The drives are already big enough and fast enough.
I won’t mention the RAID chassis vendor name since we’re no longer on good terms with them: Yes, the H seems like a great deal compared to this, with twice as many ports in one slot through fanouts.

Or is there a better one? Just as their response indicates, they’re using 10 drive and 20 drive systems, essentially cabinets with multipliers on each SATA input.
CalDigit 728100 Fasta-4e 4 Port C SATA 3g Host Card
I forgot tom mention, don’t mix up “ports” with “channels”. It provides affordable pricing, high performance data transfer rate, expandable and friendly configuration. That’s very clever marketing they have. They have sent me this card to sample, but I currently don’t caldibit access to any fast eSATA storage to test.

caligit I wasn’t sure how the 4e card is different or better. No complicated cabling needed. They also said the 4e card would be better. So to get the fastest connection when two or more separate non-RAID drives are connected is this the best card?
It allows you to connect up to 4 external S2VR with up to 20 drives and with 3Gbps bandwidth for each port for the fastest data transfer.
There’s no need to confuse the users with non-applicable numbers. Although this could be a super cheap way to have a large and fast RAID 0 if a person didn’t care about redundancy.
What Fastz-4e told me is the 4e uses a different chip, which is just all-around better and more expensive. The protocol is theoretically limited to 3Gbps. It is dedicated to video editors that require high performance and reliability.

Sustained Transfer for Video Editing: What kind of enclosure are you using to aggregate the 4 eSATA connections? This is more cost- and time-effective solution for digital caldigih processing. So, considering the card is EOL and not available anymore except through used channels for the most part — Ca,digit actually have one or two of those old FASTA-4ex cards around here somewhere — I would think we could round up something better for not much [more] money.
The H has 2 “ports” and 8 “channels”. Sort of reminds me of the way the tape vendors talk up the 2: Pretty lame, yes, but some calcigit use the card or others like it to multi-drive arrays in a RAID If you read the “fine print”, it’s a composite of all 4 ports.
This is the most affordable solution for video editors who work in a small to mid sized studio with a budget. Not all SATA cards built the same. Regardless, the result is fantastic, sustained performance for ingest and editing. We test with chassis from many vendors. SATA 3G is the alternative solution for editors and studios that do no require sharing the same content in the same storage pool but need high performance and data integrity.
