The explosive growth of data in cloud and enterprise datacenters is driving the need for a higher performance storage interface to speed the ability of critical applications to access data. Avago 12Gb/s SAS solutions are designed to deliver the performance and data protection capabilities required for the most demanding next-generation server and storage platforms. Offering up to double the data transfer rate of 6Gb/s SAS solutions, 12Gb/s SAS allows the SAS infrastructure to deliver bandwidth that can fully utilize that of PCI Express 3.0 with a single controller card. The MegaRAID SAS 9361-4i, with four internal ports, delivers two 1.2GHz PowerPC processor cores and a 72-bit DDRIII interface that drives 1GB cache memory. Powered by the LSI SAS 3108 dual-core ROC, the 9361-4i controller includes the PCI Express 3.0 and 12Gb/s SAS technology and helps users to support increased scaling of hard disk drives (HDDs) and maximize the performance benefits of solid state drives (SSDs).
