Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb 2-port is versatile. Its fast, 6 Gb/s eSATA interface is well suited to deal with the increased bandwidth requirements of 6 Gb/s SSDs. Built around a new, second generation chipset, it offers greatly improved performance over older 6 Gb/s eSATA cards. More onboard cache enables this Sonnet controller to perform even better in the latest computers and Sonnet's Echo Express Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis for PCIe Cards.
External storage systems with an eSATA interface offer great flexibility. Single drive enclosures are very handy if you need to back up data or move files from one computer to another. Many storage systems include swappable drive trays, which are perfect for managing daily backups and multiple projects. Some systems, like Sonnet's Fusion™ F3
, feature hardware RAID controllers that manage up to four drives and enable you to create large, protected RAID volumes, yet the systems only require a single cable to connect to this pro eSATA card.
