LSI Logic Corp. announced that its MegaRAID embedded SATA software RAID was chosen by Supermicro Computer for integration onto its P8SCT to enable the channel, SIs and VARs with a SATA-optimized workstation or 1U 4-drive server/storage solution.

Tau Leng, director of system validation and qualification at Supermicro, said, "As serial ATA technology becomes more and more mature, the use of our SATA-optimized workstations and servers has expanded into more serious computing or enterprise environments. The channel can deliver cost-effective SATA solutions, including on-board RAID 10 support and hot-swap functionality to their customers and grow the business in a much wider range."

MegaRAID SATA Software offers RAID support even before the operating system is loaded, which provides customers with a differential benefit in the market with BIOS boot protection. In addition, because it does not use the motherboard's PCI resources, slots can be available for other critical purposes. The newest generation to the MegaRAID SATA software RAID family features hot device insertion and removal support, hot spare configuration and soft bad block management. MegaRAID SATA software also features the MegaRAID management software suite, which provides users with flexible management and consists of a complete set of OS-level RAID management tools.
