An eight-port 6 Gb/s PCI Express RAID controller, the Dell PowerEdge RAID Controller (PERC) H710p supports up to thirty-two 3 Gb/s and 6 Gb/s SATA or SAS hard-disk drives or solid-state drives.
As storage demands expand and processing loads grow, it becomes increasingly more difficult for administrators to achieve maximum performance from their applications. The line of Dell PowerEdge RAID Controller cards, built on the LSISA2208 dual-core PowerPC RAID-on-Chip (ROC), offer unmatched I/O performance for database applications and streaming digital media environments.
The PowerEdge RAID Controller (PERC) H710P, with eight internal ports, delivers two PowerPC processor cores and a 72-bit DDR3 interface that drives large cache memory. You can deploy the PERC H710P in hard-drive-based server environments for significant performance gains. If you are implementing hybrid server platforms based on solid-state storage, these next-generation PERCs exploit the potential of solid-state drives (SSDs) for unsurpassed performance and enterprise-class reliability.
