Data center, IT, and general consumer server environments have a broad range of requirements â€” 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 Adaptec Series 8 12Gb/s RAID Adapter product family directly addresses the connectivity, performance, and data protection needs, unmatched by anything in the industry.
The Adaptec Series 8 RAID adapter family features PMCâ€™s 12Gb/s RAID-on-Chip (ROC), which combines a x8 PCIe Gen3 interface with 12Gb/s SAS ports to enable a new generation of high- performance RAID adapters for the 12Gb/s storage ecosystem. Adaptec Series 8 RAID adapters are available with 4, 8, or 16 native SAS/SATA ports in an LP/MD2 form factor. The mini SAS HD connectors combined with SAS HD cables allow for greater flexibility in configuration options by supporting up to 16 native SAS/SATA ports in a Low-Profile MD2 form factor
New 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).
