Apricorn launches new PCI drive arrays

Offers sequential read speeds of 791 MB/sec and sequential write speeds of 675 MB/sec

By CBR Staff Writer

Apricorn has launched the new PCIe and the PCI-X drive arrays, which support up to four 2.5-inch SATA hard drives or solid state drives. With the PCI drive arrays, industrial and power users can use up to 4TB in a single slot to support applications such as servers, industrial PCs, data collection and storage systems.

Apricorn said that each PCI drive array embeds four 2.5-inch, 5400/7200 RPM or solid state SATA hard drives on one card. When used with solid state drives, the PCI drive array can offer sequential read speeds of 791 MB/sec, and sequential write speeds of 675 MB/sec.

The company said that the PCI drive array contains drivers for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Novell Netware operating systems for both RAID and non-RAID operations. The PCI drive array also includes configuration software and supports RAID (0, 1, 5) as well as JBOD and concatenated volumes through the Silicon Image SATARaid RAID management utility.

Mike McCandless, vice president of sales and marketing at Apricorn, said: “Now industrial and power users know they can count on Apricorn to bring them high-performance products to meet their storage and backup needs.”
