Sapphire 5-Slot CFast Drive

This Sapphire 5-slot CFast drive is a unique and flexible platform for creating your own solid state drive (SSD) using commercially available high-speed CFast card. The five CFast cards can be configured to appear as five independent drives. They can set up as a high performance, fault tolerant RAID group or to form a large capacity solid state drive. There are choice of models with connection to high-speed 6G eSATA or the ubiquitous USB 3.0 / eSATA connection. When connecting via eSATA, the Sapphire CFast drive can be used as a bootable device. It is the ideal solution for improving storage performance, lowering the power consumption and improving the overall system reliability for application environments with frequent shocks and vibrations.
