Mylex Corp says a deal signed with NEC Corp last week has made its Rome RAID on the motherboard concept launched last year (CI No 3,016) a reality. NEC has integrated Mylex’s RAID on the motherboard or Rome, chipset into its recently announced NEC Express/130ProServer, designed for entry-level to high-end departmental servers. Mylex says this is the first time anyone has put RAID on the motherboard. It says Rome enables OEM’s to add RAID functionality at the lowest possible cost, and because it does not require an additional board, it also frees up a PCI slot for other applications. NEC’s server uses Mylex’s MYL-86138 high performance RAID co-processor, its BA81C15 Ultra SCSI input/output co-processor and its RAID firmware and operating system drivers. It also includes Intel Corp’s i960 RP input/output co-processor. Rome supports RAID levels 0,1,3,5, and 0+1. It is available from Mylex and OEM pricing is dependent on the number of SCSI channel configurations.
