Microsemi Adds New RAID Solutions to Adaptec Product Family for Server Storage

The new solutions are optimized for the latest SAS/SATA HDDs and SSDs, offering high performance and reliability at a low price point.

Microsemi Corporation, a provider of semiconductor solutions, has announced two new additions to its Microsemi Adaptec Series 8 product family. According to the company, the 8405E and 8805E offer server storage customers entry-level systems with redundant array of independent disks (RAID) devices that deliver accelerated performance with built-in cache and uncompromised reliability.

Offering 12 Gbps throughput at each port, the new Microsemi Adaptec Series 8E adapter solutions enable servers and workstations with redundant boot support and input/output (I/O) intensive applications such as databases, video editing, and network video recording (NVR), which require high bandwidth.

“Our new additions to the Series 8 family were driven by customer demand for a true hardware RAID solution at the entry level. We went a step further by providing on-board cache for accelerated performance, making these devices attractive to both current and new customers,” says Pete Hazen, vice president of scalable storage solutions at Microsemi.

Key features of Microsemi’s new 8405E and 8805E include:

  • Hardware RAID 0,1,10 to provide data reliability and performance acceleration for up to four and eight direct attach devices (8405E and 8805E, respectively)
  • Built-in high performance DRAM cache for HDD and SDD performance acceleration
  • Suite of management tools across platforms and operating system
  • Support of SAS/SATA devices

Microsemi’s 8405E and 8805E devices are now available.
