As data continues to grow at an unprecedented pace, mainstream server environments that include database servers, e-mail servers, and Web servers need a higher level of performance and scalability. Now with the Intel RAID Controllers RS3DC080, powered by LSI MegaRAID technology, organizations get next generation SAS 3.0 12 GB/s performance, enterprise-class data protection and scalability designed for mainstream server environments. Featuring more than 750K RAID 5 TOPS - more than 60 percent improvement over the previous generation - and 6.000 MB/s throughput performance for streaming applications, these RAID adapters unleash the full potential of enterprise PCIe 3.0 systems.
The Intel RAID Controllers RS3DC080 doubles the available bandwidth of current 6 GB/s SAS solutions, and offers a higher level of RAID performance and security compared to entry-level products. They feature eight and four internal ports respectively, deliver two 12 GHz processor cores and 72-bit DDRIII interface that drives 1 GB cache memory at 1866 MHz. They support 8 PCI Express lanes that comply with the latest PCI Express 3.0 specification with 8 gigatransfers per second (GT/s) per lane. Plus, each adapter supports 8 individual SAS ports operating at 12 GB/s.
The Intel RAID Web Console 2 included in these adapters enhances RAID volume creation by empowering administrators to further optimize their storage for application performance and data protection. With an intuitive graphical user interface, this Intel RAID Web Console 2 deploys all the critical system storage functions and helps eliminate complexity and learning curves. Plus, since all Intel RAID solutions are validated across multiple platforms with Intel boards, chassis, and systems, when used together they deliver the best combination of performance, built-in.
Exceptional data protection
It supports data redundancy using SAS or SATA hard disk drives through mirroring, parity, and double panty plus striping capability for spans.
A dual core LSI SAS3108 ROC, x8 PCI Express generation 3 host interfaces and 1 GB of 1866 MHz cache enhance the performance of mainstream applications.
Inside-the-box design flexibility
With a true MD2 form factor, this adapter is ideal for low-profile height and half- length adapter slots.
FastPath I/O includedProduct Highlights
