The Intel® RAID High Availability storage solution provides fault tolerance capabilities as a key part of a high-availability data storage system. This solution combines redundant Intel® RAID Controllers, computer nodes, cable connections, SAS expanders, and dual-port SAS drives to provide failover redundancy through multiple paths to data.
The redundant components and software technologies provide a high-availability system with ongoing service that is not subject to service interruptions found with non-redundant system configurations.
The documents below provide information on installation and configuration, best practices, and a list of hard disk drives that support the required SCSI-3 persistent reservation requirement.
The Intel® RAID High Availability storage controllers require firmware, drivers and software that support the High Availability Storage functionality. Refer to the installation steps in the driver package readme files.
