Supermicro 3Gb/s Four-Internal and Four-External ports SAS RAID Adapter
The Supermicro UIO MegaRAID AOC-SAS-H4iR features 4 internal and 4 external ports SAS connectors for high-performance storage connectivity. This RAID card is built on the LSI Logic SAS IC technology and proven MegaRAID technology. It addresses the growing demand for increased data throughput and scalability requirement across the enterprise-class Server platforms. With high performance RAID architecture, including hardware RAID 5 and 6, this new RAID controller card supports high capacity storage applications. It delivers cost effective storage solutions using SATA drives and maximum performance and reliability with SAS drives.
WWith the option of battery backup unit, this provides cached data protection and allows system builders to protect cached data even during the most catastrophic system failures.
Using a LSISAS 1078 I/O processor for optimum RAID performance and a PCI Express host interface for increased bandwidth, this UIO RAID adapter deliver an intelligent and robust RAID solution. The AOC-SAS-H4iR supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60.
