Under the terms of the agreement Intel has selected LSI to supply 3 and 6Gb/s technology for its server and workstation products.
The two companies have collaborated since 2003, and under this expanded agreement Intel will make available to its channel customers a wider range of SAS/SATA RAID products for Intel servers and workstations.
Using the LSI SAS1078 and future 6Gb/sec SAS ROC and MegaRAID technologies, Intel said will deliver both RAID adapter and integrated board products designed to complement the new Quad-Core Xeon processor 5400 series.
In the first quarter of 2008, the chip giant plans to add four SAS/SATA controllers and one system board to its current portfolio of SCSI, SATA and SAS RAID products.
David Brown, director of marketing, Intel Enterprise Product and Services Division, said: "In the end, this boils down to investment protection for Intel's channel customers based on a planned evolution of our server and workstation products combined with LSI ROC and MegaRAID solutions."
