MaxUpgrades hardware RAID for Mac Pro

updated 08:55 pm EDT, Fri May 30, 2008

MaxUpgrade Mac Pro RAID

MaxUpgrades on Friday unveiled the MaxConnect SAS/SATA Link for Mac Pro, a new PCI Express-based RAID solution that uses the existing internal drives on quad- and eight-core Mac Pro systems. The card connects to the internal drives, allowing users to use several RAID configurations, including 0, 1, 5, and 6. In addition, the device offers full HBA and RAID Control support. MaxUpgrades is offering the device for $230 direct from its website.

    Read your own press relea

    I swear the journalistic level of this site has turned to complete c***.

    The device does not do hardware RAID. It is a pass-through, letting you use the internal hot-swap bays with a PCI-e SATA or SAS card. If you buy a RAID PCI-e card, then yes, you can do RAID, but this is not a RAID device, it is simply a connector to allow you to use the internal bays with a 3rd party card. It would be nice if the "editors" of this site bothered to read and understand what they are talking about.

    How the mighty have fallen....

    Eat crow

    I'll admit when I'm wrong. This link points to the device bundled WITH a RAID card. The same device is available without the HBA, leaving you the option to choose your own.

    What Editors..?

    It's one kid, in a garage, with little literacy, or style...

    ...or at least it often feels that way around here.
