(16Gb/s Fibre-to-SAS 1U RAID Head)

ARC-9200 1U RAID head supports flexibility interface configuration; 8 x 12Gb/s SAS ports, 4 x 16Gb/s fibre channels or 2 x 10Gb/s iSCSI channel host and 8 x 12Gb/s SAS ports expander for performance and easy expansion. When used with 12Gb/s SAS expanders, the controller can provide up to (256) devices through one or more SAS JBODs, making it an ideal solution for enterprise class storage applications that called for maximum configuration flexibility.

The RAID head raises the standard to higher performance levels with several enhancements including new high performance 1.2 GHz dual core ROC processor, a DDR3-1866 memory architecture and high performance PCIe 3.0 interface bus interconnection. Each controller includes one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket with default 2GB upgrade to 8GB DDR3-1600, 1RX8/2RX8, ECC SDRAM.
