    Marketing Information

    The Intel® RAID SSD Cache Controller RCS25ZB040 delivers up to 1TB of onboard Flash-based cache and two 800MHz RAID-On-Chip processor cores to help accelerate business applications. The Intel RCS25ZB040, powered by LSI Nytro MegaRAID technology, unleashes the IOPs and throughput potential afforded by solidstate memory without requiring a full array of SSD. As an example of the performance acceleration possible, replacing a standard RAID card with the Intel RCS25ZB040 resulted in a transaction rate of more than an order of magnitude (10x) for a database server in a test environment.

    The Intel RCS25ZB040 utilizes intelligent caching algorithms to help identify frequently accessed data or "hot spots" and to promote them to the fast on-board Flash. SSD Caching RAID acceleration can be more cost-effective than direct attach solid-state drive (SSD)-only arrays or short stroked hard disk drive (HDD) environments.

    All Intel RAID solutions are validated across multiple platforms with Intel® boards, chassis, and systems. Customized training, as well as service and support, make Intel the one source for customers seeking data protection, increased productivity, and simplified IT.
