If performance and scalability are your key requirements... E8 is hard to beat

E8 is the powerhouse of our productline, offering unparelleled performance of up to 1900 MB/s when fully loaded with SAS drives, or 2500 MB/s using SATA drives. No other RAID controller in the industry can offer this kind of performance - and if that's not enough, you can double the performance by adding a second RAID controller to the E8-system. The E8 offers phenomenal space with support for up to 448TB per RAID controller.
