  Areca Launches ARC-1880 Series 6Gb/s SAS RAID Adapters



(12-16 Ports 6Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID Adapters)

Areca high-performance ARC-1880 series PCIe 2.0 to 6Gb/s SAS RAID adapter can provide up to (128) 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s SAS/SATA/SSD peripheral devices using 6Gb/s SAS expanders. The adapters are based on the same RAID kernel of field-proven external RAID adapter and same device drivers with widely used SAS/SATA RAID adapters. Applications that benefit most features from these adapters include NAS, server RAID solutions, supercomputing, near-line backup, security systems, streaming and cloud computing applications.
