Product Overview Data center, IT, and general consumer server environments have a broad range of requirements - from basic connectivity to extreme data storage capacities. The effectiveness at which their data is accessed and protected is crucial to their ultimate success. Adaptec 12 Gb/s PCIe Gen3 Series 8 RAID adapters, coupled with 12 Gb/s SSDs, provide maximum read/write bandwidth and IOPS for the most performance-hungry transactional and database applications.

Advancing the performance capabilities of SSD caching to a broader set of application workloads, the Series 8Q with maxCache 3.0 supports read and write back caching. By caching writes to a redundant SSD cache pool, maxCache 3.0 leverages the performance and latency capabilities of SSD technology for both read and write workloads. The read caching function is also improved with maxCache 3.0, with additional optimizations to the learned-path algorithm.

The Series 8 family continues Microsemi Adaptec's battery-free portfolio. Series 8 adapters can be combined with the AFM-700 flash-based cache protection module to enable instant cache protection. The Adaptec 81605Z has flash backup embedded on the board, eliminating the need for a daughterboard and further enabling Microsemi Adaptec customers to do more with less.
