Essential Performance without Relying on System Resources LSI SAS2008 IOC technology with hardware RAID capability and an x8 PCI Express Generation 2 host interface enhance the performance of server and workstation applications.
Exceptional Data Protection Supports data redundancy using SAS or SATA hard disk drives through mirroring and parity (RAID levels 1,5) plus striping capability for spans (RAID levels 10, 50).
SAS 6Gb/s Compliant Features hot-pluggable, SATA-compatible SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) ports to provide 6Gb/s data transfer rates for optimum performance, efficiency, convenience and flexibility.
Hot Spare Includes global hot spare support that automatically comes online to replace the first drive to fail on any array or disk group on the controller.
Inside-the-box Design Flexibility With a true MD2 form factor, this adapter is ideal for low-profile height and half-length adapter slots. Four internal 6Gb/s SAS ports allow connection to 6Gb/s or 3Gb/s high performance SAS drives, high capacity SATA drives or a combination of both.
