Brand new IBM card, opened only for photo's and to check contents.  Apparently these cards will support larger drives - I have tested one to 300GB no problems.


At a Glance

Combine the ATA133 RAID Controller and economical EIDE hard disk drives (HDDs) to configure a low-cost RAID solution. The ATA133 RAID Controller offers these advantages:
  • Provides high performance - Supports HDDs with EIDE ATA/133 technology
  • Contains dual channels - Supports up to two HDDs per channel
  • Links HDDs to create a single virtual drive
  • Supports popular RAID levels 0, 1, and 10
  • Provides easy setup/configuration
  • Contains driver support for popular Windows and Linux network operating systems
  • Three-year, limited warranty provided by IBM


Protect data and improve performance on your entry server or advanced workstation by using low-cost EIDE RAID storage technology. The ATA133 RAID Controller delivers many basic RAID functions similar to that of higher cost SCSI RAID controllers, but at a fraction of the cost. This controller, combined with low-cost EIDE HDDs, creates an economical, internal RAID storage subsystem for selected eServer xSeries servers and IntelliStation workstations.

Solid, economical function

This two-channel, half-length PCI bus mastering controller supports ATA/133, ATA/100, and ATA/66 HDDs using the following popular RAID levels:
  • RAID striping (RAID 0) - Improves performance by using an array of drives set up as one virtual drive
  • Mirroring (RAID 1) - Provides fault-tolerance for high availability and data protection
  • Mirroring and striping (RAID 10) - Marries high performance with data protection
  • In the event of a failed drive in the array, the ATA133 RAID Controller can rebuild data automatically in the background and load it on a replacement drive. This ability helps:
    • Minimize disruption to network clients
    • Keep your business running smoothly


The ATA133 RAID Controller is easy to install and set up. It contains simple configuration utilities that allow you to tailor your RAID subsystem to support the following features:
  • Boot capability from the RAID configured array
  • Up to four HDDs per controller - Two HDDs per channel
  • Auto-rebuild for data protection
  • Array configuration and monitoring software


  • Supports popular network operating systems
  • Supports a range of high-performance, EIDE ATA-100 HDD options from IBM, up to 120 GB (1)


3 year limited - customer carry in exchange


You will receive one box containing the following items:
  • Controller card assembly
  • Utilities and drivers on CD-ROM
  • Installation instructions and warranty on CD-ROM

(1) When referring to hard drive capacity, GB stands for one thousand million bytes. Total user-accessible capacity may vary depending on operating environments.
