Features:Unmatched RAID Performance for Next-Generation Servers and Storage
Today's data center, cloud and high-performance computing environments not only require increased storage capacity to handle massive volumes of data, but are also challenged to protect and deliver data as quickly as possible to meet the needs of applications and end users. To address these performance demands as capacity scales, the newest 6Gb/s SAS RAID controllers from LSI offer a powerful combination of intelligent performance, enterprise RAID data protection and proven interoperability with the latest server platforms based on the PCI Express 3.0 specification. Available in four and eight port options, these controllers deliver two 800MHz PowerPC® processor cores and a 72-bit DDRIII interface that drives 1GB cache memory. Powered by the LSISAS2208 dual-core ROC, these controllers include the latest PCI Express 3.0 and 6Gb/s SAS technology and are great for configuring external storage enclosures with high-performance SAS hard drives, high-capacity SATA hard drives or application-accelerating SSDs or for building more sophisticated configurations using LSI 6Gb/s SAS Switch products.
