LSI Introduces New 3ware RAID Controller Cards Based on 6Gb/s SAS Technology

Maximum RAID 5 Reads: 2500MB/s and Maximum RAID 5 Writes: 1100MB/s, High-performance 3ware SATA+SAS RAID controllers extend broadest portfolio of storage adapters for the channel.


MILPITAS, Calif., January 19, 2010 – LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced a new family of high-performance LSITM 3ware SATA+SAS RAID controller cards based on 6Gb/s SAS technology. The new 3ware 9750 series cards, which are immediately available to indirect channel partners, provide exceptional performance, usability and reliability for small- to mid-sized enterprises, particularly in sequential I/O and multi-stream application environments such as video streaming and data archival.


Designed for inside-the-box connectivity, the low-profile 3ware RAID controllers feature the LSISAS2108 6Gb/s SAS RAID-on-Chip (ROC) and are available in four- and eight-port configurations. The new controllers deliver up to 2.5 GB/s in sequential read and 1.1 GB/s in sequential write performance, more than doubling the data transfer rates of the previous generation products. The controllers are designed to easily integrate with existing 3Gb/s SATA and SAS infrastructure, allowing customers to protect current investments while significantly improving read and write performance.


"Today's announcement demonstrates our commitment to enhancing the 3ware product line with the first controllers based on 6Gb/s SAS technology," said Brent Blanchard, director of worldwide channel sales and marketing, LSI. "The new family builds upon the heritage, levels of performance and usability that channel customers have come to expect from the 3ware lineup."

So, is it better to go for 9750 or 9261 instead of 9260?

3ware SAS 9750-8i 和 LSI MegaRAID SAS 9260-8i 所用既Chipset一樣,都係採用LSISAS2108 6Gb/s SAS RAID-on-Chip (ROC),差別只在Firmware

MegaRAID SAS 9260-8i用既係LSI Firmware,而SAS 9750-8i則繼續用3ware Firmware,如果想在Mac OS X上安裝,就要用3ware

9750-8i同9261-8i layout的確一樣,而9261-8i同9260-8i既分別就係兩個SAS SFF-8087插頭的方向及擺位唔同
