"Avnet Computing Components is proud to be the first to offer the XFX Revo64 storage accelerator card to the etail/retail/reseller market." "Avnet is an enormous distributor of computer components," said, Cy Brown, vice president of sales of XFX.
"Having such a high volume distributor behind XFX perfectly aligns us to deliver this new technology to the European marketplace." The XFX Revo64 storage accelerator card featuring the Netcell Revolution storage processing unit (SPU) delivers a 100% hardware-based RAID engine that powers the industry's only true hardware RAID 0, 1, 3 and JBOD storage arrays.
