The new G-SPEED eS PRO from G-Tech provides professional content creators better than Fibre-Channel performance for demanding post production applications at a fraction of the cost. The compact and whisper quiet G-SPEED eS PRO features mini-SAS connectivity to a high performance PCIe x8 IOP RAID controller that supports RAID levels 0,1,3,5 and RAID 6.
