Adaptec is launching a full line of Ultra160 SCSI products that meet I/O requirements in systems ranging from enterprise servers to professional Windows desktops. The Adaptec SCSI Card 39160 provides the ultimate dual-channel Ultra160 SCSI performance and scalability for enterprise server configurations with internal and external hard disk drives. This card offers maximum throughput by using a 64-bit interface and by connecting up to 30 devices. New Ultra160 devices and legacy devices can run concurrently while maintaining maximum throughput.
The Adaptec SCSI Card 29160, targeted at the mainstream server market, provides the highest performance on a single channel 64-bit PCI card with both internal and external connections to Ultra160 SCSI hard disk drives. The card also provides an internal connection to all legacy devices through legacy wide and narrow connectors. This SCSI card offers the greatest configuration versatility by enabling Ultra160 SCSI and legacy SCSI device connectivity, both internally and externally, in any combination.
The Adaptec SCSI Card 29160N is targeted for use with workstations and entry- level servers. It features a 32-bit PCI interface, and provides a high-performance internal connection to Ultra160 SCSI hard disk drives, and internal and external connections to narrow SCSI devices including tape backup, CD-RW drives, scanners, and removable drives. This card is ideal for environments where the fastest SCSI drives are inside the box and external narrow devices are required. The 39160, 29160 and 29160N support all major operating systems, including Linux.
Adaptec SCSI Card 19160 is for high-performance desktops and provides connectivity to both internal SCSI hard drives and external narrow SCSI devices. The SCSI Card 19160 supports Windows 95, Windows 98 and NT 4.0.
