Unified eight port SATA/SAS controller with 512 MB of dedicated DDR2 cache memory, which provides maximum performance, scalability and flexibility. Its the biggest advantages is support for high-capacity SATA and high-speed SAS hard drives. Finds its use wherever high demands are placed on intensive data storage systems such as NAS, OLTP servers, web servers or network operation centers.
With enhanced permeability SAS 2.0 interface to 6 Gbit/s PCI Express 2.0 interface that connects the controller internally, allowing up to 60% higher sustained sequential data rates than previous generation controllers. This version of the low profile design provides 4 ports with support for RAID configurations 0, 1, 1E, 5, 5EE, 6, 10, 50, 60 When using the optional expander is supported up to 256 SATA or SAS hard drives. An interesting feature is the support of the hybrid RAID 1 and 10, where it is possible to combine SSD and HDD.
The controller is based on 2jádrovém chip PMC-Sierra PM8013, which is achieved due to transmission speed up to 2 GB/s Peak power is then up to 4.8 GB/s through the SAS 2.0 and 4 GB/s via PCI Express 2.0 interface (8 lines). The advantage of the model is support for different versions of operating systems, compatibility with more than 300 third-party devices, and full integration with Adaptec Storage Manager for centralized management of RAID controllers via the Java-based graphical user interface with support for monitoring SNMP and SMTP.
The controller it possible to purchase optional kit Adaptec Flash Module 600 (AFM-600) using technology Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection with 4GB NAND flash memory that replaces the battery backup unit and its goal is to eliminate data loss in case of power failure. The controller is shipped in a "kit" containing accessories in the form of two branching cables mSASx4 to 4xSATA a length of 0.7 mA auxiliary plugs with vent holes.
