    Marketing Information

    The FastTrak SX4060 ATA RAID PCI adapter delivers industry leading RAID 5 performance at an unprecedented performance-to-price ratio. For companies running popular applications like web services, file/email servers, audio/video streaming and nearline storage, the FastTrak SX4060 opens the world of professional RAID 5 performance and data protection and combines it with cost-effective Ultra ATA (PATA) drives for the ultimate internal storage solution. Based on OEM-proven RAID 5 technology, the FastTrak SX4060 competes with SCSI RAID 5 controllers-at one half to one-third of the price. RAID 5 storage protection is no longer the privilege of budget-rich IT departments.
