Incorporating the latest SATA Multilane connector, the Multilane 4X PCI-X Controller for Mac not only provides the fast SATA performance but also supports connecting up to 4 SATA ports externally via a single Infiniband cable. Drives connected to this controller can be easily configured as 4 individual ports with no RAID or with RAID 0 or RAID 1 using the Mac OS Disk Utility.

With the Multilane 4x PCI-X Controller for Mac, an external Disk Array storage system such as the Addonics Storage Tower or Mini Storage Tower can now be connected to a system with a reliable and clean cable management system.
