Product Overview The Intel® RAID Controller RS25AB080, powered by LSI* MegaRAID technology, offers exceptional performance, scalability, and configuration flexibility making it the perfect choice for l/O and throughput intensive applications. The Intel RS25AB080 delivers eight internal ports, two 800MHz processor cores, and a 72-bit DDRIII interface that drives 1GB cache memory. Furthermore, the Intel RS25AB080 comes with a Maintenance Free Backup Unit that utilizes NAND flash memory and a super-capacitor to help protect data stored in the controller cache. The benefits of this technology are elimination of hardware maintenance associated with LiON batteries, lower total cost of ownership over the life of the adapter, and more environmentally friendly cache protection. Users can deploy the Intel RS25AB080 in existing HDD-based server environments for significant performance gains. Alternatively, for users implementing server platforms based on solid-state storage, these next-generation controllers exploit the potential of SSDs for new levels of performance accompanied by enterprise-class reliability. All Intel RAID solutions are validated across multiple platforms with Intel® boards, chassis, and systems. Customized training, as well as Intel® service and support, make Intel the one source for customers seeking data protection, increased productivity, and simplified IT.
