Unsurpassed data availability

The new G6322 controllers offer robust performance, reliability and high data availability for today's most demanding I/O applications. Chaparral's G6322 controllers provide dual controller host independent active-active failover. Chaparral utilizes an Error Correcting Code (ECC) SDRAM DIMM module in the G6322 for data cache. Supporting RAID levels 0, 1, 0/1, 3, 4, 5, 10 and JBOD, Chaparral's true RAID technology protects against loss of data while delivering the highest levels of performance. Additional features include: OCE (On-line Capacity Expansion), dedicated and pooled spares, ECC-protected battery backed disk cache, and hot-swap replacement of disk drives and controllers. Automatic failover initiation in G6322 controllers utilizes Chaparral's unique run-time diagnostics and error handling software.

High performance
The G6322 controllers deliver more than 15,000 IOPs making the controllers excel in transaction intensive environments such as OLTP, thanks to the powerful on board Intel Pentium III Class CPU. With 32 KBytes of Level 1 cache and 256 KBytes of Level 2 on-chip cache, the powerful Pentium II processor is ready for the full range of demanding environments from transaction intensive OLTP applications to data streaming backup operations and multimedia rich Internet. The G6322 incorporates Chaparral's innovative RAIDEngine IITM memory controller. Featuring a state of the art 800 MBytes/sec PC-133 compatible ECC SDRAM memory interface and XOR RAID parity hardware, the RAIDEngine II is optimized for swift data transfers between host systems and hard disks.

These high performance controllers feature four flexible 160 MBytes/sec Ultra 160 LVDS independent buses that can be configured as host or device channels. The great flexibility built into the G6322 gives users the ability to select the configuration that suits their needs. Users with a larger number of devices can configure the controllers in one host channel and three device channels. Users who require more host channels can configure the G6322 as 2 host by 2 device channels. The G6322 controllers can aggregate performance across 30 to 45 SCSI devices spread over as many as 24 logical arrays.

Easy Design-in
The new G6322 products are fully compatible with existing third party enclosures that utilize Chaparral's G5312 and G7313 RAID controllers. The new G6322 adapter uses the same 376-pin backplane connector and common mechanical mounting requirements. Chaparral's G6322 RAID controllers are designed from the ground up for the easy integration into storage enclosures. No special circuitry is required to condition power, failover the controllers or support hot plugging. In fact, the G6322 controller backplane can be implemented as a totally passive assembly, which reduces integration cost and improves subsystem reliability.
Circuitry for G6322 controllers was specifically chosen for both high performance and low power consumption. Lower power translates into less expensive cooling requirements and higher reliability. It also contributes to longer data cache protection time when using the Chaparral-designed cache battery pack. Up to 72 hours of cache uptime can be achieved in the event of a power loss, maintaining valuable data for over three days. The new cache data battery has been designed for trouble-free regulatory design-in. The environmentally friendly 3-cell Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery pack is mechanically mounting compatible with the existing 6-cell pack used in the current G-Series family of products.

Robust Management
The G6322 RAID controllers are manageable through two different means: Out-of-band over an RS-232 interface to an ANSI terminal or terminal emulator, or in-band over the host SCSI interface. An intuitive and easy-to-use menu-driven interface is provided using Chaparral's Disk Array Administrator (CDAA) embedded firmware. The CDAA utility allows users to configure the G6322 RAID controllers and arrays, read event logs, and monitor numerous hardware and software conditions over the RS-232 interface. Chaparral's CAPI (Configuration Application Programming Interface) enables users to write host-based utilities to manage, configure and monitor all connected storage subsystems containing G6322 controllers. A CAPI software development kit is available to aid in writing GUI (Graphical User Interface) and other management utilities.
Firmware is embedded in the G6322 to monitor voltage levels of all incoming power, cache battery pack voltage and temperature, CPU temperature, and controller ambient temperature. Warnings are provided over the management interfaces. Auto-shutdown has been implemented to prevent loss of data or compromising its integrity when environmental conditions exceed their maximum thresholds. The G6322 RAID Controllers' extensive feature set supports passthrough of SAF-TE environmental monitoring commands to disk enclosures. Also included is event logging and SMART event monitoring.

All onboard firmware is upgradeable either in-band over the host SCSI port, or out-of-band using the RS-232 interface, allowing users to take advantage of new advanced features from Chaparral. The special active-active failover design in the G6322 allows individual controllers to be taken off-line for firmware upgrade without interrupting operations. This results in no downtime for maintenance operations, a key requirement for mission critical applications.
