Intel® RAID solutions are designed, optimized, and tested for Intel servers for excellent performance, and data protection capabilities. A one-of-a-kind testing and quality assurance process ensures simplified use in Intel servers.

Intel® Embedded Server RAID Technology is host-based RAID that utilizes the chipset, processors, and memory of the server board to provide basic data protection. This is the entry-level standard for Intel® Xeon® processor 5000 sequence-based server boards.

Intel Embedded RAID technology includes advanced technologies and world-class features that supports up to six SATA drives or eight SAS/SATA drives, depending on the server board or system.
