If one of the three drives is actually removed, a RAID
controller recreates the missing data in realtime, based on the bits of data remaining on the other two drives.
New Technologies and Demands Stimulating RAID
AMCC will demonstrate its industry leading technology in a RAID
6 performance shootout pitting 8-port versions of AMCC's 3ware 9650SE against a competing SATA II RAID
1 is commonly used to protect critical information by mirroring all data on one drive to another drive to provide higher availability for mission-critical data.
ATTO is bringing more flexible design capabilities to OEMs targeting the emerging SAS/SATA market with its high-performance ExpressSAS RAID
controller adapter for bandwidth intensive IT and digital video applications," said Greg Schulz, senior analyst with The StorageIO Group.
There are three main reasons why companies typically choose to implement a RAID
solution: fault tolerance/data protection, increased system performance, and increased data capacity.
Data-Intensive Environments Look to SATA II with RAID
Each custom processor within the RAID
Storage Processor has its own dedicated memory and data path for code fetch, virtually eliminating interrupts.
Headquartered in Foothill Ranch, California, Aristos Logic creates special-purpose processors and RAID
software that bring new levels of performance, efficiency, features and cost-effectiveness to enterprise storage controllers for networked storage products.
Since MTBF is based on power-on time, it also means that their SATA disks last four times longer than disks in a traditional RAID
array, making it in the ballpark of a SCSI, with 1.
0, the 3ware Sidecar is comprised of a sleek 4-bay, external SATA desktop enclosure; a two-meter external SATA Multi-lane(TM) cable; a 3ware PCI Express to SATA II RAID
controller and RAID
technology is now well understood, as are most of the standard processes within a RAID
controller such as cache coherency, read and write processes, RAID
set rebuilds, volume management, mirroring, and snapshot.
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.
What the storage industry has been missing is a way to combine high-speed cache with low-cost RAID
a leading data storage solutions company, today announced the availability of a new white paper entitled, "Enterprise RAID
