Intel® RAID RS3 Controllers Offer Applications in Enterprise, Web and Cloud Datacenters 12Gb/s performance

December 9, 2013 by  

Web Hosting Services – Organizations can now achieve a higher level of storage performance with Intel® RAID RS3 controllers, powered by LSI* Technology. They are specifically designed to meet the demands of I/O-intensive applications, cloud datacenters and virtualized server environments.

Businesses that use Intel® RAID RS3 controllers as the basis for their storage infrastructure can achieve more than 1 million IOPs in JBOD mode1. With 12Gb/s SAS-3 technology, it can accelerate business-critical applications in enterprise, Web and cloud datacenters.

12Gb/s SAS-3 technology doubles the available bandwidth of current 6Gb/s SAS solutions and unlocks the full potential of PCI express® 3.0-based systems and solid-state storage solutions. Since the greatly improved throughput and I/O processing capabilities maximize link utilization, it supports the highest performance SSD and increased scaling of traditional hard disk drives.

The new Intel® RAID 12Gb/s controller RS3 family provides the next generation of storage performance to meet the current and future demands of today’s datacenters. These entry-level controllers are also perfect for 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s, since they provide a faster processor and also allow for 12Gb/s data transfer when teamed with a SAS-3 compliant expander. This provides room to grow by paving the way for 12Gb/s infrastructures as server demands increase and technology progresses.
