RAIDCore under the bonnet of AMD A-Series APU

Written by Nick Farrell



More robust than RAID-on-motherboard


Dot Hill has announced that its AssuredVRA virtual RAID adapter software, branded RAIDCore, will be a part of AMD’s A-Series APU chipset.

Dubbed AssuredVRA it is intended to provide more robust functionality than hardware RAID-on-motherboard (ROMB) solutions while keeping costs below dedicated RAID controller cards. Dot Hill said that it had developed its Virtual RAID Adapter (VRA) technology portfolio to appeal to designers of entry- to mid-level systems. This is because a virtual system can provide features usually associated with higher cost RAID solutions. VRAs can also require less power and cooling, further reducing costs when dedicated RAID hardware is not necessary.

A Dot Hill spokesman said that the company will offer reference designs for AssuredVRA driver and web-based management for embedded, notebook, desktop, and server systems to manufacturers that use supported AMD core logic chipsets. AssuredVRA supports the built-in core logic SATA ports that come as part of these systems, enabling vendors to add RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 capabilities to unused built-in SATA controllers.

AssuredVRA Virtual RAID Adapters are capable of managing RAID sets on both core logic SATA and SAS/SATA I/O controllers. They also offer a single, unified O/S driver and single-pane web-based management suite. It can provide bative support for multiple motherboard vendors that use supported AMD chipsets and can run Windows Vista, 7, and 8; Ubuntu Client; and SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11.
