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 (HA) solutions combine servers into clusters and share storage across a SAN to ensure continuous application availability and eliminate single points of failure. Intel RAID High Availability lowers costs and reduces complexity of HA solutions with fully redundant and simplified storage without the need for storage networking hardware.
