Intel RAID high-availability storage solutions, powered by LSI Syncro* technology, provides redundant, shareable, and scalable DAS through a simple, affordable software upgrade to existing Intel® RAID Controllers. Operating on Microsoft Windows Server* 2012, this simple and intelligent failover solution significantly reduces the cost of building high-availability server clusters. It provides a redundant, simplified server failover cluster by combining two storage RAID controllers with two servers. The controllers can deliver high-availability by sharing storage in a dual server to a JBOD configuration or in a single cluster-in-a-box (CIB) form factor.
Traditional high-availability solutions combine servers into clusters and share storage across a storage area network (SAN) to ensure continuous application availability and eliminate single points of failure. Intel RAID high-availability lowers costs and reduces complexity of high-availability solutions with fully-redundant and simplified storage without the need for storage networking hardware.
