-Hello, I'm Dong Ngo for cnet.com at CES 2011. I'm standing here next to the demo of Marvell's new storage controller, the 6-gigabit HyperDuo. This is the first controller on the market that allows you to use one traditional hard drive and then other solid state drive together in one single volume storage system. The purpose of this is to create a hypersystem that offer the performance of the solid state drive. At the same time, have the capacity of the traditional hard drive. This is how it works. The system needs to have a one hard drive and one solid state drive. The controller then use a special algorithm to automatically allocate the frequently accessed file to the solid state drive while leaving the rest of the traditional hard drive. According to the demo here, the new controller enables a single hybrid volume to have about 80% of the performance of the solid state drive. Also, with the fact that the system will allow savvy user to create an all hybrid system by using one hard dive and one solid state drive. Whether you use single hard drive or a regular hard drive, the controller will work like any other SATA controller on the market. It doesn't require special software driver or a complicated setup process. The HyperDuo controller card will be soon available on the market from third party vendors such as HighPoint, ASUS, or Gigabyte. There will also soon be motherboard with built-in support for this technology. Once again from CES 2011, my name is Dong Ngo and this has been the first look at the HyperDuo storage controller from Marvell.
