The CalDigit RAID Card is 100% hardware RAID. Unlike software RAID
solutions, the CalDigit RAID Card had a dedicated Intel XScale processor
and 256MB of cache on board. This frees up the host CPU, allowing the
user to get maximum performance out of their workstation. The CalDigit RAID
Card supports a variety of RAID levels (0, 1, 5, 6 and JBOD) to meet the
needs of a wide range of users. The CalDigit RAID Card provides RAID
performance and protection for to up to 16 drives (4 internal and 12
external via the CalDigit HDElement). At maximum capacity 16TB of storage
is capable, all at speeds of up to 500MBs.

means that the user can purchase a reasonable amount of storage to start,
and then as their storage needs increase they can add and expand the
CalDigit RAID Card’s capacity. The CalDigit RAID Card supports 4 drives
internally, and up to 3 HDElements (each HDElement contains 4 drives).
Another unique feature of the CalDigit RAID Card, is it’s ability to
migrate your data and RAID levels. This gives the user expanded
flexibility and room to grow and expand, without having to worry about
loosing valuable data.

Windows bootable. If you’re using an Apple Mac Pro, and need to boot into
Windows, the CalDigit RAID Card is also BootCamp bootable. This is
something that other RAID cards can’t do. The CalDigit RAID Card also
features CalDigit’s proprietary ASTT (Active Sustained Transfer
Technology). ASTT makes sure that your data is kept in check, avoiding
sudden drops in throughput and performance. This has a special importance
