            I use this HBA to connect an LTO-5 tape drive and several eSata drives and RAID enclosures to my Mac Pro without a problem. Using this with an HP tape drive and Bru backup software (Bru Producers edition) is the way to go if you want both SAS/eSata connectivity and reliable backup solutions for your Mac Pro while sacrificing only 1 PCIe slot.

            Comments about ATTO Technology ExpressSAS 6 Gbps SAS/SATA PCIe 2.0 Host Bus Adapter (8 External Ports):

            I installed the Atto Controller as documented in our Mac PRO Server, theExpressSAS H680 driver, connect the Tandberg Data SAS LTO-4 tape drive, then reboot and start the backup software.

            No glitch. I just had to select the new drive and the LTO was ready to be used.

            Our version of Mac OS X Server was 10.6.7

            The performance are great...
