ZBOX RI531-P(B281)_Image09

Zotac releases the all new RAID-Capable ZBox Units

Zotac launched an all new ‘R Series’ ZBox series emphasizing on RAID setups. There are there variants as of now, ZBOX-RI531-P-BE priced at INR 34,999/-, ZBOX-RI531-BE priced at INR 26,999/- and ZBOX-RI323-BE which is priced at INR 14,999/-.

The difference the standard and the plus variant in RI531 is that the Plus variant comes with a 4GB DDR3L and a 64MB mSATA, but both units use Intel Core i3-5010U dual-core ‘Broadwell’ processor clocked at 2.1 GHz. The standard variant is a barebone device.

The RI323-BE is also a barebone device but with no mSATA slot and uses a dual-core Intel Celeron 2961Y ‘Haswell’ processor clocked at 1.1 GHz. In all the three models, there are dual 2.5″ SATA ports, therefore giving the option to have either RAID 0 or RAID 1 setup. As one will expect, these ZBoxes are made for commercial and industrial purposes, much like Intel NUC. It is an advantage to have dual SATA 6Gb/s connectors and an M.2 port on the upper two variants.

All the three variants have a SERIAL port. The unit is sold without operating system, but Zotac assured that these are Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 ready.
