This is a plan for such a thing that I made up, but I did not try it out actually.

The best alternative that I could come up with up to now is to combine:

Variations of this:

  • Instead of the Addonics device, there is also the “DIY SSD SATA array” which can accomodate even 4 CF cards, allowing redundant RAID5. It is unclear where to buy this, though.
  • If you are crazy, you could even add a third level of RAID to the system by combining four of these SATA disks (as proposed above) into one Compact RAID tower.

And as an alternative design, one could use the 10-port USB hub with flash drive RAID combined with very small USB flash drives, of the type that protrude only ca. 5 mm out of teh USB port.
