WHY: Today's big data applications require the highest levels of
density, flexibility and performance that traditional data center
solutions cannot provide. Adaptec
by PMC®, Seagate
will showcase two cutting-edge storage solutions that are critical to
meeting current demands of storage system administrators.
WHAT: Adaptec (News - Alert) by PMC will demonstrate its Series 8 12Gb/s SAS
RAID adapter with integrated Zero
Maintenance Cache Protection (ASR-81605ZQ)
Plus, its advanced caching and Tiering software. The demonstration
features a two-tiered storage solution comprised of 12Gb/s SAS SSDs and
HDDs. The performance tier is based on Seagate's (News - Alert) 1200 12Gb/s SAS SSDs,
which accelerates a second tier of Seagate Enterprise-class
Constellation.2 SATA HDDs. Adaptec maxCache Plus tiering functionality
and the redundant storage pools are both managed through Adaptec's
maxView Storage Manager.
8 adapter family, including a new 4-port RAID adapter (ASR-8405
available in May 2014), enables denser, faster and more configurable
storage environments, which translates directly into faster data
delivery and access. Innovations like the maxCache Plus™ tiering
capability for Series 8 help data center architects get the most value
and performance out of their storage assets.
A second demonstration will feature a redundant high-availability
cluster based on a Windows Storage Spaces™ Software Defined Storage
solution powered by an Adaptec by PMC 12Gb/s SAS HBA connected via PMC's
12Gb/s SAS expander. A Chenbro external high-density storage solution
(RM43260) connects to two server nodes with a prototype HBA solution
based on PMC's 12Gb/s RoC technology, which combines basic RAID to boot
the server systems and full HBA functionality on one adapter card.
