We have a Dell PowerEdge 700 service tag 5JCJW41 for a server with Symantec Backup Exec
2012 installed..currently we use a tape backup (no one around at 2:00 AM to put
another tape in) but would like to try a 2TB USB 3.0 external drive. All the documentation I can find
from Dell only says USB on the motherboard....want to add a USB 3.0 card but not sure if
motherboard will support it...............Thanks Jim
I don't think that what you want, a standard PCI to USB3 card, even exists. I couldn't find it at newegg.
Thanks...the motherboard has PCI-X slots and there is a card for that but the
thruput is only one and a half times as much as a straight PCI . Without a PCI-E
slot we probably will wait for a replacement server...
