mr_a schrijft dat op Storage Review is te lezen dat 3Ware wellicht niet stopt met het produceren van high-end IDE-RAID controllers. Dit in tegenstelling tot eerdere berichten. Op de site van 3Ware is echter nog niets te vinden die deze berichten bevestigen:
When 3ware informed us of their decision to exit the ATA RAID market about a month and a half ago, we were extremely disappointed to say the least. After all, 3ware's Escalade series defined the term "high-end ATA RAID", so we were quite surprised and dismayed at this revelation.
With that in mind, we were pleased to hear from 3ware earlier today that they've changed their mind: 3ware's ATA RAID business isn't going anywhere (not anytime real soon, at least). 3ware will continue to produce and support the entire Escalade 7000 series, and we've been told that roadmaps for future Escalade products are indeed imminent.
