    SATA 3Gb/s


    SuperLane is a simplified cabling design that allows multiple drives to be connected to SATA controller via one SATA port. Helping you better manage the cabling behind S2VR. Port Multiplier

      Hot Plug Perfect for
      Sneaker Networking

    Physical transport of your data between workstations is easily accomplished. Simply turn-off the S2VR, remove the eSATA cable from your computer, go to the new location, plug in the cable and turn the S2VR back on. This can be done without turning-off or rebooting your operating system.

      Frees up FireWire Ports
      Perfect for Video Professionals

    In most PC's or Mac's, without the addition of a PCI or PCIMCA card, the FireWire ports share the same bus and split the bandwidth between all connected peripherals. The S2VR utilizes the SATA 3Gb/s port on the FASTA adapter freeing up the FireWire ports allowing connection of other peripherals such as the AJA Io LA, LD, DV Camcorders, etc to have the full bandwidth.

    For video professionals

      Modular Design

    The S2VR's drives, fan and power supply are designed to be swappable. Our modular design allows the fan and drives, which can potentially fail, to be easily and quickly hot swapped reducing downtime on time-critical projects.

    S2VR Modular Design

    Package includes CalDigit's latest SATA 3Gb/s PCI-e or PCI-x HBA (FASTA-4x or FASTA-4e) and eSATA cable to complete a total RAID solution. Unlike SCSI or Fibre Channel, you don't have to purchase an expensive HBA separately.
