Areca Releases GbE(x4)/6Gbps eSATA/USB 3.0 Multiple Host RAID Controllers


Taipei, Taiwan January. 18, 2016 - Areca Technology Corporation (ARECA), a leading provider of internal, external SAS or SATA RAID controllers, today announced the ARC-5066 a 12/16/24-bays external cable solution 6Gb/s SATA RAID controllers. The ARC-5066 unleashes a truly innovative multiple hosts (with 1 x 6.0Gbps eSATA, 4xGbE iSCSI and 1xUSB3.0) solution for different cost-effective RAID applications. High transfer rates and more SATA disk channels make the ARC-5066 RAID controller well suited for cost-effective and high capacity application, especially the rapidly growing demand from the Vmware ESX server external storage, DVR markets and cold storage.

The ARC-5066 incorporates onboard 1.2GHz storage processors and 2GB on-board DDR3-1200 SDRAM memory to offer high-performance with the added advantage of central management and RAID protection. It can be configured to RAID levels 0, 1, 10, 1E, 3, 5, 6, 00, 100, 30, 50, 60, Single Disk or JBOD function selection for data protection. Configuration and monitoring can be managed either through the LCD control panel, RS232 port or Ethernet port. The firmware-embedded several available RAID managers include internet browser, CLI, Telnet, API, SMTP and SNMP via a LAN port.

The ARC-5066 is designed with quad GbE host ports for a cost-effective and shared storage solution with Link Aggregation (LACP, Trunking), Multi-Path IO (MPIO), and iSCSI Multiple Connection per Session (MC/S) support. The one port iSCSI host interface can reach speeds as high as 108MB/S write and 107MB/S read on a RAID 5 volume. The eSATA port delivers in excess of 433MB/S reads and over 393MB/S writes while drives configured as a RAID 5 volume. USB3.0 port delivers high-speed performance with speeds of 345MB/S read and 355MB/S write on a RAID 5 volume.
