VadaTech Quadruples Transfer Rate of AMC Storage Modules with Upgrades
Press release date: June 1, 2014
The first in the line of upgraded storage AMCs is the AMC626. The module meets the AMC.1 specifications for use in MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA systems. It comes in the single module, mid-size and holds a 2.5 inch drive for SATA III at a 6 Gbps transfer rate or SAS-3 for a 12 Gbps transfer rate. The AMC626 has a storage capacity of 900 GB per disk and includes a Host Bus Adapter (HBA). The HBA allows the storage data to transfer across the fat pipe fabric, expanding from 2 dedicated SAS/SATA ports to x8 lanes across PCIe Gen 3. The result is up to four times the data transfer rate across the backplane.
The new storage modules provide RAID 0, 1, 1E and 10 options. This provides striping, mirroring, and mirroring/block-level striping. The AMC626 also includes dual RS-232 and dual SFF-8644 ports for expansion out the front panel providing support for 8 SATA/SAS ports.
