SETAC VarioFlex Pyramid

S3A1U3L-A1

1U PCI Express Gen3.0 Host Connector Interface Adapter

Silicom SETAC (Server to Appliances Converter) solution designed for system where needed high quantity of I/O ports and interfaces, and where high quantity of different configurations must handle efficiently by end user.

Silicom SETAC is designed for standard servers and common 1U, 2U or 3U mountable chassis with 3 to 6 HD bays on the front end.

The Silicom SETAC provides front networking connectivity for the standard rack mountable server.

Silicom SETAC solution based on Silicom ExpressModule cards, providing widest networking and Bypass solution. Silicom SETAC replaces SATA HD trays by Silicom ExpressModule I/O. Silicom SETAC replaces HD SATA backplane with PCI Express backplane.
