As storage demands expand and processing loads grow, it becomes increasingly more difficult for administrators to achieve maximum performance from their applications. The newest line of Dell PowerEdge RAID Controller cards, built on the LSI SAS 3108 dual-core PowerPC RAID-on-Chip (ROC), offers unmatched I/O performance for database applications and streaming digital media environments.
The PowerEdge RAID Controller (PERC) H730, with eight internal ports, delivers two PowerPC processor cores and a 72-bit DDR3 interface that drives 1 GB non-volatile cache memory. You can deploy the PERC H730 in hard drive-based server environments for significant performance gains. If you are implementing hybrid server platforms based on solid-state storage, these next-generation PERCs exploit the potential of solid-state drives (SSDs) for unsurpassed performance and enterprise-class reliability.
Dell RAID Controller Cards are meant to replace existing RAID Controller Cards that were factory installed at point of sale with the system. They are not intended to be purchased to upgrade a server from Software RAID to Hardware RAID.
