Broadcom 12Gb/s SAS Solutions; Connectivity Innovation

The explosive growth of data in cloud and enterprise data centers is driving the need for a higher performance storage interface to increase the speed of critical applications to access data. Broadcom 12Gb/s SAS solutions are designed to deliver the performance and data protection capabilities required for the most demanding next-generation server and storage platforms. Offering up to double the data transfer rate of 6Gb/s SAS solutions, 12Gb/s SAS allows the SAS infrastructure to deliver bandwidth that can fully utilize that of PCI Express 3.0 with a single controller card.

Industry’s Highest Port Count RAID Controller

The MegaRAID® SAS 9365-28i, with twenty-eight internal ports in a fullheight form factor, delivers two 1.2GHz PowerPC processor cores and a 72-bit DDR4 interface that drives 4GB cache memory. Powered by the Broadcom SAS3508 dual-core ARM A15 Tri-Mode ROC, the 9365-28i controller can take full advantage of the latest PCI Express 3.0 interface to provide higher performance and increased throughput. The MegaRAID SAS 9365-28i is designed for configuring high-density storage servers with up to 28 drives via direct connection inside the box.

Enterprise Data Protection

The MegaRAID SAS 9365-28i RAID controller supports data retention by using NAND flash memory down on the controller, backed up by a CacheVault Power Module 05 (CVPM05). The CVPM05 module is a supercapacitor pack that provides power for the backup of your data in case of host power loss or server failure. The CVPM05 module is connected to the controller remotely by cable. The data is backed up to the NAND flash memory on the MegaRAID controller board. Standard support for the most popular RAID levels, including RAID 5 and RAID 6, further strengthens the data protection capabilities of the MegaRAID SAS 9365-28i. A new enterprise feature employed by the 12Gb/s MegaRAID SAS controllers is advanced drive diagnostic technology. In the event of a physical drive failure, the drive is placed in shield state and the MegaRAID controller starts drive diagnostics to determine if the drive is indeed failed or can be restored. This saves customers time, money and lost compute time associated with transient drive failures and unnecessary drive returns.
