900-gigabyte AMC data storage module with rotating or hard drives introduced by VadaTech
HENDERSON, Nev., 23 June 2014. VadaTech Inc. in Henderson, Nev., is introducing the AMC626 AMC storage module with relatively high transfer rate, RAID, and host bus adapter options.
The AMC626 module meets the AMC.1 specifications for MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA systems. It comes in one mid-size module that holds a 2.5-inch drive for SATA III at a 6-gigabit-per-second transfer rate or SAS-3 for a 12-gigabit-per-second transfer rate.
The AMC626 has a storage capacity of 900 gigabytes per disk and includes a host bus adapter (HBA).
The HBA allows the storage data to transfer across the fat pipe fabric, expanding from two dedicated SAS/SATA ports to x8 lanes across PCI Express Gen 3. The result is up to four times the data transfer rate across the backplane.
The new storage modules provide RAID 0, 1, 1E and 10 options. This provides striping, mirroring, and mirroring/block-level striping. The AMC626 also includes dual RS-232 and dual SFF-8644 ports for expansion out the front panel providing support for 8 SATA/SAS ports.
VadaTech offers storage modules in hard disk drive, CompactFlash, SATA, SAS, and SATA/SAS versions. This includes a mix of 1.8 inch and 2.5 inch sizes and various RAID options. The company also provides the full MicroTCA ecosystem including chassis platforms, MCHs, power modules, JTAG switch modules, and over 200 AMCs of all types.
