8 Port 12Gb/s PCIe 3.0 RAID Controller

 

The ARC-1883X is the 3rd generation RAID Controller from Areca offering advanced 12Gb/s SAS technology for increased performance and improved enterprise data protection. Designed with the latest 1.2Ghz dual core ROC processor, DDR2-1866Mhz memory architecture and PCIe 3.0 interface for even the most performance hungry database and IT applications. The ARC-1883X is a low profile PCIe RAID controller with 2x external ports to support up to 8 drives or up to 256 drives using SAS expanders.

Featuring DataBolt Bandwidth Optimizer support allowing the ARC-1883X controller to buffer 6Gb/s data and then transfer it out to the host at 12Gb/s speeds in order to match the bandwidth between faster hosts when combined with 6Gb/s SAS or SATA devices. It also supports failover function for improving system reliability for today's data center and storage subsystems.
