Daisy Chain Diagram Explanation

NA333A(Daisy_Chain_Explanation)NA333A_application
NA333A-R is the second generation of PCI-e(Host) to SAS/SATA 3/6 Gbps(Disk) 3U-16 bay storage product line from Netstor. It’s not only an external storage capacity expansion but also features PCI-Express slot expander to solve the PCI-e slot shortage problem in 1U or 2U server while you want to expand the big sotrage capacity as well as the PCI-e slot(s).

The chassis pacakge is including a PCI-Express host adaptor and an external PCI-e 8x cable for you to convert and connect the host system internal PCI-E slot becoming external port into NA333A-R and it’s designed to provide up to three(3) PCI-e slots for plugging any standard SAS/SATA PCI-e Raid card to configue the NA333A-R to be Raid Subsystem and any PCI-e add-on card while PCI-e slot is shortage in the existing server or workstation. It means NA333A-R only requests a PCI-e slot from host server but provides a mass stoage capacity and 3 more PCI-e slots to customer.

Host Requirement and Cable length available

  • Apple Mac Pro or PC workstation with one available PCI-e x8 slot
  • External PCI-e cable available length – up to 7 Meter
