Miglia Technology is now shipping the Alchemy ATA 133 RAID PCI card for use with Macs. The Alchemy ATA 133 RAID PCI card is a ATA PCI upgrade designed for data transfer rates of 133MB/sec on multiple drives. The Alchemy ATA 133 RAID PCI card ships OS 10.1 ready. According to Miglia Technology:
Miglia Technology, today announces the availability of its latest ATA PCI upgrade, the Alchemy ATA133 RAID PCI. The new card has built in hardware support for Raid 0 guaranteeing incredible increase in data transfer rates.
The Alchemy ATA133 RAID PCI provides 133MB/s on each of its two channels allowing up to four separate drives to be connected inside the Mac (2 drives on the internal bus, 2 on the ATA card). With the built in support for Raid 0, it is possible to read and write to 2 drives simultaneously increasing the I/O performance of your Mac. The Alchemy ATA133 RAID PCI card along with the standard Alchemy ATA133 PCI card supports drives larger than 137 GB (128 GB) another advantage over standard ATA 66 and ATA100 cards.
The Alchemy ATA133 RAID PCI can be used in standard mode in which drives are accessed independently or in RAID mode in which I/O operations are performed simultaneously on two drives.
The Alchemy ATA133 RAID PCI follows in the finest traditions with the rest of the Alchemy family and is OSX compatible (including 10.1), as well as with Mac OS 8.6 to 9.x .
