I'm a cutomer from several years ago and I am seeking a fast external RAID storage solution for it. What do you recommend for SATA enclosure and PCIe card. I want to have 1TB of fast external storage.

Thanks

Hello,

take a look here:

We have a quad at work (the first Mac I have seen with PCIe) so all is very new at all. I have no experience with those new Sonnet cards.
All I can say the Burly enclosures are GREAT and with the new Port Multiplication Enclosures you can have up to 20 drives on one of those cards.

Best would be if you send an email or conact Rick directly here:

Congratulation!

Veerry Goooood purchase, especially if you have to run Classic apps, the IntelMacs can't do Classic anymore.

I am using Apples Fibre Channel cards and a video card only in the quad.
Also two Raptors (74GB), all I can say this monster is fast.


Best regards
