Message Text: LSI Corporation today announced DataBolt bandwidth optimizer technology, a performance acceleration feature for LSI 12Gb/s SAS solutions designed to allow users to take advantage of 12Gb/s speeds while using existing 6Gb/s drive infrastructure.

12Gb/s SAS is doubling the performance of current 6Gb/s SAS solutions, delivering the performance to unlock the full potential of PCI Express 3.0-based systems and solid-state storage solutions.

LSI DataBolt technology is designed to deliver up to a 2x increase in throughput performance for 6Gb/s systems, by agregating bandwidth from 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s end devices o a 12Gb/s data stream. The technology also intelligently buffers data and transfer it to drives at speeds that match the performance of the host with slower SAS or SATA end devices. It supports 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s hard disk or solid state drives and utilizes the LSI SAS/SATA bridge technology.

LSI is demonstrating leading 12Gb/s SAS server storage performance utilizing DataBolt bandwidth optimizer technology at the SCSI Trade Association (STA) Technology Showcase on May 9, 2012, at the Hyatt Hotel in Santa Clara, Calif.

The demo consists of a PCIe 3.0-based server with LSI 12Gb/s SAS HBAs connected to multiple 12Gb/s SAS enclosures, including the next-generation Xyratex OneStor storage enclosure supporting 12Gb/s SAS host connectivity. The drive enclosures house a mix of 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s HDDs and SSDs, and utilize LSI 12Gb/s SAS expanders featuring LSI DataBolt technology to achieve significant throughput and IOPS performance improvements compared to an end-to-end 6Gb/s SAS storage solution.

General availability of the LSI 12Gb/s SAS products is expected in the fourth quarter.
