PMC Introduces Smart Solutions for Data Center Storage Connectivity

The HBA 1000 series of 12Gb/s SAS/SATA Host Bus Adapters are designed to offer advanced performance and scalability.

PMC-Sierra Inc., a provider of semiconductor and software solutions for networked and server storage applications, has introduced the HBA 1000 series of 12Gb/s SAS/SATA Host Bus Adapters, the first products in PMC’s new Smart family of solutions for high-performance cloud and server storage connectivity.

“PMC’s new Smart Storage Solutions combine over 25 years of Adaptec compatibility with our high-performance and resilient Smart IP that’s based on the industry’s most broadly deployed server stack, running on high-density PMC silicon,” says Pete Hazen, vice president of the Scalable Solutions Group at PMC. “The HBA 1000 products are the first offering in our Smart family, enabling storage connectivity at less than half the power of alternatives.”

With a low-profile MD2 form factor and mini-SAS HD connectors, the HBA 1000 installs into 2U servers for maximum native connectivity in a small footprint with no impediment to air flow, states the company. It is compatible with RAID adapters and expanders for complete scalability to store, retrieve, and manage data across SSDs, HDDs, and tape drives.

According to PMC-Sierra, the HBA 1000 saturates the PCIe Gen 3 bus and delivers up to 1.3 million I/Os per second (IOPS) with SAS SSDs, with 60 percent less power consumption than alternative 16-port HBA solutions. Management and compatibility are further enhanced by supporting both 6Gb/s and 12Gb/s storage components.

The series of host bus adapters is available in five different models, with up to 16 internal or external SAS/SATA ports and supports PCI Express 3.0.

The PMC Adaptec HBA 1000 series is available now through PMC’s worldwide distributors and storage channel partners. For more information, visit
