The Intel® RAID Controller RS2BL040, a member of Intels 6Gb/s SAS adapter family, is targeted at solutions with expander backplanes or low drive counts. Features including LSIs SAS2108 6Gb/s RAID on Chip (ROC) silicon and a native PCI Express* 2.0 architecture allow for significant performance gains for both 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s drive-based solutions versus prior generation RAID adapters. Data protection and availability are enhanced by new features including Decision Feedback Equalization for greater signal integrity, enhanced diagnostics, and more robust error reporting.
Exceptional data protection - Supports data redundancy using SAS or SATA hard disk drives through mirroring, parity, and double parity (RAID levels 1, 5, and 6) plus striping capability for spans (RAID levels 10, 50, and 60).
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 6 Gb/s SAS ports allow connection to 6Gb/s or 3Gb/s high-performance SAS drives, high-capacity SATA drives or a combination of both.
Excellent performance - LSI SAS2108 ROC technology, x8 PCI Express Generation 2 host interface and 800 MHz cache enhances the performance of mainstream applications.
