3ware 9650SE-4LPML SATA II PCI-Express Hardware RAID Card
The Best Keeps Getting Better The 3ware 9650SE PCI Express to SATA II RAID controller pushes AMCC’s established leadership in RAID controller performance to new heights. While 3ware controllers continue to lead the market in RAID 5 performance, the 3ware 9650SE outshines the competition as the new standard bearer for RAID 6 performance, delivering over 700MB/s RAID 6 reads and 600MB/s RAID 6 writes.

The 3ware 9650SE offers the most comprehensive line of PCI Express controllers, available in both low profile and full height footprints with 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, and 24-port configurations. All 4-port and above models feature 3ware’s award-winning Multi-lane connectivity. The 9650SE supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, Single Disk, and JBOD.

Red Hot RAID 6
RAID 6 eliminates the risk of data loss if a second hard disk drive fails while the RAID array is rebuilding. In a 3ware RAID 6 system, two sets of parity are simultaneously calculated, written, and rotated across all the drives. This second parity calculation enables the array to survive up to two drive failures without losing data, significantly improving fault tolerance. The 3ware parallel XOR RAID 6 parity generation algorithm maximizes RAID 6 throughput, so that RAID 6 enabled 9650SE controllers deliver unequaled RAID 6 performance.

Get Connected via the Multi-lane Expressway
AMCC’s award winning Multi-lane high bandwidth SATA connection system is fast, secure, simple, and clutter free. Multi-lane combines four SATA ports into a single locked connection. Four lanes of high speed SATA traffic travel through just one cable, significantly reducing the number of cables needed to connect controllers, backplanes, and standard SATA drives. A 16-port Multi-lane controller needs only four cables, compared to sixteen cables with discrete solutions, for dramatically better reliability, airflow and convenience.

Enterprise-class RAID Storage
The 9650SE’s advanced RAID features, SATA II connectivity, and powerful 3ware performance architecture make it the ideal controller for vertical applications that require the highest levels of sustained write and read performance including NAS storage, web servers, cluster servers, supercomputing, near-line backup and archival, security systems, pro audio and video applications, and other demanding storage applications that need high-bandwidth, highcapacity sequential performance.
