The Intel RAID Controller SASUC8I is ideal for servers and workstations needing high-speed data transfer with the option for entry-level hardware RAID data protection. This RAID controller allows for point-to-point connections with a SAS universal interconnect interface allowing for 1.5 and 3Gbps SATA hard disk drives along with logical SCSI compatibility for the extra reliability and manageability that SAS drives provide.
While other SAS controllers drive large RAID software stacks between the host CPU and controller, the SASUC8I utilizes the embedded CPU in the LSI SAS1068E ASIC to perform RAID 0, 1, and 1E/10E operations. By reducing RAID code overhead, the SASUC8I offers superior internal read/write performance.
Cost effective data protection
Provides a low-cost RAID 0, 1, and 1E/10E solution for entry-level server and workstation environments where high-performance and reliable data protection are required.
SAS or SATA storage
Connect SAS or SATA devices within the array. Use SAS drives for speed, reliability, and scalability; use high-capacity SATA drives for budget-friendly storage.
Supports up to 122 physical devices in SAS mode which is ideal for employing JBODs (Just a Bunch Of Disks) or up to 14 devices in RAID 0, 1, 1E/10E mode through direct connect device attachment or through expander backplane support.
Ultra thin driver
LSI Fusion-MPT architecture provides over 140,000 I/Os per second while communicating over the PCI Express 8-lane host bus.
Increased IT productivity
It includes a suite of tools that are common across all Intel SAS/SATA RAID solutions, for easy installation and advanced management.
