  • 1. ADAPTEC SERIES 7 RAID ADAPTERS2nd Generation 6Gb/s solutions with game-changing performance
  • 2. A SHIFTING LANDSCAPE Consumer and business demand for fast and reliable access to data and content continues to grow Data centers are faced with the challenge of meeting this demand while reducing the cost of service (COS) per user, as well as hardware-related Capital Expenses (CapEx), and Operating Expenses (OpEx) Shrinking physical space adds to the challenge as data centers are unwilling to take on more real estate and the costs of powering and cooling larger spaces Clearly, the days of simply adding more servers to accommodate more traffic are over READ MORE!

  • 3. DATA CENTERS DOING MORE WITH LESS As a result, server vendors have introduced smaller, denser, server chassis sizes that help data centers add more storage I/O capability while maintaining the same or a smaller footprint Accordingly, storage vendors are focusing on small form-factor solutions that will fit into the smaller chassis while providing the high performance that data centers require READ MORE!

  • 4. DATA CENTERS DOING MORE WITH LESS Storage components, such as hard disk drives, are getting physically smaller (though increasing in capacity) Low-profile storage adapters are also becoming more common, but only a select few are able to deliver top I/O performance and low latency in a compact form factor This is an important consideration for data centers because finding the right combination of form, fit and function allows them to deploy one SKU for almost any configuration and simplify everything from the purchase decision to installation to maintenance READ MORE!

  • 5. ADAPTEC SERIES 7 RAID ADAPTERSAdaptec Series 7 SAS/SATA RAIDadapters meet the needs of modernspace-challenged data centers bydoubling storage performancecompared to previous-generationRAID adapters while featuring highport counts and low-profile formfactors that reduce latency, realestate requirements and powerconsumption READ MORE!

  • 6. THE NEW GENERATION OF PCIe PCI Express (PCIe) is a motherboard-mounted expansion bus that, through a connected device such as a RAID adapter, connects the host system processor to add-on peripherals, such as storage systems. PCIe Gen3 doubles bandwidth to the host compared to PCIe Gen2, increasing per-lane throughput from 250 MB/s to 500 MB/s. With PCIe Gen2, 8 6Gb/s SAS/SATA ports are sufficient to achieve maximum performance. However, PCIe Gen3 requires a minimum of 16 native 6Gb/s SAS/SATA ports to double the bandwidth through the storage connections. READ MORE!

  • 7. THE PCIe BOTTLENECK A select group of storage adapters that claim to be designed for PCIe Gen3 has appeared the market, but most of them max out at 8 ports and cannot take full advantage of PCIe Gen3’s superior performance (top, right) Competing PCIe Gen3 RAID adapter Only Adaptec Series 7 SAS/SATA RAID adapters, available with 16 or 24 native SAS/SATA ports, are designed to fully exploit the high- performance characteristics of PCIe Gen3 (bottom, right) Adaptec PCIe Gen3 RAID adapter READ MORE!

  • 8. SMALL FORM FACTOR DRIVES: MORESTORAGE, LESS SPACE In recent years, the storage industry has been transitioning from 3.5-inch storage drives to 2.5-inch Small Form Factor (SSF) drives Not only do SFF drives offer the obvious advantage of allowing more drives to fit into the same server rack space, but 2.5-inch drives hold more capacity per space occupied than the 3.5-inch drives they are replacing, reaching 1TB or more READ MORE!

  • 9. THE MOVE TO FLASH STORAGE The cost of 2.5-inch flash-based solid state drives (SSDs) is finally coming more in line with HDDs in terms of the traditional “cost per GB of capacity” metric Combined with a higher read bandwidth, higher input/output operations per second (IOPs), better mechanical reliability, and higher resistance to shock and vibrations compared to HDDs, is driving an industry-wide transition to SSDs READ MORE!

  • 10. PITFALLS OF RAID EXPANDERS As the quantity of drives in a Drawbacks of expanders server chassis increases, the storage adapter card’s port count  Added complexity for the storage requirements also increase solution A storage adapter port count has  Additional cost — about $200 for traditionally been increased the expander itself plus the cost through the use of an expander — of cables plus installation a board that connects additional attached SAS or SATA devices to  Increased power consumption, the system when the adapter does and maintenance costs not have enough ports to  Occasional compatibility issues accommodate them with other storage components However, expanders comes with  Latency and data transfer drawbacks (right) bandwidth limitations READ MORE!

  • 11. THE NEED FOR HIGH NATIVE PORT COUNT These drawbacks have long been tolerated by data centers as they do not noticeably impact the slow read and write speeds of HDDs But the latency and bandwidth issues have become less acceptable with the deployment of higher-performance SSDs An ideal solution would be a high native port count 6Gb/s storage controller that can fully leverage PCIe Gen3’s performance However, most 6Gb/s storage adapters max out at 8 ports READ MORE!

  • 13. ADAPTEC SERIES 7 Series 7 RAID adapters feature PMC’s 24-port PM8015 RAID-on- Chip (ROC), which combines an x8 PCIe Gen3 interface with 8, 16, or 24 native 6Gb/s SAS/SATA ports Adaptec Series 7 RAID adapters are the first on the market to take full advantage of PCIe Gen3 performance gains by using HD mini-SAS connectors to offer options with 16 or 24 native SAS/SATA ports READ MORE!

  • 14. SERIES 7 MB/S PERFORMANCE Traditionally, RAID adapter Adaptec Series 7 RAID Adapters performance has centered around read and write throughput, measured in megabytes per second (MB/s) Using this metric, Series 7 adapters perform up to 83% better 83% than competing RAID adapters — 6.6GB/s on sequential reads and up to 2.6GB/s on sequential writes on parity RAID 5 Faster Than competing RAID adapters (MB/s) READ MORE!

  • 15. SERIES 7 IOPS PERFORMANCE With the growing popularity of Adaptec Series 7 RAID Adapters SSDs, input/ output operations per second (IOPs) has become the new performance metric to watch In a RAID 5 configuration with 16 direct-connected SSDs, Series 7 adapters lead the field with 450K 2x IOPs — nearly 10x the performance of previous- generation RAID adapters, and more than double that of the competition* Faster 1% in sales1 Than competing RAID adapters (IOPs)*Using 4K I/O size in random workload scenarios READ MORE!
