The Dell EMC PowerEdge RAID Controller (PERC) H840 is an eight-port (2-x4 connectors) external 12Gb/s SAS solution for performance-hungry external storage environments supporting up to 192 SAS hard-disk drives or solid-state drives.
As storage demands expand and processing loads grow, it becomes increasingly more difficult for administrators to achieve maximum performance and scale from their applications. The newest line of Dell EMC PERC cards, built on the LSI 3508 dual-core ARM A15 RAID-On-Chip (ROC), offer unmatched I/O performance for database applications and streaming digital media environments.
The PERC H840, with eight external ports (2- x4 connectors), delivers two high performance ARM A15 processor cores and integrates a 72-bit, DDR4-2133 DRAM interface that drives 4GB non-volatile cache memory. This controller is ideal for configuring external storage enclosures that drives high-performance SAS hard drives and application-accelerating solid state drives. The PERC H840 exploits the potential of 12Gb/s SAS SSDs for unsurpassed performance and enterprise-class reliability.
