[prMac.com] Gavilan Hills, CA - Newt Data, a provider of unique data storage products, today announced a new 6TB model of the SwiftStore family of high-speed hard drives. The huge capacities of the newest SwiftStore model provide users of Apple iMac, MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac Pro computers with a better storage upgrade alternative than other external hard drives. They also support Microsoft Windows XP for PC users or Apple Boot Camp users running Windows on their Macs.
SwiftStore hard drives connect using Gigabit Ethernet ports to operate at faster speeds than hard drives that connect using USB or FireWire. They also use multiple hard drives to provide huge storage capacities. Plus, they offer other unique advantages over USB or FireWire hard drives.
With SwiftStore, you can choose whether to dedicate all storage capacity to a single computer by connecting to it directly or divide the storage capacity among multiple computers by connecting to them via a network router. With USB or FireWire, you need a separate hard drive for each computer that needs storage capacity resulting is wasted capacity.
SwiftStore features include:
* Faster speeds than USB 2.0 or FireWire 800 hard drives
