TerraMaster has unveiled the all-new D5 Hybrid, which it claims to be the industry’s pioneering hybrid HDD NVMe SSD enclosure that can hold 2 SATA HDDs/SSDs and 3 M.2 2280 NVMe SSDs, boasting a total capacity of 22TB per drive and 8TB per M.2 SSD.
The D5 Hybrid hard drive enclosure utilizes the high-speed USB 3.2 Gen2 protocol to deliver data transmission speeds of up to 10Gbps. In RAID 0 configuration with 2 hard drives, the read/write speed achieves up to 521MB/s (using SATA III NAS HDD 8TB x 2).
When configured with 2 SSDs in RAID 0, the read speed can reach 960MB/s (with SATA III NAS SSD 1TB x 2), while NVMe M.2 SSDs can achieve speeds of up to 980MB/s.
It also incorporates the brand’s exclusive 2+3 RAID array mode, allowing users to configure RAID 0, RAID 1, JBOD, or Single Disk for diverse cold data storage needs across various applications. Plus, the three NVMe M.2 SSD slots are dedicated single-disk mode, making them well-suited for storing frequently accessed hot data and ensuring quick transfer speeds.
In terms of connectivity, the D5 Hybrid packs a versatile range of interfaces including USB Type-C, USB 3.0, USB 3.1, USB 3.2, USB4, Thunderbolt 3, and Thunderbolt 4. This interface compatibility extends to Windows 7 and later, macOS X 10.6 and later, as well as Linux Ubuntu 16/18/20.
TerraMaster’s free TPC Backupper also enables users to easily schedule Windows PC backups of folders or disk partitions to TerraMaster USB HDD storage or NAS servers. It supports both incremental and differential backup strategies and is compatible with Windows 8/8.1/10/11.
Design-wise, the D5 Hybrid features a tool-less Push-Lock hard drive tray design as well as a convenient side-sliding cover and hand-tightening screws that makes hard drives and M.2 SSD installation super easy.
Not only that, but it also supports hard drive sleep mode to synchronize with the computer system sleep mode to effectively reduce the working time of the hard drive, resulting in lesser power consumption and a longer lifespan of the hard drive.
