ATTO ExpressPCI 4SRO IS a SCSI host adapter. SCSI adapters are used to attach one or more SCSI devices to a computer bus. For some, it is known as a SCSI controller since this term is also a device which consists of all SCSI devices. To differentiate host controllers, they are responsible in directing the process of transferring data between the SCSI bus and the computer's input or output bus. A few good examples are CD ROMs and hard discs. Newly produced SCSI adapters are in thirty bit or sixty four bit PCI cards which are higher than those first manufactured with only sixteen bit ISA bus or the transitional 32-bit VESA as well as EISA buses. PCI cards enable users to connect the components to the computer's processor. Users see these connections among their other computer hardware such as hard disks, memory, sound systems, video systems and the like. The very usage of this device is to construct parts that are more interchangeable. These devices can just be plugged or unplugged if the user wants to upgrade or downgrade their computer hardware. It was in the ninety’s when Intel introduced the very first PCI bus or the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) bus.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
This stands as the hybrid of sorts between the ISA and VL Bus. Through a connection, it gives admittance to system memory for connected devices. If a SCSI host adapter is within the PC motherboard, that hardware is particularly expensive as compared to the usual brands. SCSI adapters are usually separate. This is more practical in order to easily replace or transfer to another machine. Since then, SCSI host adapters have two classes - CD-Rom drives and SCSI scanners. These are a mostly low performance cards and are quite inexpensive. A lot of these devices were stopped from being manufactured because of the following reasons: the downfall of the ISA slot, IDE technologies were improved and lastly, the dawn of USB which made the expense of an SCSI interface unnecessary for most scanners. The other type of SCSI are the “high-end cards” which were invented for maximum performance. These are typically for high-speed hard drives such as those going through servers. To date, there are two leading manufacturers of SCSI host controllers - Adaptec and LSI Logic. ARECA SATA RAID Host Adapter offers easy connection of storage DAS arrays through external three gigabyte ports. These enable an external server storage RAID and non-RAID enclosures with unmatched throughput by connecting to a four-lane 2.5 Gb/s PCI Express bus. ATTO Technology, Inc expertise feature an advanced technology. They continuously design computer hardware that can help consumers to better store, manage and deliver data. Among their excellent products ATTO has invented include host adapters, RAID adapters, bridges, RAID storage controllers and management software. Another feature of this device is its ability to render applications such as digital video, digital audio, film, broadcast and any other video on demand solutions. Furthermore, there are also image intensive applications such as mapping, pre-press, publishing, printing, CAD or CAM, medical and document imaging. Server environments are also untapped. The company wanted these servers for direct attachments or for network attached storage such as SAN and NAS with disk, tape, optical, compact discs or any storage media.
