Areca RAID Adapter & Storage Products 

E23 Inc is one of a few Areca distributors in the U.S.

Different from other distributors, E23 not only distributes but also specializes on helping OEMs / VARs / Resellers to design-in and build solutions around Areca's products, and provide excellent support and services. With our technical and knowledge background, we are able to help OEMs / VARs / Resellers to initiate, get, and sustain projects which is most beneficial for OEMs / VARs / Resellers.

Because of E23's "project, solution & support" nature, we carry a few special and purposely made items that are hard to find in the market, see below product list for details.

We are not asking you to switch from your current brands of RAID or your current supplier. We are not competing with other RAID makers/vendors.We are simply filling in the gaps left open by other vendors and suppliers.

We just ask you to give Areca / E23 a try when you find some thing here that fits your needs and it is not available else where, or simply just because you like our services. ( Why Choose Areca? -- Some Facts )
