LSI 3ware SAS 9750-8i
LSI 3ware SATA+SAS RAID controllers provide
a new level of reliability, availability, and
performance to businesses that are facing
storage challenges, particularly in sequential
I/O intensive and multi-stream environments.
This 3ware controller, great for inside-the-box
connectivity, employs the latest in LSI RAID-onChip (ROC) technology and provides a higher
standard of data protection and performance.
Offering data transfer rates of up to 6Gb/s per
port, the latest generation of 3ware SATA+SAS
controllers provide many new features while
also ensuring investment protection for existing
SATA and SAS implementations. LSI delivers
unprecedented power in multi-stream RAID
environments where performance, redundancy,
and data protection are most important.
6Gb/s SAS Advantage
6Gb/s SAS is designed for backward compatibility with 3Gb/s SAS as well as with 3Gb/s SATA
drives. In addition, 6Gb/s 3ware controllers
deliver significant performance improvements
in both read and write applications regardless
of drive speed. StorSave™ strengthens array
performance during peak usage by allowing
the controller to use both controller cache
and disk cache for RAID operations. Other
new features of the 6Gb/s 3ware SATA+SAS
controller cards include greater signal integrity
using Decision Feedback Equalization, support
for more sophisticated SAS topologies using
Expander Self-discovery/Self-configuration,
and additional safeguards to enhance
data protection.
StreamFusion™+ Performance
3ware’s advanced algorithms allow for
optimized reads and writes in multi-stream
environments. StreamFusion+ enables
higher throughput even in degraded
modes to deliver a superior standard of
data protection and to boost performance.
It is the result of countless hours of
engineering aimed at delivering breakthroughs in high-load applications and
providing enhanced features and functionality
in all environments. Focusing on the
latest technology trends and customer
requirements, StreamFusion+ firmware
reaffirms our commitment to customer
success and industry leadership.
Remote Creation, Management and
Monitoring with 3DM2™
3DM2 is powerful remote management
software that simplifies the configuration,
management and monitoring of 3ware storage
arrays. 3DM2 provides an intuitive interface
to remotely create, manage and monitor your
3ware RAID arrays and single disks in a robust,
secure array management environment
for your RAID protected data. Proven selfmonitoring technologies and automatic
notification services can maximize your
storage availability while minimizing the
pressure on system administrators.
