PMC-Sierra, Inc. (PMC®) (NASDAQ:PMCS), the semiconductor and software
solutions innovator transforming networks that connect, move and store
big data, today announced it will host a Storage and Connectivity
Innovation Summit at the China
Cloud Computing Conference on May 22, 2014, from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m.
CDT, at the China National Convention Center in Beijing, China.
Hyperscale data centers are introducing a wide variety of new
architectures with vastly different requirements to address an
ever-increasing number of business models and applications. China is a
driving force behind the new architecture of the global data center,
enabled by storage and connectivity technology that is scalable,
flexible, and high performance, while delivering optimal cost, power and
Presenters from Alibaba Group, C3, Inspur Group, Wiwynn Corporation,
Yttibrium, and PMC will discuss the technologies and architectures that
are solving the most challenging data center problems. PMC’s session
will feature topics including hybrid and pure flash storage to
accelerate applications, scalable architectures that have the
flexibility to enable open applications and software-defined storage,
and tiering data to deliver the most efficient and cost-effective
storage. A technology demonstration will showcase two cutting-edge
storage solutions that are critical to meeting current demands of
storage system administrators.
“Each of China’s hyperscale data centers has its own specific
requirements, and this creates a tremendous opportunity for innovation,”
said Cui Li, chief architect of Data Center Products, Inspur Group.
“Working with PMC’s flexible solutions will allow us to address these
varied requirements and still provide consistently excellent performance
“No matter where they are in the world, today’s IT executives are
dealing with the same complex storage issues,” said Travis Karr, vice
president and general manager of PMC’s Enterprise Storage Division.
“They need to reach the highest levels of density, efficiency and
performance in their data centers to deal with huge volumes of data, and
they need to do it securely with as little power as possible. PMC is
leading the ecosystem with storage innovation to deliver new
architectures that address these issues.”

attendees are available for interviews.
PMC will demonstrate its Series 8 12Gb/s SAS RAID adapter with
Maintenance Cache Protection (ASR-81605ZQ)
Plus™, its advanced caching and tiering software. The demonstration
features a two-tiered storage solution comprised of 12Gb/s SAS SSDs and
HDDs. The performance tier is based on Seagate’s 1200 12Gb/s SAS SSDs,
which accelerate a second tier of Seagate Enterprise-class
Constellation.2 SATA HDDs. Adaptec maxCache Plus tiering functionality
and the redundant storage pools are both managed through Adaptec’s
maxView Storage Manager.
8 adapter family, including a new 4-port RAID adapter (ASR-8405
available in May 2014), enables denser, faster and more configurable
storage environments, which translates directly into faster data
delivery and access. Innovations like the maxCache Plus tiering
capability for Series 8 help data center architects get the most value
and performance out of their storage assets.
A second demonstration will feature an Adaptec by PMC 12Gb/s SAS HBA
prototype, showcasing an example of the raw sustained IOPS that can be
achieved when combining 12Gb/s SAS SSD technology with PMC’s 12Gb/s IO
PMC’s industry-leading system-on-chip solutions and Adaptec by PMC RAID
Adapters and HBAs deliver the technology innovation to enable the
next-generation hyperscale data center. For more information, visit: www.pmcs.com/datacenter.
