MaxConnect MacBook Pro

The 6Gb/s SAS RAID controllers raise the standard to higher performance levels with several enhancements including new high performance ROC Processor, a DDR2-800 memory architecture and high performance PCIe 2.0 x8 lane host interface bus interconnection. The low profile controllers by default support on-board 512MB of ECC DDR2-800 SDRAM memory. The optional battery backup module provides power to the cache if it contains data not yet written to the drives when power is lost. The test result is against overall performance compared to other 6Gb/s SAS RAID controllers. The powerful new ROC processors integrated 8 6Gb/s SAS ports on chip delivers high performance for servers and workstations.

Easy RAID Management

The controllers contain an embedded McBIOS RAID manager that can access via hot key at M/B BIOS boot-up screen. This pre-boot McBIOS RAID manager can use to simplify the setup and management of RAID controller. The controller firmware also contains a browser-based McRAIDstorage manager which can be accessed through the Ethernet port or ArcHttp proxy server in Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and more environments. The McRAID storage manager allows local and remote to create and modify RAID set, volume set, and monitor RAID status from standard web browser. The Single Admin Portal (SAP) monitor utility can support one application to scan multiple RAID units in the network.
