The eight-port MegaRAID SAS 9260-8i, offering data transfer rates of up to 6Gb/s per port, brings new features and improved performance to server applications using up to 128 SAS or SATA devices.

Next-generation SATA+SAS RAID
LSI MegaRAID SATA+SAS controllers provide a new level of reliability, availability, and performance to businesses that are facing storage challenges driven by unprecedented data growth. With data transfer rates of up to 6Gb/s per port, the MegaRAID SAS 9260-8i brings users features and improved performance, while continuing to support all the features of the previous 3Gb/s SATA+SAS generation. The MegaRAID value line controllers, ideal for inside-the-box connectivity, employs the latest in RAID-on-Chip technology, complies with the PCI Express 2.0 specification, and provides additional data security using LSI SafeStore encryption services.

6Gb/s SAS performance advantage
6Gb/s SAS is designed for backward compatibility with 3Gb/s SAS as well as with 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s SATA hard drives. Regardless of the drive speed, 6Gb/s MegaRAID controllers will deliver significant performance improvements in both read and write applications as compared to their 3Gb/s predecessors. Other features of the 6Gb/s MegaRAID SATA+SAS controllers include greater signal integrity using Decision Feedback Equalization, support for more sophisticated SAS topologies using Expander Self-discovery/Self-configuration, and additional safeguards to enhance data protection.

LSI SafeStore encryption services
LSI is pleased to introduce SafeStore encryption services, which offer instant secure erase and local key management for self-encrypting drives (SEDs). This technology represents a significant step forward in securing a drive's data from any unauthorized access or modification resulting from theft, loss, or repurposing of drives. Instant secure erase permanently removes data when repurposing or decommissioning SEDs. SafeStore local key management provides the necessary management and protection of SEDs using a simple pass phrase, security key identifier, and security key file, which can be set and applied to all SEDs assigned to a MegaRAID controller. This removes the complexity of managing each SED's unique encryption key, and essentially relieves the administrator from most of the daily tasks of securing data.

Product Highlights
  • Low-profile, 8 internal port 6Gb/s SATA+SAS RAID card with x8 PCIe 2.0 host interface and a full complement of data protection features
  • All the performance, reliability and flexibility of LSI RAID technology with support for 3Gb/s legacy SATA, or 6Gb/s SAS or SSD devices
  • Email, file and SharePoint servers for small business and tiered storage server applications can benefit from LSI RAID protection and performance
