PRODUCT BRIEF
Intel® RAID Controller RS2WG160
Business Subject
Intel® RAID Controller RS2WG160
16-Port Internal SAS-2 RAID Controller for Scalable Performance Applications
Product Overview
The Intel® RAID Controller RS2WG160, with
sixteen internal ports, connects up to 16
drives inside the server via direct connection or passive backplane. In addition, this
controller is excellent for growing storage requirements as it can support up to
Key Advantages
128 devices by leveraging SAS expander
technology. Furthermore, the RS2WG160’s
SAS-2 architecture delivers data transfer
rates of up to 6Gb/s per port, and brings
new features and improved performance
regardless of whether the storage solution
utilizes 3Gb/s or 6Gb/s SAS or SATA drives.
All Intel RAID solutions are validated across
multiple platforms with Intel® boards, chassis, and systems. Customized training, as
well as Intel® service and support, make
Intel the one source for customers seeking
data protection, increased productivity, and
simplified IT.
•Exceptional data protection.
Supports data redundancy using SAS or
SATA hard disk drives through mirroring,
parity, and double parity (RAID levels 1,
5, and 6) plus striping capability for spans
(RAID levels 10, 50, and 60).
•Outstanding availability.
Delivers proactive drive monitoring and
automatic error correction. An optional
battery backup maintains the integrity of
data in transit to drives in the event of a
power interruption.
•Excellent performance. Highly scalable. LSI* SAS2108 ROC technology, x8 PCI
Express* Generation 2 host interface and
800 MHz cache enhances the performance
of scalable performance applications.
Capable of connecting up to 16 drives
directly or up to 128 using SAS expanders.
•Support for premium feature upgrades. The RS2WG160 includes a connector for
optional hardware-based keys that easily
plug in to unlock advanced software algorithms designed to improve performance
and enhanced data protection. For instance
the SSD Cache with FastPath* I/O upgrade
allows for using one or more SSD as
enhanced cache for the RAID controller
which can significantly improve performance
of read-intensive applications, such as file,
Web and online transaction processing
servers.
•Easy to use management utility.
The Intel RAID Web Console provides the
essential software interface to efficiently
manage Intel RAID products, whether deployed in an enterprise or small business.
Intel also offers a collection of applications
and tools including a pre-boot setup utility
and a full spectrum of online RAID management utilities.
