    PCI Express SATA III RAID Controller with Internal Mini-SAS SFF-8087 Connector
    Marketing Information

    Add Internal SATA III (6Gbps) support to a computer through a single Mini SAS (SFF-8087) port. The PEXSAT34SFF PCI Express SATA Controller Card enables 4 AHCI SATA III connections to be added to a computer, through a single internal Mini-SAS (SFF-8087) port, connected using a PCI Express slot.

    The controller card features a Mini SAS connector, which when used with our Mini-SAS to 4x SATA breakout cables and Mini-SAS SFF-8087 backplanes (accessories not included, SAS drives not supported), provide an internal 6Gbps connectivity solution, all from a single card.

    Compliant with SATA revision 3.0, this 4-Port PCI Express SATA controller card delivers up to 6Gbps of data bandwidth, which makes it ideal for utilizing the speed of high performance hard drives and solid state drives (SSD).

    The card also offers Port Multiplier (PM) support, which allows for multiple SATA drives (up to 7) to be connected using a single cable. Plus, the controller card offers an effective hardware RAID solution, with native RAID (0, 1, 1+0) support.

    The PEXSAT34SFF PCIe SATA 6g card is backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

    PCIe SATA Controller Card
    Marketing Information
    Add Internal SATA III (6Gbps) support to a computer through a single Mini SAS (SFF-8087) port. The PEXSAT34SFF PCI Express 2.0 SATA Controller Card enables 4 AHCI SATA III connections to be added to a computer through a single internal Mini-SAS (SFF-8087) connector.

    The Mini-SAS connector with Port Multiplier support allows for multiple SATA drives (up to 7) to be connected using a single cable. When used with our SAS8087S4100" text="Mini-SAS to 4x SATA breakout cable or SATSAS425BK" text="Mini-SAS SFF-8087 backplane (accessories not included, SAS drives not supported), you have a complete internal 6Gbps connectivity solution, all from a single card.

    Featuring HyperDuo technology, the SATA card offers SSD auto-tiering which lets you balance the performance advantages of SSD storage with the cost-effectiveness and large capacity of standard hard drives. By combining SSD and HDD drives into a single volume (up to 3 SSD + 1 HDD), HyperDuo discreetly works in the background to identify and move frequently accessed files to the faster SSD drive(s) for improved data throughput - up to 80% of SSD performance! (Note: The HyperDuo automatic storage tiering feature is compatible with computers that use a BIOS.)

    Compliant with SATA revision 3.0, this PCI Express SATA RAID card delivers up to 6Gbps of data bandwidth; ideal for high performance hard drives and solid state drives (SSD). Plus, the controller card offers an effective hardware RAID solution, with native RAID (0, 1, 1+0) support.
