still integrating two hard drives in a unique horizontal format, the ultra-slim aluminium enclosure combines vast amounts of storage space with data transfer rates peaking at 88 MB/sec. Thanks to its advanced DCSâ„¢ cooling system, the hard drives run at low temperatures at all times, thereby lengthening their lifespan and securing your data.
Available in capacities of 320GB, 500GB and 640GB and as an empty case, the Miglia DualDisk provides excellent secure expansion for both PC and Mac platforms. In addition DualDisk is now available using the ultimate quality WD Caviar â€˜Raid Editionâ€™ drives, these have 16MB of cache per device and an MTBF of 5 times a conventional Disc Drive.
