Adaptec, Inc., a global leader in storage solutions, today launched the most comprehensive family of Unified Serial RAID controllers for the PCI Express (PCIe) interface. The new family consists of five different products and includes 4- and 8-port low-profile models, as well as the industry's only 12- and 16-port designs. Ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications including media servers, email databases, and application servers, these Adaptec Unified Serial RAID controllers deliver enhanced I/O performance, expanded scalability and high throughput.


"Fujitsu and Adaptec were early to develop serial interface products for widespread enterprise adoption," said Joel Hagberg, vice president, marketing and business development, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "We enjoy a close relationship with Adaptec and the combination of Fujitsu serial hard drives with Adaptec Unified Serial controllers provides our customers and partners with compatible, tested solutions that will enhance performance and scale to manage enterprise data intensive applications."

The new family of Adaptec Unified Serial controllers enable enterprises to significantly boost the performance, scalability and reliability of their SATA disk drive-based solutions, coupled with the ability to also connect to high-performance SAS drives or both types of drives in the same system. In addition, by leveraging the industry's most comprehensive compatibility test lab, Adaptec has ensured that its Unified Serial controllers are compatible and fully supported by over 270 third-party systems and devices.

"Our goal is to continue to provide the most reliable, scalable, and cost-effective SAS/SATA storage enclosures to our customers," said Gene Lee, vice president of AIC, whose enclosure products went through extensive compatibility testing with the new Adaptec PCIe RAID controllers. "With Adaptec's latest RAID technology and its trusted reliability, AIC/Xtore is proud to team with Adaptec to offer users compatible storage components with leading performance and capacity support."

About the New Adaptec Unified Serial RAID Controllers
Adaptec's new family of Unified Serial RAID controllers are available with 4 to 16 3Gb/s ports and offer connectivity to both SATA and SAS disk drives. Designed specifically for entry to mid-range servers and workstations, the family consists of five (5) new solutions: The Adaptec RAID 3405 with 4 internal ports, the Adaptec RAID 3805 with 8 internal ports, the Adaptec RAID 31205 with 12 internal ports, the Adaptec RAID 31605 with 16 internal ports, and the Adaptec RAID 3085 with 8 external ports and the industry's first dual path failover functionality for external data path redundancy.

All of these new controllers come standard with Adaptec's legendary RAID data protection including the protection against the failure of two disk drives (RAID 6) and high-performance RAID 5 with hot space (RAID 5EE). The Adaptec Advanced Data Protection Suite also includes RAID 1E and Copyback Hot Spare for improved management and the ability to automatically reset a hot spare configuration. Customers can also choose to purchase the optional Snapshot Backup feature that creates a point-in-time copy of an array for improved data backup, management and disaster recovery.

In addition to a wide range of customer benefits, Adaptec's suite of Unified Serial RAID controllers for PCIe also enables system builders to sell a wide range of solutions with a variety of price points using a single storage architecture.

Pricing and Availability
The new Adaptec RAID 3405 (4-port), 3805 (8-port), 3085 (8-port), 31205 (12-port), and 31605 (16-port) controllers will be shipping and available through worldwide distributors and resellers on March 30, 2007. Pricing is $390 U.S. MSRP for the 3405, $575 U.S. MSRP for the 3805, $745 U.S. MSRP for the 3085, $795 U.S. MSRP for the 31205, and $995 U.S. MSRP for the 31605.

That is kind of crazy priced for PCIe controllers. My only question is...why so many ports?

Ahh I See. I would love to have something take advantage of the PCIeX1 and PCIeX4 slots though.

This probably is PCI-e 8x stuff. Plus there is hardware for those PCIe slots of yours, sound cards, storage controllers, NICs. You probably don't need them though.

Only thing I need is a sound card, and they dont make those for PCIe.
