Expand Your Horizon
LSI 3ware SATA+SAS RAID controllers provide a new level of reliability, availability, and performance to businesses that are facing storage challenges, particularly in sequential I/O intensive and multi-stream environments. This 3ware controller, great for inside-the-box connectivity, employs the latest in LSI RAID-on-
Chip (ROC) technology and provides a higher standard of data protection and performance. Offering data transfer rates of up to 6Gb/s per port, the latest generation of 3ware SATA+SAS controllers provide many new features while also ensuring investment protection for existing SATA and SAS implementations. LSI delivers
unprecedented power in multi-stream RAID environments where performance, redundancy, and data protection are most important.
6Gb/s SAS Advantage
6Gb/s SAS is designed for backward compatibility with 3Gb/s SAS as well as with 3Gb/s SATA drives. In addition, 6Gb/s 3ware controllers deliver significant performance improvements in both read and write applications regardless of drive speed. StorSave™ strengthens array performance during peak usage by allowing the controller to use both controller cache and disk cache for RAID operations. Other new features of the 6Gb/s 3ware SATA+SAS controller cards include greater signal integrity using Decision Feedback Equalization, support for more sophisticated SAS topologies using Expander Self-discovery/Self-configuration, and additional safeguards to enhance
3ware’s advanced algorithms allow for optimized reads and writes in multi-stream environments. StreamFusion+ enables higher throughput even in degraded modes to deliver a superior standard of data protection and to boost performance. It is the result of countless hours of engineering aimed at delivering breakthroughs in high-load applications and providing enhanced features and functionality in all environments. Focusing on the latest technology trends and customer requirements, StreamFusion+ firmware reaffirms our commitment to customer success and industry leadership.
