INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, San Francisco,
Sept. 27, 2006 - Intel Corporation today introduced a family of storage
processors that serve market segments ranging from small- to
The IntelÂ® IOP34x Family integrates
advanced data protection, hardware-based RAID 5/6 (redundant array of
independent disks), multiple high-performance Intel XScaleÂ® processor
cores and support for high-speed serial-attached SCSI (SAS) and serial
ATA (SATA) interfaces in processors and controllers for server direct
attached and external storage products. Developers designing these
flexible, pin-compatible processors into their storage solutions
benefit from reduced engineering investments, proven interoperability,
lower system costs and a time-to-market advantage.
'This new family of processors provides
the storage industry with unprecedented product and interface design
flexibility,' said Hans Geyer, vice president and general manager,
Intel Storage Group. 'By building their products on a common
architecture, storage OEMs can more easily accommodate a variety of
product solutions, increase manufacturing options, address multiple
market price-points and simplify component management.'
