Add Up To 20TB Of Desktop Storage
In addition to supporting any standard single or dual eSATA interface equipped storage solution, the NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G PCIe 2.0 RAID Controller Card also supports port multiplier enclosures. Now Mac Pro or PC users with machines offering an open PCIe slot can connect up to 10 drives (up to 5 per eSATA channel via industry standard Port Multiplier Enclosure solution) for a total of up to 20TB of desktop storage in a RAID 0 array for maximum capacity and speed or in a redundant RAID array such as RAID 1, 5, and 10 for the highest levels of data protection.
Convenient Utility For Easy RAID Management
The NewerTech RAID Web Management Utility is web browser-based application that offers a convenient and easy method for setting up RAID arrays, managing connected drives, checking storage health status, and analyzing information about the connected storage devices. There's even a built-in scheduling system to run background rebuilds, verifications, integrity, and health checks to the attached arrays and drives. This value added utility can be accessed whenever needed via popular web browsers like Safari, Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer and can be configured to send e-mail notifications and alerts should a problem arise.
S.M.A.R.T Drive Monitoring
Complimenting the NewerTech RAID Web Management Utility is Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) for monitoring drive operation characteristics. Functioning like a hard disk drive "early warning system", S.M.A.R.T. warns of potential problems so users can take proactive action before catastrophic failure and/or data loss can occur.
"This is the easiest and most affordable solution on the market today for adding massive amounts of storage with the fastest data transfer rates possible to a Mac Pro or PC," said Larry O'Connor, President, NewerTech. "Then add in the operational convenience and peace of mind our RAID management and drive monitoring software utility offers and the result is a complete performance upgrade package."
Adds Faster Than Factory Interface To Mac Pros
From faster backups and file transfers to high-end Audio/Video editing, connecting an eSATA interface equipped device to the NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G PCIe 2.0 RAID Controller Card can take data transfer performance to an entirely new level. Optimally compatible with Mac Pro models and PCs with an available PCIe 2.0 slot, the NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G PCIe 2.0 RAID Controller Card works with any eSATA interfaced equipped external hard drive or optical drive to deliver significantly faster data transfer rates over the fastest factory equipped Mac Pro interface of FireWire 800.
Future Ready Yet Fully Backward Compatible
The NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G PCIe 2.0 RAID Controller Card is like a "performance assurance policy" as conventional hard disk drives and Solid State Drives migrate to the SATA 6Gb/s standard. Installing the card now offers immediate speeds gains while preparing a Mac Pro or PC for even greater future speed gains. While taking advantage of emerging technology, the NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G PCIe 2.0 RAID Controller Card is also fully backward compatible with PCIe 1.0 slots as well as previous generations of SATA 1.5Gb/s and 3Gb/s drives.
