Microchip expands Adaptec SmartRAID product portfolio

Microchip has announced Adaptec SmartRAID 3100E RAID adapters which are designed to provide reliable hardware RAID protection for customer data in cost-sensitive end applications.

According to Microchip, the SmartRAID 3100E provides over 60 percent performance acceleration over its prior-generation Adaptec Series 8E products at 40 percent power savings.

The series joins Microchip’s existing production-released family of PCIe Gen 3 SAS-3/SATA SmartRAID 3100 adapters and the 3100E adapters are designed for systems requiring application acceleration from caching support and entry-level enterprise RAID data protection without the cost of cache protection or advanced RAID levels of full-featured RAID adapters.

Entry-level SmartRAID 3100E RAID adapters are suited for applications such as computing and graphical applications, edge compute and storage nodes, and industrial and manufacturing servers.

Enterprises and cloud service providers now also have the option to update the popular Adaptec Series 6E and Series 8E RAID adapters to the Smart Storage platform for these applications and benefit from the unified drivers, firmware and management tools across the Smart Storage family.

The SmartRAID 3100E adapters share the common Smart Storage deployment tools such as the Adaptec maxView Storage Manager and the new open-source, software-defined storage plug-ins
