Can do multiple levels of RAID or use for just JBODs. Good web interface, easy to understand and use. Fast, 5 disk RAID 5 achieves 600MB/sec reads and writes (locally).
* Super easy upgrade from an Adaptec 6405 to this. Just plug the card in, attach the internal cable (once you have it), attach the cables to your drives in whatever order, the card determines what the correct order is automatically and asks you to confirm. * Twice the cache of the 6405
*This comes pre-flashed with the IT firmware meaning it can be used in an Unraid system *Low profile bracket included
