We are expecting to have a PCI-E card for the S2S by the end of June.
Could you send me some details about your config and the performance that you are achieving with the S2S. I am curious to know more about your real world feedback with S2S.

I have been running the Highpoint 2320 8 internal port SATA PCIExpress card in my Quad for a couple of months. The BIG advantage of it is that it has "hardware" definable RAID levels. I have 4 - 500GB drive in a RAID 0 and I am planning on adding another 2.0 TB external, next.
They have recently come out with another like card that has only exernal connections through the Mini-SAS connector that can haul 4- 3 Gbps data streams to four external drives in one cable called an Infiniband cable.
