The Intel RAID Controller RS2PI008, powered by LSI MegaRAID technology, is part of the Intel portfolio of 6 Gb/s SAS adapters, offers unprecedented performance with exceptional data protection and design flexibility. Features including LSI's SAS2108 6Gb/s RAID-on-Chip (RoC) silicon and a native PCI Express 2.0 architecture technology allow for significant performance gains for both 3 Gb/s and 6 Gb/s drive-based solutions. Data protection and availability are enhanced by features including decision-feedback equalization for greater signal integrity, enhanced diagnostics, and more robust error reporting.

Exceptional data protection
Supports data redundancy using SAS or SATA hard disk drives through mirroring, parity, and double parity (RAID levels 1, 5, and 6) plus striping capability for spans (RAID levels 10, 50, and 60).

Inside-the-box design flexibility
With a true MD2 form factor, this adapter is ideal for low-profile height and half-length adapter slots. Eight external 6 Gb/s SAS ports allow connection to 6 Gb/s or 3 Gb/s high-performance SAS drives, high-capacity SATA drives, or a combination of both.

Excellent performance
LSI SAS2108 RoC technology, x8 PCI Express Generation 2 host interface and 800 MHz cache enhances the performance of mainstream applications.

Outstanding availability
Delivers proactive drive monitoring and automatic error correction. An optional battery backup maintains data without the need for an uninterruptible power supply.

Optional self-encrypting drive (SED) support
The RS2PI008 "DE" (disk encryption) model allows for management and protection of SEDs using a simple pass phrase, security key identifier, and security key file. This is a significant step forward in securing a drive's data from any unauthorized access or modification resulting from theft, loss, or re-purposing of drives.
