The Vantec UGT-ST644R add-on card is a high-performing, low-cost solution that adds multiple SATA connectivity via PCIe 2x interface to your computer. Four channels can be assigned freely within six SATA ports (four internal ports and two external ports) to meet your personal needs, while the attached drives can be configured into multiple RAID modes for optimized performance and data protection. The support for SATA III and PCI Express 2.0 allows you to take full advantage of today's storage technology without compromise. Full-height and low-profile brackets are both included for easy integration into systems of various form factors.

  • newegg HyperDuo Technology HyperDuo, created by Marvell Semiconductor, Inc., optimizes the performance of storage technology. It involves the combination of the SSD as cache storage for the HDD drive to give unparalleled access speed. This tiering of SSD and HDD can give you 80% SSD performance at about the a third of the cost. Using safe mode, you mirror frequently accessed files (hot files) in SSD speed; in capacity mode, you combine SSD and HDD with frequently accessed files (hot files) in the SSD. You can easily setup the configuration in the card BIOS to optimize your system.
  • newegg Four SATA III Channels A total of four channel gives you the capability of add up to four HDD/SSD drives for performance boost or storage expansion. SATA III 6Gbps on every channel offers the maximum performance for all your drives.
  • newegg Six Configurable Ports Two dedicated channels are routed to two internal ports and cannot be disabled. The other two channels can be assigned to two internal ports, two external ports, or one internal port and one external port, all at your will. The configuration is implemented via the onboard jumper. The port multiplier function is great for multi-bay enclosures to minimize multiple cables and maximize storage. Support both FIS and command-based switching
  • newegg Multiple RAID Modes RAID 0, 1, 10, and HyperDuo function for redundancy Keep your data safe and, at the same time, enjoy faster disk access.
  • newegg PCI Express 2.0 This stable technology with great compatibility provides faster and wider bandwidth for data flow between the drives and your system.
  • newegg Easy Integration A low-profile bracket is included to simplify your installation into standard desktop-, slimline-, or low-profile systems.

Slightly below average card with performance issues 1/5/2019 2:32:08 PM

Pros: - Hyperduo seems to work best with random loads
- low cost hardware RAID1
- works with Windows 10/Server 2016, Ubuntu 16.04/18.04

Cons: - poor performance and occasional failure with heavy loads
- poor documentation
- little to no recommendations for usage

Overall Review: As other reviews have stated, this card simply becomes unusable after periods of sustained writes (copying video files, virtual disks, etc...) and I have tried this card on multiple architectures and operating systems with and without hyper duo/with and without RAID1.

The card seemed to work best using hyper duo in storage mode (tiered storage with SSD and hard disk) with a a disk volume that grows over time.

I don't think I could recommend this card and anything but a test computer or in a much older computer. I really wanted this to work but just could not find a workable solution.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Customer,

Thanks for writing.
This controller is designed to be a simple HyperDuo/RAID controller and not a replacement for higher-end RAID controller or enterprise or run in a VM environment. There may be causes as to why it did not perform up to par, sometime is due to configuration and setup that can be addressed with Vantec support. If you have questions about our products please feel free to write to us for assistance at support@vantecusa.com. We will try our best to answer your questions. Thank you for looking into our products. We do value your patronage.

Warning, associated software may cause a memory leak 6/7/2017 5:51:38 AM

Pros: Works as expected as a SATA controller

Cons: The included software for the marvell tray caused a massive memory leak, Related to Apache server and logging issues (which I had no need of).
I have 32 gb of RAM, Each morning my usage had risen to near or at 100%. I had also installed a SSD and migrated my OS, so i spent time trying to figure out if this was related. Running poolmon.exe (WDK kit) revealed unidentified proc leaks occurring.
Uninstalled the the Marvell container software (left the driver) and problem resolved. Apparently this is related to a mis-configured apache server issue in the software's management setup.

Nice SATA HDD card - lots of options 1/15/2017 1:34:46 AM

Pros: This was super simple to install. No hassles. AHCI works fine, and getting 300MB/sec transfers with my SSD.

This can operate up to 4 drives, but has 6 port available to configure what you want.

This would be a good HBA for a FreeNAS system.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Please read the description carefully. It can only operate 4 ports, but has 6 optional ports available - 4 internal and 2 external. I don't think it is cool to ding the vendor when you did not read the information.

I will be getting another one of these.

Pros: -If you plan to use this for very small I/O devices it might work

Cons: -HD Storage will not work with this device cant handle the I/O
-Constant drive disconnect

Overall Review: Dont buy this unless you want something very easily stalled out by basic I/O.

Great when it works, however it does not do well under load 10/3/2015 7:45:18 AM

Pros: * This is a very attractive price point for a SATA-3 card
* 4 internal ports were precisely what I needed to have additional storage on my media server
* The card performs well when not under significant load.

Cons: The card drops out under significant load. This has occurred for me several times over the last 9 months. I run Distributed File System to replicate my videos between my two servers. When there is a lot of content (hundreds of GB) or if I need to do an initial replication (several TB) after upgrading the storage, the controller drops out and all of the drives that are connected to it are no longer available. Most recently this caused DFS to stall and I had to recreate the replication between the servers in an attempt to get it to fully replicate.
