Data center, IT, and general consumer server environments have a broad range of requirements - from basic connectivity to extreme data storage capacities. The effectiveness at which their data is accessed and protected is crucial to their ultimate success. The Microchip Adaptec Series 8 12 Gb/s RAID Adapter product family directly addresses the connectivity, performance, and data protection needs, unmatched by anything in the industry.
The Microchip Adaptec Series 8 RAID adapter family features PMC's 12 Gb/s RAID-on-Chip (ROC), which combines a x 8 PCIe Gen3 interface with 12 Gb/s SAS ports to enable a generation of high-performance RAID adapters for the 12 Gb/s storage ecosystem.
- 12 Gb/s throughput at each port
- PMC 12 Gb/s RAID-on-Chip (ROC)
- SAS 3.0 interface and PCIe Gen 3 host connection
- Auto configuration of simple volume and HBA modes - "set it and forget it"
- Mini SAS HD connectors and SAS HD cables - for fit and function in dense server configurations
- Support for up to 256 SAS and SATA devices
- Support for SSD, HDD, autoloader, RBOD, tape
- High levels of performance
Series 8 adapters perform at up to 6.6 GB/s on sequential reads and up to 6.2 GB/s on sequential writes. With 16 direct-connected solid-state drives (SSDs), Series 8 adapters deliver more than 700K IOPS.
- Advanced data protection
Adaptec RAID Code (ARC) delivers maximum reliability with RAID levels 0, 1, 1E, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60. ARC also offers RAID level migration (the ability to easily migrate RAID levels), online capacity expansion (expand capacity without powering down the server), and copyback hot spare (when a failed drive has been replaced, data is automatically copied from the hot spare back to the restored drive). Additionally, the auto configuration capability allows users to operate in HBA mode (expose drives to the host directly) or simple volume mode (use fast DRAM cache to reduce latency and improve performance), without the need to use setup tools. In RAID mode, they can mix and match all devices and handle them at the same time.
- Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection (ZMCP)
Series 8 adapters can be combined with our third-generation AFM-700 flash-based cache protection module to enable instant battery-free cache protection. Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection (ZMCP) is a revolutionary advancement that solves BBU deficiencies by providing full protection to cached data with no monitoring, maintenance, disposal, or replacement costs. ZMCP features SLC based NAND flash memory with super capacitor technology. During a system power loss, the flash memory-based cache protection can preserve data for years.
- Adaptec maxView storage manager
Adaptec maxView storage manager provides the powerful features of Adaptec storage manager in an HTML5 web interface that can be viewed in standard desktop or mobile browsers without the need for separate software installation.
