Smart Storage Platform

With the massive growth of data centers, performance, power and reliability are more important considerations than ever. Performance requirements are driven by both the increased adoption of flash-based SSDs and the increasing sizes of HDD arrays. Data centers are looking to take advantage of the performance that these flash-based drives promise, and require storage solutions that can deliver manageability and data availability without compromising performance.

Power is a significant component of a data center’s operating expenses. Optimizing power for cold storage tiers in the data center, for example, delivers substantial benefits to the bottom line.

Data security has become one of the highest priorities for data centers and cloud computing environments as enterprises seek to safeguard customer information, classified company documentation and communications, financial records, employee payroll records, and other confidential data.As more mission-critical data finds its way to data centers, end customers i sist on reduced downtime, improved response times to issues, and a more positive end-user experience overall.

The Adaptec SmartRAID 3100, SmartHBA 2100 and HBA 1100 product families are based on the latest 28 nm SmartIOC 2100 and SmartROC 3100 storage controller integrated circuits (ICs). The SmartRAID 3162-8i /e adapter includes maxCrypto™, the industry’s only data-at-rest controller-based encryption solution that, provides a superior solution over self-encrypting drives.
