Whether you use a Mac or a PC for audio recording, a Firewire connected disk drive can solve all your audio storage needs. Miglia Technology, a leading manufacturer of video, audio and storage products for Mac and Windows, today announced its partnership with Western Digital and the launch of Miglia DualDisk with WD’s disk drives.
Eric Ferraz, Director of Product Management at Miglia said “Miglia have decided to use exclusively Western Digital drives as they provide the most robust and reliable solution for end users. Our faith in WD’s solutions based on low heat and high MTTF means that we are able to offer a 5 year RTB warranty pre-configured DualDisk’s, a unique offering in this market.�
Klaas deVos, Vice President EMEA with WD said: “Miglia 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 year’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 today’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 DCS™ cooling system, the hard drives run at low temperatures at all times, thereby lengthening their lifespan and securing your data.
