ATCA® 10Gb RAID Storage Blade


The SB-ATCA2000 is the second-generation AdvancedTCA carrier blade offers multi-protocol IP storage services, including iSCSI and NAS protocols (NFS and CIFS). Host blades access storage pools at line-rate via 10 GbE fabric or 1GbE base connections. Uses standard 2.5″ disks; install eight compact height (CH) SATA/SSD or four Full height (FH) SAS disk modules, and a 2 disk RTM. The blade features a Nehalem CPU, with ECC (72b) memory implementations protecting both the CPU and RAID cache data. PCIe express x8 Gen-2 signaling interconnects major data path components such as the 6Gb SAS RAID and 10Gb XAUI controllers. IP storage operations may occur over redundant Ethernet Zone-2 fabric connections or redundant 1 Gb Ethernet Zone-2 base connections.
