Adaptec unveils RAID for Windows NT
Adaptec recently unveiled the AAA-131CA array adapter and the ARO-1130 RAIDport II card for the Windows NT PC workstation market. The products feature a RAID coprocessor that manages 16MB of onboard cache. Both solutions support RAID levels 0 and 1 and up to 15 Fast/Wide Ultra SCSI peripherals. The AAA-131CA kit is priced at $599; the ARO-1130CA kit at $399.
Also, Adaptec this month begins shipping the AHA-2040U2W host adapter. The adapter doubles throughput from burst rates of 40MBps to 80MBps and quadruples the cable length. The AHA-2040U2W achieves its increased performance through the use of Adaptec`s UltraSCSI controller chip-- the AIC-7890--which features two RISC processors and two FIFO buffers. The AHA-2040U2W is priced at $499. Contact Adaptec at (408) 945-8600 or visit www.adaptec.com.
