|PMC’s 12Gb/s SAS Controllers and Expanders Set Performance and Density Records for Cloud and Tiered Storage|
Controllers Deliver Greater than Two Million IOPS and Expanders Provide 68 Ports of SAS Connectivity to Enable Mainstream SSD Deployment
“Building on the market leadership of our 6Gb/s SAS products, PMC is
pleased to announce the availability of the industry’s leading 12Gb/s
controller and expander products,” said
Demonstrations of PMC’s Tachyon® 12Gb/s SAS controllers have delivered well over two million IOPS with a single 16-port controller running small block sequential reads connected to 6Gb/s SAS drives via PMC SAS expanders. PMC’s controllers provide more than double the performance of competing 12Gb/s SAS controllers, which enables OEM storage solutions to fully harness the capabilities of the latest SSDs and improve the performance of large-scale HDD topologies.
PMC’s 16-port controller provides twice the port density than competitive solutions. Combined with PMC’s 68-port SXP 12G expander, OEMs can double overall storage system capacity, while reducing components and saving board real estate and power. PMC’s expanders have 40 percent more SAS ports and can scale to support double the number of drives than competitive products, enabling customers to build solutions that span from entry-level to high-end markets. 12Gb/s SAS provides the increased throughput needed for these scale-out architectures.
Tachyon SPCv 12G protocol controllers
PMC’s 12Gb/s SAS protocol controllers support all of the enterprise-class features that make the 6Gb/s devices the most adopted controllers in external storage systems, including line-rate encryption and hardware acceleration for INCITS industry-standard T10 DIF data protection.
SXP 12G expanders
The SXP 12G expanders leverage PMC’s advanced silicon integration techniques and leading-edge mixed signal design to deliver the industry’s highest port density and best-in-class signal integrity.
SRCv 12G RoCs
The SRCv 12G RoCs integrate the latest in host, drive and memory interface standards with RAID hardware acceleration and an advanced multi-core processor subsystem.
PMC’s 12Gb/s SAS protocol controllers, RoCs and expanders are available now. For more information, including datasheets and pricing, please visit www.pmc-sierra.com/storage or contact PMC at email@example.com.
