Intel® Integrated RAID Module RMS2AF080 Product Brief
The Intel® RMS2AF080, one of Intel’s new entry-level 6Gb/s SAS I/O modules, incorporates LSI’s MegaRAID* Entry technology to offer exceptional data protection and configuration flexibility. Designed for a wide selection of Intel server boards, this SAS/SATA RAID module offers features including LSI’s 2008 6Gb/s I/O Controller (IOC) and a native PCI Express* 2.0 architecture. The Intel RMS2AF080 allows businesses using entry-level servers and workstations to employ robust RAID functionality at lower prices than enterprise-class RAID adapters.
The Intel RMS2AF080 communicates with the host system through a custom board-to-board PCIe 2.0 interface to allow for minimizing the RAID hardware footprint. All Intel RAID solutions are validated across multiple platforms with Intel® boards, chassis, and systems. Custom training, as well as Intel service and support, make Intel the one source for customers seeking data protection, increased productivity, and simplified IT.
• System design flexibility.
1U capable system board connects to the I/O expansion slot on Intel’s rack optimized server boards.
• Exceptional data protection.
Supports data redundancy using SAS or SATA hard disk drives through mirroring, parity, and double parity (RAID levels 1 and 5) plus striping capability for spans (RAID levels 10 and 50).
• Excellent performance without hindering system resources.
LSI SAS2008* I/O controller host allows for built-in hardware RAID 0, 1 and 10; plus, firmware-based RAID 5 and 50 (RAID 5 and 50 utilize system resources to a limited extent).
• Enhanced entry-level availability.
The Intel RMS2AF080 design utilizes LSI MegaRAID Entry technology.
• Seamless migration to more fully featured RAID.
The Intel® RMS2MH040 shares common drivers with Intel’s enterprise-class RAID products.
