As storage demands expand and processing loads grow, it becomes increasingly more difficult for administrators to achieve maximum performance and scale from their applications. The newest line of LSI MegaRAID 6Gb/s SATA+SAS controller cards, built on the LSISAS2208 dual-core ROC, offer unmatched I/O performance for database applications and streaming digital media environments. The MegaRAID SAS 9285-8e, with eight external ports, delivers two 800MHz PowerPC processor cores and a 72-bit DDRIII interface that drives 1GB cache memory. This controller is ideal for configuring external storage enclosures with high-performance SAS hard drives, high-capacity SATA hard drives or application-accelerating solid state drives (SSDs) or for building more sophisticated configurations using LSI 6Gb/s SAS Switch products. Users can deploy the MegaRAID SAS 9285-8e in existing HDD-based server environments for significant performance gains. Or for users implementing hybrid server platforms based on solid-state storage, these next-generation MegaRAID controllers exploit the potential of SSDs for unsurpassed performance and enterprise-class reliability.
The LSI family of 6Gb/s MegaRAID controllers are designed to support advanced software options that provide white box channel partners with enhanced performance and data protection capabilities. These new software options allow end users to address key business challenges while helping to deliver a higher return on their IT investments. MegaRAID CacheCade software and MegaRAID FastPath software boost transactional I/O performance of solid state disk configurations, while MegaRAID Recovery software and MegaRAID SafeStore software enable enhanced data protection and security.
Standard support for the most popular RAID levels and accessories, including RAID 5, RAID 6 and battery backup, further strengthen the data protection capabilities of the MegaRAID SAS 9285-8e. The new intelligent LSIiBBU09 battery backup unit uses heat-tolerant cell technology to withstand ambient temperatures up to 55 degrees Celsius while protecting the integrity of cache in the event of a power or server failure. This resistance to a high-temperature environment along with remote mounting options gives system builders the flexibility to place the LSIiBBU09 away from thermal hot spots in multiple locations throughout the chassis.
The MegaRAID SAS 9285-8e can easily be connected and deployed within new 6Gb/s SAS Switch environments to further simplify DAS scale management and reduce single point of failures common in expanded DAS environments. The 9285-8e and LSI SAS Switch products are uniquely positioned to offer higher levels of connectivity, simplified management and features and benefits typically available only in higher end Storage Network configurations.
