The HP Smart Array P212 is HP's entry level PCI Express (PCIe) Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) RAID controller. The low profile, half height card has 8 ports and utilizes DDR2-800 memory. The Smart Array P212 8-Port zero memory SAS RAID controller is ideal for RAID 0, 1, 1+0, and can be upgraded for RAID 5, 5+0 and additionally with Battery Kit and Smart Array Advanced Pack (SAAP) license key for RAID 6 (ADG), & 6+0.
Fine for what it is
Pros: This card served me fine for the past year connected to a single external SAS device. Installation was straightforward into my HP ProLiant DL165 G6 running Gentoo.
Cons: It will NOT talk to an SAS expander. Hence I replace it now.
