TAIWAN: LSI Corp. is showcasing industry first-to-market 12Gb/s SAS solutions together with SSDs driven by award-winning LSI SandForce Flash storage processors.
The performance demonstration at the annual LSI APAC Storage Forum brings together the LSI 12Gb/s SAS I/O controller and the LSI 12Gb/s SAS expander, connected to 6Gb/s SATA SSDs from multiple customers and SandForce Driven members, including ADATA, Kingston and Transcend.
The LSISAS3008 I/O controller along with the LSISAS3x48 SAS 12Gb/s expander deliver the end-to-end 12Gb/s enterprise performance that next-generation servers and storage systems require. The demonstration shows performance throughput of over 6,000MB/s sustained reads across twelve 6Gb/s SATA SSDs.
To take advantage of 12Gb/s speeds with existing 6Gb/s drive infrastructure, the demo features LSI DataBolt technology. DataBolt technology, when combined with the extended bandwidth of PCIe 3.0, is designed to deliver double the throughput performance today while using 6Gb/s SAS or SATA drive solutions.
DataBolt technology provides unmatched flexibility to adapt to future changes, and that helps protect customers' HDD and SSD investments.
