(2-Port PCIe x1 to SATA RAID Adapter)

The Areca ARC-1203-2I SATA RAID host adapter is a PCIe 2.0 x1 bus to 6Gb/s SATA disk array host adapter. It provides two SATA lll ports on a single controller. It is used the same RAID kernel of its field-proven 6Gb/s, and 12Gb/s SAS RAID controller and uses the same drivers and management tools to help keep implementation and maintenance costs low. When properly configured, the SATA RAID adapter can provide a high degree of performance and fault tolerance with data mirroring for maximum protection. The ARC-1203-2I is the industry's most compelling 2-port 6Gb/s SATA RAID solution which economically delivers fullfeatured true hardware RAID to desktop and workstations as well as entry-level servers.
