The great American writer, Henry David Thoreau, wrote about living a simple life in the woods, free from the burden of possessions and the time consumed with acquiring them.  He proselytized about the abandonment of materialism and the self-enrichment we can attain by doing so.  As appealing as his concepts might be, it is nothing short of draconian in today’s internet age, for we are not only busy with materialistic endeavors, we are also busy with acquiring information.  It is one thing to separate oneself from physical belongings, but it is another to be divorced from the wealthy stream of information we can tap into in a split second.  Like prospectors in the old west panning for gold down by the river, we mine the internet’s steady stream of data for information we can store and use. Download a song or two a day, maybe an audio book or a full length movie and, before we know it, our pans are full and we need to store it somewhere.  With affordable hard drive capacities now numbering in the terabytes, we can just keep on stockpiling the data we mine.

 

Understandably, Thoreau’s approach to self-enrichment might not be for everyone but, perhaps, if we start by simplifying how we do daily things, we will eventually grow to trivialize the necessity of acquiring those we don’t truly need.  Instead of looking at larger and larger storage solutions, we should look to storing only what we require.  Storage solutions which are compact but conveniently functional, like the Vantec MRK-525ST Dual Drive Bay Rack.

 

The Vantec NexStarSE MRK-525ST can fit two 2.5” drives inside a single 5.25” drive bay.  Using the universal mounting tray, the MRK-525ST is hot-swappable and compatible with other Vantec NexStarSE 2.5” products.  The MRK-525ST’s metal enclosure helps dissipate heat while the plastic body makes it lightweight and easy to transport.   The Vantec NexStarSE 525ST is for users who want a 2 x 2.5” to 5.25” drive rack that comes complete with all the cables and hardware necessary, making storage expansion solution simple and cost-effective.
