Continuing to Fuel Data Center Transformation


Our Smart Storage platform, which consists of our PCIe® Gen 4 SAS-4 Tri-Mode SmartROC (RAID-on-Chip) and SmartIOC (IO Controller) controllers and PCIe Gen 3 SAS/SATA SmartRAIDSmartHBA and HBA adapters, offers the industry’s most reliable storage solutions with best-in-class performance, security and manageability.

Now Available: PCIe Gen 4 SAS-4 Tri-Mode SmartROC 3200 and SmartIOC 2200 Controllers


Our fifth-generation SmartROC 3200 and SmartIOC 2200 controllers are the industry's most versatile, fully featured and secure NVMe/SAS/SATA server storage performance solutions, offering industry-first capabilities and features such as performant NVMe™ RAID, DirectPath technology for low-latency NVMe transactions, and Dynamic Channel Multiplexing (DCM) for efficient aggregation.

SmartROC 3200 RAID-on-Chip Controllers

SmartROC 3200 RAID-on-chip controllers provide a fully integrated PCIe Gen 4 switch based on Switchtec™ technology for minimum latency and maximum performance when connecting to NVMe media. Capable of bifurcations from x1 to x8 when connecting to storage, the SmartROC 3200 is ready for all performance grades and configurations of NVMe SSDs. The SmartROC 3200 supports RAID and controller-based encryption for PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs, SAS-4 media and SATA media. 

SmartIOC 2200 I/O Controllers

SmartIOC 2200 controllers provide a comprehensive feature set for enterprise server data storage solutions and best-in-class performance. These highly integrated solutions offer up to ×16 PCIe connectivity to the host, up to 32 storage lanes and advanced manageability through industry-standard interfaces. As with all of our Smart Storage solutions, drivers for all major operating systems and a comprehensive set of management tools (including a GUI and CLI) are available, enabling unified management across your server and storage infrastructure. 

NEW: SmartROC 3200 and SmartIOC 2200  PCIe Gen 4 SAS-4Tri-Mode Storage Controllers

Performance: Offer greater bandwidth and RAID performance than any other controller available today with up to 28.6 Gbps bandwidth, 850,000 IOPS and 11.7 Gbps in RAID 5, 10.5 Gbps in RAID 6, 17.9 Gbps controller-based encryption and over 3 million HBA IOPS.
  
Security: 
Our hardware root of trust provides a solid foundation to safeguard information and protect against nefarious firmware or supply chain attacks.  We also have the only data-at-rest controller-based encryption for NVMe, SAS and SATA.

Manageability: Our persistent, unified storage management tools, now with streamlined industry-standard storage management capabilities such as Integrated BMC management  features and RDE/PLDM support, make manageability a snap.

Adaptec® PCIe Gen 3 SAS/SATA SmartRAID 3100, SmartHBA 2200 and HBA 1100 Adapters

Adaptec SmartRAID 3100, SmartHBA 2200, and HBA 1100 Adapters

 SmartRAID, SmartHBA and HBA SAS/SATA adapters offer the industry’s most reliable, secure, low-power and high-performance storage solutions. They deliver substantial reductions in operating costs and significant power savings when compared to alternative solutions at equivalent port densities. Unique features—such as maxCache, which allows for Solid State Storage Drives (SSDs) to be configured as cache, and Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection (ZMCP), which enables instant cache protection—also maximize performance. Our entire portfolio leverages core IP with consistent tools and broad compatibility across the product platform to make our solutions easy to deploy and manage.

  • Power: Up to 35% power savings vs. competing solutions and over 40% lower power than prior-generation products
  • Performance: Over 1.7M 4K random read IOPS, a 70% increase over prior-generation products
  • Quality and reliability: Smart Storage stack IP has been deployed on over 30 million servers
  • Familiar tool chains: GUI, CLI and pre-boot tools consistent with prior-generation products
  • Rich portfolio: Broadest portfolio of SKUs provides optimal solution mix for varied storage needs
  • Compatibility: Broad operating system support including inbox drivers
  • Embedded BMC management Firmware: AMI MegaRAC® SP-X firmware integration enables seamless remote management capabilities including platform status, diagnosis and recovery

Adaptec SmartRAID 3162-8i /e:  Technology Leadership with Data Encryption

Solutions for data-at-rest encryption are now a security requirement in many market segments such as healthcare, finance, e-commerce, federal government branches and insurance. These markets constitute a significant overall percentage of the deployed storage. Data center managers face the challenge of safeguarding data while still meeting continually increasing performance demands for large-scale applications, such as web serving, file serving, databases, Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), machine learning and High-Performance Computing (HPC).

The SmartRAID 3162-8i /e, with our maxCrypto™ controller-based encryption, delivers data protection with little to no impact on latency or I/O performance. The 3162-8i /e offers superior advantages over Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs) and integrates seamlessly into existing storage infrastructures, allowing data center managers to deploy a uniform, scalable encryption strategy across the enterprise.

  • First SmartRAID solution with fully integrated ZMCP including onboard supercap to enable cache protection without requiring extra space in the server
  • maxCache 4.0 caching software
  • maxCrypto controller-based encryption with local key management
  • RAID levels: 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60, 1 ADM and 10 ADM
  • 12 Gbps and 6 Gbps compatibility with HDD or SSD SAS/ SATA devices 

New: Adaptec SmartRAID 3100E RAID Adapters

The entry-level Adaptec SmartRAID 3100E RAID adapters are a cost-effective hardware RAID solution. They have been added to our trusted Smart Storage platform to support deployments that use fewer drives and can benefit from caching capabilities but do not need the full cache backup or advanced RAID levels of our full-featured RAID adapters. Some key benefits include:

  • Accelerated storage with up to 2 GB of high-speed DRAM cache
  • Significant power savings as compared to competing solutions
  • RAID levels 0, 1, 10, 1 ADM, 10 ADM
  • Consistent drivers, firmware and management tools for seamless integration
  • Ideal for computing and graphical applications, simple storage subsystems, testing servers, Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals/kiosks and monitoring all types of system and manufacturing operations
