Announcing SoftRAID version 5.6.3
OWC Holdings, Inc. announces the release of SoftRAID version 5.6.3, an update and bug fix release, which makes SoftRAID compatible with macOS 10.13 High Sierra.
Primary Features of SoftRAID 5.6.3
SoftRAID is actively supported and improved
At SoftRAID, we don’t believe that software should be shipped and then forgotten. We are constantly refining and improving our product, because we love what we do and want it to be the best it can possibly be!
SoftRAID: invaluable features at a great price
SoftRAID 5.6.3 features a highly optimized driver, which provides a software RAID solution that equals, and can often exceed, the performance and reliability of dedicated hardware RAID controllers. In addition, users can also take advantage of SoftRAID’s advanced disk testing, logging and disk health monitoring. SoftRAID’s unique disk failure prediction provides advanced warning of potential disk problems, protecting users from catastrophic data loss that can occur when a disk suddenly fails.
At just $179 the full version of SoftRAID supports 5 RAID levels (0, 1, 4, 5 & 1+0), plus email notification of potential disk failure and command line support.
For $49, users can purchase SoftRAID Lite and create RAID 0 and RAID 1 volumes, or convert their AppleRAID volumes to SoftRAID.
Both versions use exactly the same great driver, provide the same disk testing and health monitoring, and are localized for French, German, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.
Great customer support
SoftRAID has some of the best tech support in the industry. We know our users don’t just work 9–5 on weekdays, so our tech support team is available to help them on nights and weekends, ready to get to the bottom of each and every customer problem. Don’t just take our word for it, visit our web site and see what customers say about SoftRAID: https://softraid.com/pages/reviews/customers_comments.html
SoftRAID 5 requires an Intel based running Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later. Support for TRIM commands on SSDs requires 10.7.5 or later.
