Areca Releases ARC-9200 12Gb/s SAS-Based 1U RAID Head


Taipei, Taiwan, - May 4, 2017 - Areca Technology Corporation (ARECA), a leading provider of internal and external RAID controllers, today announced the availability and shipping of ARC-9200, a SAS-based 1U RAID head solution. ARC-9200 RAID head offers a fault-tolerant links across separate host interface, enabling customer to build a fully redundant shared storage and application failover with existing high-density JBOD enclosure.

Powered by Areca's existing external RAID controller design, ARC-9200 is a brand new module RAID head delivering the combination of high performance, high reliability, and data availability required in today’s data-intensive storage environments. The modular design of the RAID head minimizes maintenance efforts, makes installation simpler and easy leverages different JBOD to provide an affordable, highly capable and scalable storage. With either 8 x 12Gb/s SAS ports, 2/4 x 32/16Gb/s fibre channels or 2 x 10Gb/s iSCSI channel host options, the 1U RAID head is an ideal solution to adapt a wide range of applications. Available in single or redundant modular architectures, the RAID head can meet the needs of the professional who needs high-performance versatile RAID storage.



ARC-9200 incorporates onboard high performance 1.2GHz dual core ROC and one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket with default 2GB upgrade to 8GB DDR3-1600, 1RX8/2RX8, ECC SDRAM to deliver true hardware RAID performance. To achieve high availability, critical components such as controllers, power supply units and cooling modules are configured as redundant and hot-swappable capability. The optional flash-based backup module (FBM) provides power to transfer the cache data from the SDRAM memory to the 8GB NAND flash if it contains data not yet written to the drives when power is lost.

Configuration and monitoring can be managed either through the LCD control panel, RS232 port or LAN port. The firmware also contains an embedded terminal emulation via the RS-232 port. The firmware-embedded several available RAID managers include internet browser, CLI, Telnet, API, SMTP and SNMP via a LAN port. The ArcSAP Quick Manager can scan multiple RAID units in the local and remote side and provide an effective management interface for configuration, and monitoring Areca RAID controllers. Firmware and configuration data including vendor identification strings can be customized or tuned for individual OEM/ODM customer.
