SmartRAID 3100 Series with 8 internal / 8 external SAS/SATA ports in LP/MD2, 4 GB DDR4, integrated cache backup, with up to 1.7 million IOPS.
The 12 Gbps SmartRAID 3100 adapters, coupled with 12 Gbps SSDs, provide maximum read/write bandwidth and IOPS as well as acceleration and latency optimization through caching for the most performance-hungry transactional and database applications. SmartRAID 3100 adapters are full featured RAID adapters offering up to 1.7 million IOPS, available in up to 24 native ports in LP/MD2, and have integrated cache backup and SSD caching on most adapter SKUs. Advancing the performance capabilities of SSD caching to a broader set of application workloads, SmartRAID 315x adapters support read and write-back caching. By caching writes to a redundant SSD cache pool, maxCache 4.0 leverages the performance and latency capabilities of SSD technology for both read and write workloads. The read caching function is also improved with maxCache 4.0, with additional optimizations to the learned-path algorithm and SSD caching software.
