Placentia, California – July 14, 2008. The CalDigit RAID Card is the perfect addition to any PCIe equipped desktop computer. It allows you to add a hardware RAID to 4 internal hard drives as well as the ability to add up to 12 drives externally.

Designed with the Creative Content professional in mind, the CalDigit RAID Card adds RAID protected storage, additional drive speed, and additional flexibility to any PCIe equipped desktop computer. Whether you make a living on your computer or are just a casual user, the CalDigit RAID Card gives you the reassurance that your data will get to you faster with added protection.

The CalDigit RAID Card is 100% hardware RAID. Unlike software RAID solutions, the CalDigit RAID Card had a dedicated Intel XScale processor and 256MB of cache on board. This frees up the host CPU, allowing the user to get maximum performance out of their workstation. The CalDigit RAID Card supports a variety of RAID levels (0, 1, 5, 6 and JBOD) to meet the needs of a wide range of users. The CalDigit RAID Card provides RAID performance and protection for to up to 16 drives (4 internal and 12 external via the CalDigit HDElement). At maximum capacity 16TB of storage is capable, all at speeds of up to 500MBs.

The innovative and modular design allows users to pay-as-they-go. This means that the user can purchase a reasonable amount of storage to start, and then as their storage needs increase they can add and expand the CalDigit RAID Card’s capacity. The CalDigit RAID Card supports 4 drives internally, and up to 3 HDElements (each HDElement contains 4 drives). Another unique feature of the CalDigit RAID Card, is it’s ability to migrate your data and RAID levels. This gives the user expanded flexibility and room to grow and expand, without having to worry about loosing valuable data.

The CalDigit RAID Card works on multiple platforms and is both Mac and Windows bootable. If you’re using an Apple Mac Pro, and need to boot into Windows, the CalDigit RAID Card is also BootCamp bootable. This is something that other RAID cards can’t do. The CalDigit RAID Card also features CalDigit’s proprietary ASTT (Active Sustained Transfer Technology). ASTT makes sure that your data is kept in check, avoiding sudden drops in throughput and performance. This has a special importance for video applications meaning that dropped frames are a thing of the past.

The CalDigit RAID Card has a MSRP of $549, making it a truly affordable hardware RAID solution, and it’s available now! For more information visit the CalDigit website ( You can get the CalDigit RAID Card from your local CalDigit Dealer.
