The LSI SAS 9200-8e host bus adapter enables large-scale storage arrays through eight high-speed 6Gb/s ports, supporting up to 512 SATA and SAS physical devices. This HBA bolsters large capacity external server storage RAID and non-RAID enclosures by pairing an x8 PCI Express 2.0 host interface with two external x4 SFF8088 Mini-SAS connectors. LSI SATA+SAS HBAs are compatible with 6Gb/s and 3GBb/s, SATA and SAS, hard disk drives, solid state drives, and tape drives. The LSI SAS 9200-8e doubles the performance of previous generation SATA+SAS HBAs and is great for driving cost-effective and reliable scalability in today’s data centers.
Not what I was expecting
This review is from: LSI LSI00188 PCI Express Low Profile Ready SATA / SAS 9200-8e Controller Card (Single Pack)--Avago Technologies
Pros: It did exactly what it was supposed to do. The card installed easily and the drivers were recognized by MS Server 2003 without issue.
Cons: JBOD only.
Other Thoughts: This isn't really a con because it is my fault for not reading up on the card more thoroughly but I was expecting it to have support for on board RAID. I guess since it's a HBA (Host Bus Adapter) this it is normal not to have it, but since this was my first experience with such a device it was news to me.
