The crypto engine inside the Diamond Cipher enclosure handles all the encryption and decryption on the fly with no detectable performance degradation on data transfer. Using native eSATA interface, the Diamond Cipher ExDrive supports the highest performance possible today through an externally connected hard drive enclosure.Designed for accommodating any standard 3.5" SATA/SATA II hard drive, the Diamond Cipher ExDrive provides data transfer speeds approximately three times the maximum throughput of traditional drive enclosures utilizing the standard USB or FireWire interfaces. When connected via eSATA interface, drives contained inside the durable and heat resistant Diamond enclosures are even capable of booting operating systems through a compatible eSATA port on a motherboard or add-in card.When connected to host controllers with RAID capability, multiple Diamond Cipher ExDrives can be implemented with fault-tolerance and increased data throughput RAID configurations which can be easily relocated as external devices.
