The XDAS P-Series is Aberdeen's latest product with breakthrough performance over previous XDAS P-Series. Driven by new generation storage processor, the P-Series is capable of delivering strong data throughput with a single RAID controller. Performance is two to three times better than previous generation P-Series. The robust new performance makes the P-Series an option for applications that call for higher I/O or data transfer rates, at the same time the excellent price-performance of the product line gives customers the best budget-friendly affordability.

Featuring Fibre 8Gb/6Gb SAS RAID subsystems. The 4th generation XDAS P-Series features the latest generation SAS 2.0 technology and implements Quad 8Gb FC hosts or 2 x 6Gb SAS ports as the host interface. This XDAS subsystem series feature strong data reliability and protection for hosts and offers advanced RAID 6 storage support.The XDAS P-Series RAID subsystems features Quad 8Gb FC-AL (SFP) host channels /two miniSAS 4 x 6Gb SAS host and SAS device attachment. XDAS P series features strong data reliability and protection for Hosts and offers advanced RAID 6 storage support.

Coupled with JBODs (via SAS Expanders) supporting up to 122 SAS/SATAII devices connected. XDAS P provides the burgeoning applications like NAS, Sever, medical imaging MOD with the most high-end data security without sacrificing performance concurrency.

Utilizing the most advanced technology LSI RoC 64-bit storage processor, speed performance has really been boosted over previous generations. The P-Series can support up to 24 SAS / SATA II ports to solid backplane, when coupled with JBODs (via SAS Expansion port) can support up to 122 SAS/SATAII devices connected. Ideal solution for enterprise-class storage applications with SAS 2.0 built on parallel SCSI by providing higher performance, improving data availability, and simplifying system design. The SAS interface supports both SAS / SATA drivers for data-intensive applications.
