Promise Technology SuperTrak EX8760T/8768 6Gb
SAS and SATA Hardware RAID Controllers
SuperTrak EX8760T/8768 6Gb SAS Controllers are designed to provide high performance and high throughput while
delivering cutting edge features and unparalleled reliability. Built from the ground-up using PMC Sierra's
state-of-the-art 8011 I/O processor coupled with up to 512MB of DDR2 Memory, Promise's world class enterprise
proven RAID Engine and an 8x PCIe Express 2.0 interface, SuperTrakEX 6Gb SAS Controllers are the most versatile and
reliable SAS Controllers in the storage industry today. The SuperTrak EX8760T/8768 6Gb SAS Controllers feature list
is the most comprehensive in the business supporting Hardware Accelerated RAID levels such as RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID
50, RAID 60 in addition to Automatic Array Rebuild, Array Expansion, Array Migration, Bad Sector Remapping,
Dedicated Hot Spares, Hot Plug, Hot Swap, Online Firmware Updates (update from OS), SPGIO for backplane management
and SES II for management of external devices such as the Promise J-Class JBOD Subsystem. The Media Patrol feature
allows predictive scanning of hard drives to determine if and when the hard drive may become usable, copying all
data to a designated spare disk before the drive actually fails saving time and potential data loss. Force Unit
Access (FUA) combined with the Battery Backup Unit (BBU) provides the ultimate piece of mind in the event of power
loss. FUA forces all data to be immediately written to the hard drive therefore eliminating the possibility of data
residing in the cache of the hard drive minimizing data loss when the power is interrupted. The BBU ensures that
any data in the cache on the SuperTrakEX SAS Controller is preserved for up to 72 hours on a full charge.
WebPAM Pro is Promise's feature rich Web Management Tool that allows easy and extensive management of Promise
SuperTrak EX8760T/8768 6Gb RAID Controllers. With WebPAM Pro, SuperTrak EX8760T/8768 6Gb RAID Controller features
and functionality can be easily accessed and configured. Need to disable cache on the hard drives? No problem. Need
to setup email notification for critical or non-critical events? No problem. How about monitoring battery charging
status and or checking the health of a hard drive? Once again, not a problem. Customization is critical to
deployment in the field and the SuperTrak EX8760T/8768 6Gb SAS RAID Controllers offers extreme flexible for today's
IT and AV Professionals. SuperTrak EX8760T/8768 6Gb SAS Controllers can easily integrate into a number of
performance demanding environments powering File Servers, Exchange Servers, Transactional Databases and Web
Servers. Audio, Photo and Video professionals can rely on SuperTrak EX8760T/8768 6Gb SAS Controllers to deliver the
performance necessary to meet their rigorous daily routines of editing, manipulating, rendering and storage of
digital content. SuperTrak EX8760T/8768 6Gb SAS Controllers support Windows 2003, Windows 2008 and Windows 7 along
