Boot, Launch, Create, and Save Faster
With simultaneous internal and external storage performance, the Mercury Accelsior_E2 offers an optimum combination of speed, capacity, and connectivity. With near instantaneous boots and app launches, it enables you to start and save your work faster. The Accelsior_E2 utilizes the PCIe slot in Mac Pros and PC towers, to deliver speeds of up to 820 Mb/s. When your work is completed, you can transfer it for backup or archival purposes at speeds of up to 600 Mb/s via the 2 eSATA expansion ports to any external storage device with an eSATA port.
Boost Entry-Level Server and Gaming
In addition to video-editing and multimedia creation / management deployment, the Accelsior_E2 delivers optimum performance for entry-level servers and even gaming applications. With up to 100,000 IOPS, business-critical applications like online transaction processing databases are given an instant boost. For gamers, Accelsior_E2's speed reduces game level-loading, object streaming, and saves time for more playing and less waiting.
