The ARC-8008 RAID controllers offer a flexibility high-performance external storage solution, enabling OEM customers to build a secure RAID array with their own enclosure.

The ARC-8008 incorporates onboard high performance 1.2GHz dual core ROC storage processor and one 240-pin DIMM socket for single rank,1Rx8, upgrade to 8GB DDR3-1866 or 8GB DDR3-1600, duak rank, 2Rx8, ECC SDRAM to deliver true hardware RAID. The 12Gb/s SAS is designed for backward compatibility with 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s SAS and SATA hard drives. Regardless of the drive speed, 12Gb/s SAS RAID controllers will provide maximum read/write performance improvements for the most performance-hungry database and IT applications.

The ARC-8008 family of enterprise-class controllers come with host connectivity choices of 2-ports/4-ports 16 Gbps Fibre Channel (FC), 2-ports 12Gb/s SAS or 2-ports 10 Gbps iSCSI. The different host interface boards make ARC-8008 RAID controllers well suited for professionals who need large capacity and exceptional performance with connectivity. The optional flash-based backup module (FBM) provides power to the cache if it contains data not yet written to the drives when power is lost. ARC-8008 also supports traditional Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery backup module (BBM) to protect cached data on RAID controller.
