Uses intelligent algorithms to automatically pin hot data files and directories to a SATA SSD
Integrated silicon offerings firm Marvell has launched the 88SE9130 6Gb/s SATA controller powered by HyperDuo embedded processor technology.
The offering is configured with one hard disk drive and one solid-state-drive (SSD), and uses intelligent algorithms to automatically pin hot data files and directories to a SATA SSD while enabling all data to be stored on a larger capacity SATA HDD.
The company said that the new 88SE9130 controller enables solid-state-drive like performance while allowing all data to be stored on a traditional SATA hard disk drive (HDD).
The 88SE9130 comes in two product modes: Safe Mode and Capacity Mode. Safe Mode provides optimal data protection by mirroring data on SSD to the hard disk for resiliency, while Capacity Mode combines SSD and HDD capacity together for the cost-effective configuration.
Marvell Semiconductor vice president of marketing for the storage business group Alan Armstrong said the 88SE9130 enables industry-leading performance levels at ultra-low product and energy costs.
