AMI controller links FC and LVD SCSI
American Megatrends Inc. (AMI) last month introduced the MegaRAID Explorer 500 Fibre Channel-to-LVD SCSI external RAID controller. Based on a 64-bit Intel i960RN processor and 64-bit bus architecture, the controller comes in a 3.5-inch form factor with two FC-AL channels for host connections and two Ultra2 LVD SCSI channels for drive connections.
Cache ranges up to 128MB of ECC SDRAM. Features include on-line capacity expansion, RAID level migration, automatic setup/configuration and monitoring.
