PetaStor Moves on to Alnico Gen2 AN-8 12Gb/s SAS JBOD Series Taipei, Taiwan—July 21, 2015

The AN-8 JT Series provides double bandwidth and throughput to meet the demands of virtualized server environment, enterprise-class storage applications, and I/O-intensive workloads. Each AN-8 JT JBOD controller has built-in three 12Gb/s mini SAS HD port, providing connectivity for one upstream (4x 12Gb) host with dual downstream (4x 12Gb) expansion.

The AN-8 JT allows user to take advantage of 12 GB/s speeds while using existing 6Gb/s backplanes. In addition, AN-8 JT incorporates the latest enhancements in SAS along with new LSI DataBolt bandwidth optimizer technology. Using DataBolt, the subsystem buffers 6Gb/s data and then transfers it out to the host at 12Gb/s speeds in order to match the bandwidth between 12Gb/s hosts and 6Gb/s SAS or SATA devices. The DataBolt feature enables existing AN-6 and AN-7 6Gb/s drives and backplanes to 12 GB/s SAS performance.
