Ciprico Inc. (St. Louis Park, Minn.) offers its RAIDCore host bus adapter (HBA) in a storage server capable of exceeding 2.2 gigabytes per second of throughput. The 24-drive array using Hitachi Global Storage Technologies' UltrastarTM SAS hard disk drives spans across three economical RAIDCore SAS/SATA HBAs, enabling sustained high performance operation, significantly higher capacity, and superior data management. High-performance computing (HPC) is often gated by the disk I/O subsystem's ability to process tremendous amounts of data at sufficient speeds. Using RAIDCore spanning technology, multiple RAIDCore HBAs can be aggregated to build single, flat RAID arrays of up to 32 terabytes resulting in greater performance, superior management, and improved storage density, while eliminating the I/O bottleneck. This contrasts with other storage HBAs that either aggregate all traffic through a single controller creating a bottleneck both on the PCI Express bus and in the controller's onboard CPU; or force users to stripe across RAID storage arrays using the operating system, causing performance and management issues, as well as decreased storage utilization.www.ciprico.com
