THE Astek A3803-cPCI doubles the performance of today's dual channel Ultra320 SCSI HBAs with aggregate I/O port bandwidth of 2.4GBps and full duplex capability. Astek is represented in Australia by Allied Data Systems Pty Ltd.
These adapters are suitable for today's data centres and leverage existing SCSI infrastructure for investment protection and ease of migration.
The serial interface allows point-to-point connection offering higher performance, increased aggregate bandwidth, higher availability with dual ported drives and enhanced reliability compared to parallel SCSI.
The A3803-cPCI supports 3 and 1.5Gbps SAS and SATA hard disk drives.
OS Independent Hardware RAID (0,1) Integrated RAID (IR) provides the reliability and performance benefits of disk mirroring (RAID 1) and striping (RAID 0).
Integrated Mirroring (IM) provides data protection for the system’s boot volume by simultaneously writing redundant data across two to six disks.
Integrated striping yields enhanced performance by aggregating the bandwidth of up to six disk drives.
IR is OS-Independent and does not require the use of special device drivers.
