Newer Technology (http://www.newertech.com) has announced the NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G PCIe 2.0 RAID Controller Card, a mass storage solution for adding two SATA 6Gb/s ports — along with port multiplier support for adding up to 20TB of desktop storage with RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 — support to Mac Pros and PCs with an open PCIe slot.
The NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G PCIe 2.0 RAID Controller Card is available immediately at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$99 from NewerTech’s exclusive distributor, Other World Computing (OWC), as well as through the retail channel. It’s compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 and later and Windows 2000 and later and comes backed by a three-year warranty.
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 five 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.
