The Affordable 8-Port SAS 6Gb/s Host Adpater
The Rocket 2700 Series HBA's were designed with budget conscious SMB's and solutions providers in mind, delivering robust, easily integrated SAS 6Gb/s port-connectivity at an unbeatable price. Each Rocket2700 HBA supports up to 8 SAS/SATA hard drives and SSD's, and are powered by a PCI-Express 2.0 x8 host interface.
Rocket2700 HBA's are fully backwards compatible with SAS/SATA 3Gb/s devices, PCI-Express 1.0 slots, and can be easily integrated into existing PC-based server and workstation environments. Simplified software packages allow administrators to quickly and easily install Rocket 2700 into any PC hardware platforms. Driver support is readily available for all current Microsoft operating systems, as well as major Linux distributions.
plug and play on Linux
This review is from: HighPoint Rocket 2722 PCI-Express 2.0 x8 Low Profile SATA / SAS HBA Card
Pros: I'm using this card in a Fedora linux system running kernel 4.1.13. According to "lspci", it identifies as follows:
Other Thoughts: I previously tried using the Highpoint Rocket 644L controller with 4 separate eSATA enclosures, but I could never get it to work. It is either extremely sensitive to cabling quality, or the controller card is buggy. There would be some kind of error talking to 1 disk, and then the whole array would get hosed. So I strongly recommend the 2722 over the 644L. The SFF-8088 connection works well.
