Promise Technology boosts performance of four-drive Ultra ATA/133 RAID systems with new FastTrak controller


Promise Technology today announced expansion of its FastTrak™ family of ATA RAID controllers with the FastTrak TX4000 controller for Ultra ATA/133 drives.

Promise’s FastTrak TX4000 ATA RAID controller targets high-performance desktop PC users interested in achieving enhanced performance in four-drive ATA RAID set-ups with a controller solution that provides four independent Ultra ATA channels. Using one independent channel for each of the four drives eliminates the master-slave drive configuration used on two-channel controllers, enabling greater cable flexibility, improving data throughput, and providing hot-swap support in a RAID 0+1 set-up when paired with Promise’s SuperSwap™ 1000 hot-swap drive enclosure.

“As the market for ATA RAID continues to grow, storage users are looking for targeted solutions that address their unique requirements. Promise responds with highly-focused customer-specific solutions,” said Sam Sirisena, vice president of sales and marketing worldwide, Promise Technology Inc. “With this new controller, Promise provides performance-oriented Ultra ATA users with the optimal cost-effective four-drive RAID solution.”

Promise’s FastTrak TX4000 controller leverages the company’s hardware and software expertise to maximize performance in an entry-level, value-oriented RAID system. FastTrak controllers provide data protection and performance enhancement with support for RAID levels 0 (striping), 1 (mirroring), and 0+1 (striping and mirroring). The FastTrak TX4000 employs Promise Technology’s single-chip controller ASIC with an integrated BIOS that automatically recognizes which type of drive is in place and optimizes performance, delivering data transfer speeds up to 266MB/sec.

To assure faster transfers, Promise cards use sophisticated data handling techniques to make data transfers more efficient and minimize overloading the host system CPU and slowing system response. Promise FastTrak controllers also include user-friendly FastBuild™ software to simplify installation and Promise Array Management (PAM) software, a professional-level visual administration tool to monitor and maintain the storage subsystem locally or remotely.

The FastTrak TX4000 lists for € 158 (MSRP), and is shipping now.
