Areca Releases Cost-Effective 12Gb/s SAS to SAS Rackmount RAID Storage


Taipei, Taiwan, - July 6, 2017 - Areca Technology Corporation (ARECA), a leading provider of internal, external and Thunderbolt RAID storage, today announced its 12Gb/s SAS to SAS rack-mounted ARC-72xx RAID storage. ARC-72xx RAID subsystem is a family of 8/12/16 12.0Gbps SAS hard drive ports depending upon the amount of storage required. ARC-72xx is designed to provide a truly innovative 12Gb/s SAS host interfaces to address the needs of different cost-effective RAID storage requirements. When properly configured, the RAID subsystem can provide non-stop service with a high degree of fault tolerance through the use of RAID technology and advanced array management features.

On the hardware side, ARC-72xx SAS RAID subsystems raise the standard to higher performance levels with several enhancements including new high performance 1.2GHz dual core ROC processor, a DDR3-1866 memory architecture and 12Gb/s SAS technology. The subsystem each includes 2GB DDR3-1866 and ECC SDRAM. It can be configured to RAID levels 0, 1, 10, 1E, 3, 5, 6, 30, 50, 60, Single Disk or JBOD. The optional flash based backup module provides power to transfer the cache data from the SDRAM memory to the NAND flash memory if it contains data not yet written to the drives when power is lost. Board-level hardware encryption manages any kinds of drives attached to ARC-72xx without impacting the performance for higher levels of security.

This RAID controller utilizes the same RAID kernel that has been field-proven in existing internal/external SATA/SAS RAID controller products, allowing customers to bring stable and reliable SAS RAID external subsystem. Configuration and monitoring can be managed either through the LCD control panel, RS232 port or LAN port. The firmware also contains an embedded terminal emulation via the RS-232 port. The firmware-embedded several available RAID managers include internet browser, CLI, Telnet, API, SMTP and SNMP via a LAN port.
