Areca RAID-on-Chip (ROC)

RAID on Chip (ROC) is a type of hardware-based RAID technology that integrates RAID functionality directly into the chipset of a server or storage system, eliminating the need for an external RAID controller.

ROC is designed to improve the performance, reliability, and scalability of storage systems, and it provides many of the same features as traditional hardware RAID controllers, such as support for multiple RAID levels, including RAID 0, 1, 5, and 6.

The benefits of using ROC include:

  1. Improved Performance: ROC can improve the performance of storage systems, as it eliminates the need for data to travel through an external RAID controller, reducing latency and increasing the speed of data transfer.

  2. Increased Reliability: ROC can provide increased reliability, as it eliminates a potential point of failure in the storage system, reducing the risk of downtime and data loss.

  3. Lower Cost: ROC can reduce the cost of storage systems, as it eliminates the need for an external RAID controller, reducing the hardware and maintenance costs associated with traditional RAID controllers.

  4. Increased Scalability: ROC can provide increased scalability, as it enables the use of larger and more complex storage systems, allowing organizations to accommodate growth and manage larger amounts of data.

Areca uses the latest ROC for a cost-effective and efficient way to provide RAID functionality for storage systems, offering improved performance, reliability, and scalability compared to traditional hardware RAID controllers.
