MegaRAID Fast Path Software

Turbocharge solid state drive arrays attached to MegaRAID SAS RAID controllers

Currently Viewing:

Top-tier storage solutions often target small, highly random, high-volume workloads, such as in online transaction processing (OLTP) applications. To achieve desired performance, these environments often turn to solid state drive (SSD) arrays. MegaRAID® Fast Path software, working through a MegaRAID SAS controller card, can potentially double the transactional performance of a SSD array using any SSD.
  • Accelerate array performance by up to three times compared to MegaRAID SAS controller cards not using Fast Path software
  • Boost performance of LSI SAS2208-based MegaRAID controllers to more than 465,000 IOPS and LSI SAS2108-based MegaRAID controllers to more than 150,000 IOPS
  • Reduce total cost of ownership by utilizing existing MegaRAID management tools
