LSI Logic Corporation today announced the addition of an intelligent, four-channel IDE RAID host bus adapter to its line of PCI RAID products. The company said the MegaRAID i4 is targeted at cost-sensitive storage environments, offering the same advanced RAID functionality found in today’s high-performance PCI SCSI RAID solutions.
“The addition of a truly intelligent IDE RAID solution to the LSI Logic family of MegaRAID adapters allows us to offer our customers an even broader mix of RAID products,” said Phil Bullinger, vice president and general manager of the LSI Logic RAID Storage Adapters division. “Its extensive OS support and RAID capabilities of 0, 1, 5 and more position the controller to be the industry’s premier high performance, low-cost PCI RAID solution.”
LSI Logic said recent enhancements to IDE disk drive technology and the advanced capabilities of LSI Logic’s i4 PCI RAID solution have opened up new applications for RAID in entry-level servers and workstations.
