ARC-1680LP 8 Port PCIe to SAS RAID-Controller

Areca ARC-1680LP
Areca ARC-1680LP

Areca’s high-performance PCIe to SAS RAID host adapter can provide up to 128 SAS/SATA II peripheral devices using SAS expanders.

The adapters are based on the same RAID kernel of field-proven external RAID adapter.

Applications that benefit most features from these controllers include NAS, server RAID solutions, web servers, supercomputing, near-line backup, security systems and streaming applications.

Features and Benefits

  • 3Gbit/s speed at each port
  • 512MB DDR2-533 cache
  • Intel RAID engine to support highest speed RAID 6
  • Online capacity expansion, RAID level/stripe size migration
  • Online volume set growth
  • Redundant flash image for adapter availability
  • Support greater than 2TB per volume set
  • Battery backup module optional (BBM)
  • Serial bus and SGPIO enclosure management
  • Broad operating support including Windows, MAC OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris and more systems
