Intel® RAID Controller RS2VB080 Product Brief
The Intel® RAID Controllers RS2VB080/ 040 offers maintenance free backup capability built on proven 6GB/s SAS RAID technology. The backup unit features NAND flash to capture the RAID controller memory contents in the event of system hangs, crashes, kernel panics, or power failures. When one of these issues occurs, all outstanding IOs will be transferred to flash memory for storage for completion once the system comes back online.
In addition to maintenance free backup, the Intel® RAID Controllers RS2VB080/ 040 features either 8 or 4 internal ports (depending on model), an LSI SAS2108 6Gb/s RAID on Chip (ROC) processor, a native PCI Express* 2.0 architecture, and an easy-to-use graphical interface. These features combined to provide significant performance and usability gains for both 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s drive-based solutions compared to Intel’s SAS 1 and first gene-ration SAS 2 RAID products.
All Intel RAID solutions are validated across multiple platforms with Intel® boards, chassis, and systems. Customized training, as well as Intel® service and support, make Intel the one source for customers seeking data protection, increased productivity, and simplified IT.
