Overview:

Expand Your Horizon

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 supports both internal drive storage and external JBOD expansion, while providing a higher standard of data protection and performance with the latest in LSI RAID-on-Chip (ROC) technology. Using the external SAS ports, multiple JBODs can be connected to a server, delivering a scalable and affordable solution for growing storage requirements.

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 drives 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 compati¬bility 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 self-monitoring technologies and automatic notification services can maximize your storage availability while minimizing the pressure on system administrators.
