4-Port RAID 5 / JBOD SATA II PCI Controller

The 4 port ADSA4R5 provides high speed SATA in a PCI controller supporting RAID5 and JBOD, allowing desktop configurations with only PCI slots to have the newest RAID features. This RAID5/JBOD controller supports configurations of RAID 1, RAID 0, RAID 1+0, RAID 1 + S, RAID5 and JBOD. JBOD combines individual drives into one large volume to show as one drive letter.

With the Addonics optional Disk Array 5SA or 3SA system, you can add high performance storage system rivaling the traditional SCSI storage at less than half of the cost.
