HBA (Host Bus Adapters)

A Host Bus Adapter (HBA) is an expansion card that plugs into a PCIe slot on the motherboard and provides fast, reliable non-RAID communication between the host system and the storage devices.

IDE/SATA I/SCSI

A simple disk array controller may be integrated with a host bus adapter (HBA) to form a single adapter to easily fit inside a computer. These additional add-in cards allow you to add more IDE or Serial ATA drives to your system to give you more storage capacity. Some of these cards also allow the use of RAID thus increasing the performance and data security.

RAID Controllers

A RAID controller card is similar to an HBA, but can also add redundancy (RAID) for your data, help optimise performance, reduce latency, or even make smart decisions on whether to store data on an HDD or an SSD cache, depending on user needs.

SATA / SAS / eSATA - 12-32 Port - 6-12 Gb/s

These cards can be installed inside desktop PCs to provide professional-level storage capabilities. They use the increased speed offered by the PCI Express bus in order to facilitate super-fast RAID configurations, and the cards in this category include between 12 and 32 ports - perfect for the most demanding of corporate setups.

SATA / SAS / eSATA - 3 Gb/s

These additional add-on cards enable to add more SATA/SAS/eSATA drives to your system to give more storage capacity according to the card type. Some of these cards also allow the use of RAID thus increasing the performance and data security.

SATA / SAS / eSATA - 6-12 Gb/s

These controller cards are entry-level models that use a 1x PCI-E slot in order to provide faster SATA performance that any standard storage connector can provide. The products in this category have two connections for small-scale RAID arrays, and some work in Macs as well as PCs.
