This 2 Port PCI Express eSATA Controller Adapter Card offers simple connectivity between a host computer and eSATA devices. Providing two eSATA ports the adapter card offers a cost-effective solution for connecting hot-pluggable, high-speed storage, and in turn allows for easier data backups and archiving.
