With the innovative architecture, NA322A-R is designed to allow you plugging any standard SAS 3/6 Gbps or SATA II/III PCI-e Raid controller directly into its internal PCI-e slot and use its high speed external PCI-Express x8(20Gbps) as the host interface. Moreover, NA322A-R provides up to 12 3.5″ Hard Drives capacity with highest performance, fewer and lower-cost components. The substantial External PCI-e cable connection also gives system operations the high reliablity.
