PMC to offer highest port count PCIe Gen3 RAID adapters
Michael McManus, DIGITIMES, Taipei [Friday 2 November 2012]

PMC recently introduced its PCIe Gen3 high port-count 6Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID adapters. The Adaptec Series 7 family represents the first RAID adapters to take full advantage of PCIe Gen3 bandwidth for a broad range of enterprise and cloud computing applications. With 16 direct-connected solid state drives (SSDs), Series 7 adapters can deliver up to 450,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) on a 4K random read block size, equivalent to nearly 10x the performance of previous-generation RAID adapters.

According to Jared Peters, vice president of Server Storage Solutions at PMC, the adapters are the industry's first native 16 and 24-port RAID solutions, meaning customers can now directly attach up to 24 SSDs or HDDs with a single adapter, eliminating the need for multi-component architectures and taking full advantage of the latest PCIe Gen3 interface.

The Adaptec Series 7 family offers up to 16-ports in a MD2 form factor and up to 24-ports in a full-height half-length form factor by utilizing PMC's 24-port RAID on Chip (RoC) and High Density (HD) Mini-SAS connectors. Other advanced technologies incorporated into the Adaptec Series 7 family include Adaptec maxCache 3.0; third-generation Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection (ZMCP); new industry standard High Density (HD) Mini SAS connectors and cables; Adaptec maxView, PMC's PM8015 RAID-on-Chip (RoC), which combines an x8 PCIe Gen3 SAS interface with 24 ports of 6Gb/s SAS/SATA; and one click setup capability allowing RAID, simple volume and physical drive configurations.
