Unmatched RAID Performance for Next-Generation Servers and Storage
The explosive growth of data in cloud and enterprise datacenters is driving the need for a higher performance storage interface to speed the ability of critical applications to access data. Broadcom fi rst-to-market 12Gb/s SAS solutions are designed to deliver the performance and data protection capabilities required for the most demanding next-generation server and storage platforms. Off ering up to double the data transfer rate of 6Gb/s SAS solutions, 12Gb/s SAS allows the SAS infrastructure to deliver bandwidth that can fully utilize that of PCI Express® 3.0 with a single controller card. The MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i, with four internal ports, delivers two 1.2GHz PowerPC® processor cores and a 72-bit DDRIII interface that drives 1GB cache memory. Powered by the LSI SAS 3108 dual-core ROC, the 9361-8i controller includes the latest PCI Express 3.0 and 12Gb/s SAS technology and helps users to support increased scaling of hard disk drives (HDDs) and maximize the performance benefi ts of solid state drives (SSDs).
Enterprise Data Protection
Standard support for the most popular RAID levels and accessories, including RAID 5, RAID 6, and CacheVault® Flash cache protection module, further strengthen the data protection capabilities of the MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i. A new enterprise feature employed by the 12Gb/s MegaRAID SAS controllers is advanced drive diagnostic technology. In the event of a physical drive failure, the drive is placed in a shielded state and the MegaRAID controller starts drive diagnostics to determine if the drive is indeed failed or can be restored. This saves customers time, money and lost compute time associated with transient drive failures and unnecessary drive returns.
Support for Advanced Software Options
The family of 12Gb/s MegaRAID controllers are designed to support Broadcom advanced software options that provide system integrators and VARs with enhanced performance and data protection capabilities. These software options help enable end users to address key business challenges while helping to deliver a higher return on their IT investments. MegaRAID CacheCade™ Pro 2.0 software (optional) and MegaRAID Fast Path software (included) boost transactional I/O performance of solid state disk confi gurations, while SafeStore™ software enables enhanced data protection and security when used with encryption capable devices.
