F200C is the FC(X2)-to-SAS RAID controller built around with Qsan innovative RAID stack, featuring industry-leading performance on Intel IOP platform. With 2 X 4Gb FC ports connected to the host/FC switch, either working independently or MPIO together, the benchmark data shows up to 70,000 IOPS and the throughput can achieve up to 800MB/sec. The outstanding performance is produced by not only the highly-optimized Qsan storage stack but also strong computing power offered by Intel Xscale IOP341. At drive-side, F200C supports SAS drives, thus SATA compatible. Not only it supports up to 16 drives in single enclosure, there is a SAS JBOD expansion port built-in, connectible up to 4 SAS JBODs and up to 80 drives installed. The SAS interface adds flexibilities, higher performance, and very cost effective expansion. And with the green feature of disk auto spindown supported by Qsan, the whole system including one F200C and four J200C JBOD enclosures with fully loaded 80 hard drives can achieve high power efficiency and save the overall drive power cost. Other useful features in previous products are also included, such as RAID 6, on-line migration, web-based management, snapshot (QSnap) and so on.
