Manufacturer's product description
PCI Express-enabled desktop computers can take full advantage of SATA speed and PCI Express efficiency with the Manhattan SATA 3 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 3 Gb/s RAID PCI Express Card supports SATA 3 Gbps and RAID 5 data transfer rates. The RAID scheme allows for greater flexibility when using multiple hard drives to share or replicate data. Users can configure the Manhattan SATA 3 Gb/s RAID PCI Express Card for stability, speed or a single large drive. The Manhattan SATA 3 Gb/s RAID PCI Express Card supports RAID 5 for the highest read data transaction rate. JBOD support combines all drives into a single "virtual" disk drive. RAID 0 (striping) helps to 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. RAID 0+1 (mirrored-striping) combines both to provide performance enhancements and the data availability and integrity benefits.
