Intel® RAID Controller RS3MC044: Solution Brief
Versatile and scalable 12 Gb/s serial attached SCSI (SAS)-3 intelligent RAID controller
With computing needs that change frequently and the continuing trend of explosive data growth, businesses need server solutions with highly versatile and scalable storage. The Intel® RAID Controller RS3MC044 provides versatility by allowing for all c...ommon RAID levels across both internal and external connectors; plus scalability when teamed with expanders or JBODs. Its high flexibility and broad feature set make it an exceptional choice to address the challenges of today’s data center.
The Intel RAID Controller RS3MC044, designed with two 1.2 GHz processor cores, 72-bit DDRIII, and LSI MegaRAID* technology, provides industry-leading benefits such as the ability to support 750 K RAID 5 IOPS and 6,000 MB/s throughput performance when using high performance 12 Gb/s devices. Four internal ports allow for connecting to hard drives or SSDs within the server while an additional four external ports allow for the addition of JBODs to ensure plenty of storage capacity and room to grow.
The Intel RAID Controller RS3MC044 is compatible across a wide range of devices with backward compatibility to previous PCIe* and serial attached SCSI (SAS) generations through automatic negotiation. This allows for SAS data transfer rates of 12 and 6 Gb/s per lane and SATA data transfer rates at 6 Gb/s per lane.
