Areca ARC-9200 RAID controller
Areca ARC-9200

The Areca ARC-9200 RAID head manages a 1 U rackmount, offers new ROC (RAID on a chip) 12 Gbps SAS features and supports SATA and SAS drives as well as SSDs. It is also flexibly and redundantly equipped with three different host port variants. Depending on the version, 2 x 12 Gbps SAS, 2/4 x 16 Gbps Fiber Channel or 2 x 10 Gbps iSCSI ports can be used. If the docked JBOD is equipped with a SAS expander, even the single controller model can manage up to 256 drives. Each controller has already installed two gigabytes of DDR3-1600 RAM, which can be upgraded up to eight gigabytes.

The special functions of the RAID head provide reliability at double assembly, such as active/active and fail-over/fail-back operation. Multi-Pathing and Load-Balancing are also one of his abilities. Finally, the optional flash backup and battery backup modules are also used to prevent data loss.

The ARC-9200 is operated via a browser-based interface. Areca also offers utilities for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, MacOS and Solaris to download.
