Organizations can now achieve a higher level of storage performance with Intel RAID RS3 controllers, powered by LSI Technology. They are specifically designed to meet the demands of I/O-intensive applications, cloud datacenters and virtualized server environments.


Businesses that use Intel RAID RS3 controllers as the basis for their storage infrastructure can achieve more than 1 million IOPs in JBOD mode. With 12Gb/s SAS-3 technology, it can accelerate business-critical applications in enterprise, Web and cloud datacenters.

12Gb/s SAS-3 technology doubles the available bandwidth of current 6Gb/s SAS solutions and unlocks the full potential of PCI express 3.0-based systems and solid-state storage solutions. Since the greatly improved throughput and I/O processing capabilities maximize link utilization, it supports the highest performance SSD and increased scaling of traditional hard disk drives.

The new Intel RAID 12Gb/s controller RS3 family provides the next generation of storage performance to meet the current and future demands of today’s datacenters. These entry-level controllers are also perfect for 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s, since they provide a faster processor and also allow for 12Gb/s data transfer when teamed with a SAS-3 compliant expander. This provides room to grow by paving the way for 12Gb/s infrastructures as server demands increase and technology progresses.
