3ware Sidecar SATA II RAID

Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (AMCC) has announced the availability of the 3ware Sidecar SATA II desktop storage solution, providing robust hardware RAID data protection for the Power Mac G5. The 3ware Sidecar offers up to three terabytes (TB) in capacity and RAID 5 write speeds of up to 150MB per second. AMCC's 3ware StorSwitch architecture integrates custom-designed firmware, hardware and management software optimized for high bandwidth applications. The company says the solution offers up to six times the speed of FireWire and USB 2.0: the sleek 4-bay, external SATA desktop enclosure includes a two-meter external SATA Multi-lane cable and a 3ware PCI Express to SATA II RAID controller and RAID management software. The 3ware Sidecar RAID controller provides onboard processors to deliver true hardware RAID. The AMCC 3ware Sidecar will begin shipping later this month for $1,300 (no drives).
