Areca ARC-1880ixl-8
Areca ARC-1880ixl-8

Areca’s high-performance 6Gbit/s SAS RAID host adapter can provide up to 128 SAS/SATA II peripheral devices using SAS expanders.

The adapters are based on the same RAID kernel of field-proven external RAID adapter.

Applications that benefit most features from these controllers include NAS, server RAID solutions, web servers, supercomputing, near-line backup, security systems and streaming applications.
