"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

The Price/Performance Leader
The FastTrak SX4100 4-port Serial ATA RAID controller delivers exceptional RAID 5 performance at an unprecedented price/performance ratio. For companies running popular applications like web services, file/email servers, video streaming, NAS storage and nearline storage, the FastTrak SX4100 opens the world of professional RAID 5 performance and data protection and combines it with cost-effective Serial ATA (SATA) drives for the ultimate internal storage solution. Based on OEM-proven RAID 5 technology, the FastTrak SX4100 competes with SCSI RAID 5 controllers at one-half to one-third of the price. RAID 5 storage protection is no longer the privilege of large budget data center operations.

Improved RAS Functions with Serial ATA Drives
Designed specifically for Serial ATA RAID, the FastTrak SX4100 incorporates highly desired features that are ideally suited for SATA storage demands and improving overall RAS (Reliability, Availability and Serviceability). In addition to an improved RAID algorithm, among the enhancements are multiple logical drive support, Media Patrol? and read check table. Equipped with the new Promise Array Manager (WebPAM) software, FastTrak SX4100 is extremely easy to manage through a web graphical user interface.

Hardware-Assisted RAID 5 Architecture
RAID 5 implementation involves striping data and parity information (XOR) across the storage array. Since those parity calculations are so processor-intensive, RAID 5 controllers traditionally require a dedicated CPU to perform the XOR calculations and manage the array. Instead of adding a costly CPU to the controller, Promise's FastTrak SX4100 uses an integrated XOR engine for parity calculations, delivering extraordinary performance at a dramatically lower price. This approach takes advantage of today's ultra-powerful PC CPUs to manage the array and outperform traditional RAID 5 solutions. The FastTrak SX4100 sets a new standard for RAID 5 controllers.

Sophisticated Array Monitoring Tools
Web-based Promise Array Management (WebPAM) software offers professional management tools in a simple-to-use, straightforward format. Array configurations, management and monitoring features are available via the web based interface. Moreover, the FastTrak SX family supports industry standard SNMP so third party management application integration is simplified.

The Leader in SATA RAID
Promise Technology, Inc., recognized as the originator and worldwide leader of ATA RAID, has offered high-performance solutions for PC storage since 1988.
