Upgrade to the latest NVMe SSD technology and take your game to the next level. Aplicata innovative designs can help you achieve more performance.

The Quattro 400 is a high performance 8-lane PCIe Gen 3 adapter that can host four M.2 NVMe drives. One of the major benefits of building storage solutions based on M.2 form factor is the freedom to freely select the drive vendor, and the ability to upgrade when higher capacity M.2 drives become available. With up to 8TB storage capacity possible today, this card provides scale-out data infrastructures with increased capacity and the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) in the industry.

This adapter features a high-bandwidth, non-blocking PCIe switch that allows the host to communicate with all four M.2 NVMe drives making it possible to use several software RAID levels without compromising performance. Another benefit for having the onboard switch eliminates the need for PCIe bifurcation, which some legacy systems do not support. The switch will automatically support PCIe Gen 2.

This true full-height half-length adapter features a mechanical 8-lane connector which will enable it to fit in the vast majority of consumer motherboards and enterprise servers. For heavy workloads, the temperature of the M.2 drives can become very high which will affect the performance of the drives. To get the full benefit of the M.2 drives, the adapter ships with a passive heatsink to prevent the M.2 drives from overheating and throttling.
