The ARC-12XX SATA ll RAID host adapter is a high-performance PCI-Express bus to SATA ll Disk Array host adapter. The controller can provide up to 4, 8, 12, or 16 SATA ll peripheral devices on a single host adapter. When properly configured, the SATA host adapter can provide non-stop service with a high degree of fault tolerance through the use of RAID technology and advanced array management features. Intel IOP333 processor has integrated the RAID 6 engine inside. It offers Areca the advantage of reduced engineering and development costs, by having the New RAID6 function build-in and integrated part saves on component costs and internal PCI bandwidth. Intel emphasis on architectural commonality in IOPs allows Areca developers to capitalize on their existing code base.
- Serial ATA SupportWith multi-layer SATA connector, the Areca ARC-1220 supports up to 8 SATA II devices for enhanced flexibility and speed.
- RAID SupportThe Areca ARC-1220 supports multi-level RAID configuration including RAID level 0, 1, 1E, 3, 5, 6 (if RAID 6 engine supported) and JBOD for better performance, enhanced data security and flexible capacity upgrades.
- 256MB MemoryThe Areca ARC-1220 features default 256MB on-board DDR333 memory with ECC protection for high data transfer speed and maximum data integrity.
- On-board I/O ProcessorThe Areca ARC-1220 features an Intel IOP333 I/O processor for fast processing.
