The new SAS card makes inroad networks into the SCSI market faster and better. The SAS provides connectivity that is expandable and its scalability better than the previous. The 3ware offers better configuration that has better flexibility with other four PCI express with low profile controlling choices. The 3ware compatibility with the industry's SAS expanders will definitely maximize the scalability. Each of the SAS controllers scales and supports the SAS 128 with other SATA devices. The user has the option using the RAID management software and interface that assures a perfect picture configuration with the full experience of the RAID without the interference of the storage interface. The new 3ware has advanced architecture that supports SATA II and SAS to their full performance including the usage of the 3GB and NCQ features. Both NSQ and 3GB help in the busting of the RAID feature on the 3ware.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The 3ware SAS technology is the most preferred interface for the attaching direct server space. SCSI mainstay is for the critical applications that may require levels that are high for native expansion and availability. The 3ware is optimized for the performance requirements of data that may be random and always centralized. The 3ware performance makes the SCSI controller ideal for replacement due to the architecture. The network card has the 8th generation storswitch that helps in the non-blocking of the architecture switch. The 3ware has an onboard RISC processor that works hand in hand with the RAID to offload the hardware raid. The 3ware comes with a bootable array that supports the user's operating system. The 3ware supports the 2TB technology which works with a 512 MB DD R2 memory that has ECC protection. The 3ware comes with a disk drive that has SAS expanders. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AMCC 3ware 9690SE SATA/SAS RAID Controller errors before installing any driver updates.
