Key advantages

System design flexibility

1U-capable system board connects to the I/O expansion slot on Intel’s rack-optimized server boards. This module can be used in Intel and third-party chassis without the need for a riser card or low profile chassis cutout.

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, PCI Express* 2.0 x4 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

Design utilizes LSI MegaRAID Entry technology which offers simplified configuration options, the same robustness, and many of the same features as trusted LSI MegaRAID technology.

Seamless migration to more fully featured RAID

Shares common drivers with Intel’s enterprise-class RAID products which allows for simple migration to more full-featured RAID-on-Chip–based products should system requirements change.

Increased IT productivity

Includes a suite of tools that are common across all Intel® SAS/SATA RAID solutions, for easy installation and advanced management.
