PCI Express-enabled desktop computers can take full advantage of SATA speed and PCI Express efficiency with the MANHATTAN SATA 6 Gb/s RAID PCI Express Card. Easily installed, it adds dual external SATA ports to connect data storage and other SATA peripheral devices.
For fast data transfer, the MANHATTAN SATA 6 Gb/s RAID PCI Express Card includes SATA 6 Gbps data transfer rates and RAID support. The MANHATTAN SATA 6 Gb/s RAID PCI Express Card with RAID 0 (striping) helps increase the performance of data transfer by simultaneously writing data to multiple drives. RAID 1 (mirroring) reduces loss risks from disk failure by writing identical data on two drives. Using 48-bit LBA, it breaks the size limit of 137 GB hard drives to support larger storage devices. Compliance with PCI Express 2.0 and serial ATA 1.0 specifications ensures that most PCI Express Card-equipped notebook computers and connected SATA devices can operate at peak performance. The MANHATTAN eSATA 6 Gb/s RAID PCI Express Card fits PCI Express x1, x2, x4, x8 and x16 lane buses to enable a quick and easy installation, and supports safe hot-swappable functionality. A low-profile bracket is also included to facilitate installation and bring high-performance computing to almost any desktop solution.
