What kind of enclosure are you using to aggregate the 4 eSATA connections? So, considering the card is EOL and not available anymore except through used channels for the most part — I actually have one or two of those old FASTA-4ex cards around here somewhere — I would think we could round up something better for not much [more] money. I won’t mention the RAID chassis vendor name since we’re no longer on good terms with them: So to get the fastest connection when two or more separate non-RAID drives are connected is this the best card? Or is there a better one?

CalDigit Fasta-4e 4 Port PCI Express SATA 3g Host Adapter Card
Pretty lame, yes, but some people use the card or others like it to multi-drive arrays in a Fasta-4 SATA 3G is the alternative solution for editors and studios that do no require caldigt the same content in the same storage pool but need high performance and data integrity. So it’s as I suspected: Sort of reminds me of the way the tape vendors talk up the 2: Although this could be a super cheap way to have a large and fast RAID 0 if a person didn’t care about redundancy.
It provides affordable pricing, high performance data transfer rate, expandable fasta-4s friendly configuration. Regardless, the result is fantastic, sustained performance for ingest and editing. The H has 2 “ports” and 8 “channels”. Right Gear to Digital Darkroom Being a photographer, loading or searching through thousands of pictures via USB or FireWire interface may not be practical or efficient.
The drives are already big enough and fast enough. It allows you to connect up to 4 external S2VR with up to 20 drives and with 3Gbps bandwidth for each port for the fastest data transfer.
So to get the fastest connection when two or more separate non-RAID drives cadligit connected is this the best card? They also said the 4e card would be better.
That’s very clever marketing they have. Or is there a better one? What kind of enclosure are you using to aggregate the 4 eSATA connections? I won’t mention the RAID chassis vendor name since we’re no longer on good terms with them: There’s no need to confuse the users with non-applicable numbers.

Not all SATA cards built the same. Just as their response indicates, they’re using 10 drive and 20 drive systems, essentially cabinets with multipliers on each SATA input. I just meant the lame part was the way the card’s speed was being presented by their marketing.
Sustained Transfer for Video Editing: For editors that need to share the same content data in the same storage pool, Fibre Channel is a good choice. The protocol is theoretically limited to 3Gbps. In another thread http: Yes, the H seems like a great deal compared to this, with twice as many ports in one slot through fanouts.
CalDigit FASTA-4e 4-Port PCI Express eSATA 3Gb/s Host B&H
No complicated cabling needed. If you read the “fine print”, it’s a composite of all 4 ports.
This is more cost- and time-effective solution for digital image processing. Related products and accessories: What Caldigit told me is the 4e uses a different chip, which is just all-around better and more expensive.
I forgot tom mention, don’t mix up “ports” with “channels”. So, considering the card is EOL and not available anymore except through used channels for the most part — I actually have one or two of those old FASTA-4ex cards around here somewhere — I would think we could round up something better for not much [more] faldigit. We test with caldiyit from many vendors. By aggregating the 4 3Gb ports, you effectively provide the potential for 1.
