After refreshing its product line and refining its image in 2010, Glyph Production
Technologies, known for its pro-quality storage devices, has shipped the
Triplicator, its first new product. The next round of Triplicators began shipping in
Triplicator is an appliance designed to make multiple, simultaneous copies of
a data set. Designed to be an easy-to-use, time-saving tool, Triplicator allows for
connecting two or three target hard drives via eSATA device ports and then connecting
to a host computer via FireWire 800, USB
or eSATA. Power on the drives and the Triplicator
and an LED tells users how many drives are
attached. Then they can copy the data to the multiple
target drives, which the Triplicator presents
as one drive. When the copy is finished, identical
data will be present on the target drives, without
the user having to do separate copies. The drives
are ready to be used as individual originals for
editing, backup and archiving.
The second-generation version will feature the
ability to mount existing drive sets after the
unit has been repowered, a requested feature.
Additionally, the “Initialize Drives” button will
move to the front panel for easier access when
the unit is rackmounted.
