Today the world's biggest OEMs and resellers look to Promise for ongoing innovations in SATA RAID
design as the company continues to lead with the most powerful and economical alternatives to traditional RAID
controllers and systems.
It takes a minimum of three identical drives to obtain RAID
level-5 fault tolerance.
A description of RAID
6 that may soon enjoy wide acceptance was launched in 1997 based on Reed-Solomon coding.
Rackable Systems, a leading provider of servers and storage for large-scale data centers, leverages AMCC's advanced RAID
technology to deliver high performance and reliability in its storage systems.
Originally used in high-end, mainframe and proprietary environments, RAID
is now offered by every disk storage supplier and is a staple in many corporate networks.
Our experience with ATTO products makes the new ExpressSAS RAID
adapter a very encouraging development.
The shift from parallel technology to the emergence of new serial based architectures as new I/O standards for direct attached storage changes the traditional cost/benefit equation, and the addition of powerful, yet cost-effective RAID
capabilities alters the landscape for low-cost server storage.
The simultaneous parity calculation and improved RAID
architecture is what sets the controller apart and is what drives its record-setting performance," said Scott Cleland, director of marketing for AMCC.
A microprocessor would have been interrupted numerous times and had to switch contexts in order to complete this transaction, whereas the RAID
Storage Processor would redirect the algorithms into hardware, thereby minimizing the impact on normal operations.
Aristos Logic's design wins with multiple top tier storage OEMs and ODMs signals an important and inevitable storage industry shift towards partnering with third parties for standardized RAID
functionality," said Steve Foster of TPG Ventures, speaking on behalf of the existing investor group.
systems have become pervasive for data storage.
AMCC's 3ware Sidecar is a true hardware RAID
solution that fills the gap between those extremes.
The monolithic RAID
is the product of a simple progression: small to big.
6 performance demonstration will feature AMCC's upcoming SATA II RAID
controller technology based on its eighth-generation StorSwitch(TM) switch fabric architecture, designed to significantly improve performance, availability and scalability by offloading data I/O from the host.
From the largest data center down to the small office/home office-computing environment, RAID
is becoming ubiquitous.
