Intel IOC340 I/O Controller Hub
Overview Technical Documents Tools & Software Where to buy
Combining enterprise-class SAS with the power and performance of RAID, the Intel� IOC340 I/O Controller Hub delivers a new level of flexibility and interoperability for storage solutions.
As part of the larger IOP34x product family, the Intel� IOC340 I/O Controller Hub shares a common SAS/SATA control unit with the IOP348 and is pin compatible for design scalability. The IOC340 also supports usage models that maximize its resources as a discrete controller. For use in both direct attached storage and external storage systems, the high-performance SAS/SATA functionality integrated with embedded RAID results in a power-efficient, high-performance I/O controller. In addition, it offers excellent price-for-performance, enabling businesses of all sizes to benefit from the protection, performance, and power of SAS.
