- Storage controller upgrade card
ARC-8028 supports DataBolt bandwidth optimizer to buffer 6 Gb/s data and then transfer it out to the host at 12 Gb/s speeds in order to match the bandwidth between faster hosts and slower SAS or SATA devices. It also supports failover function for improving system reliability for today's data center and storage subsystems. The 12 Gb/s SAS ARC-8028 expander module is designed with an integrated powerful processor for topology management functions such as discovery, enclosure and drive management, and LED management. The ARC-8028 is designed to fit into a standalone box and can be installed in a 5.25" mounting shell. The ARC-8028 is ideal for enclosure customers that want to support up to 24 channels 12 Gb/s SAS.
