AMCC Demos Controllers

SAN FRANCISCO -- This week at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo, Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (AMCC) (NASDAQ:AMCC) will demonstrate the industry's broadest line of SATA II hardware RAID controllers designed to provide Linux(R) users with scalable, high performance data protection. In booth 320 at the Moscone Center, show attendees will see the latest SATA and soon-to-be-released SAS RAID products, as well as a demonstration of massive RAID scalability.

AMCC's demonstration will feature two 24-port 3ware 9650SE SATA II RAID controllers connected to 48 Seagate(R) Barracuda ES 7200-rpm drives. The demonstration will show more than 1.2GB/s of aggregated RAID 6 write performance. The PCI Express 9650SE controllers are offered in configurations ranging from 2- to 24- ports giving Linux users the fastest RAID 5 and RAID 6 performance and the broadest flexibility in design.

SAS is now reaching the necessary level of market acceptance to propel the technology into a position of real mainstream customer choice in network storage. The 3ware(R) SAS technology demo at LinuxWorld will show a 3ware SAS controller connected to both Seagate Barracuda ES SATA and Cheetah 15K SAS drives running in a Linux environment. The demonstration highlights the controller's flexibility, and the expandability made possible with 3ware SAS.

"We strive to demonstrate our unequivocal commitment to the Linux community every day," said Scott Cleland, Director of Marketing, AMCC Storage. "3ware controllers feature broader Linux support than any other RAID controller. With embedded Linux drivers since day-1, 3ware controllers have long been the first choice among Linux users."
