The sixteen-port LSI SAS 9201-16i, offering data transfer rates of up to 6Gb/s per port, brings new features and improved performance to applications using up to 512 SATA or SAS devices.
6GB/s SATA+SAS advantage
The LSI SAS 9201-16i host bus adapter (HBA) enables large-scale storage arrays through high-speed 6GB/s ports, supporting up to 512 SATA and SAS physical devices. It bolsters high capacity server storage RAID and non- RAID enclosures by pairing an x8 PCI Express 2.0 host interface with four internal x4 SFF8087 mini-SAS connectors. 6GB/s SAS technology enhancements, such as end-to-end CRC, power management, and hot plug support, combine to produce an extremely powerful yet dependable solution. Additionally, the T-10 protection model delivers early detection of and recovery from data corruption while spread spectrum clocking reduces EMI emissions. Other features include greater signal integrity and longer cables using decision feedback equalization and support for more sophisticated SAS topologies using expander self-discovery/self-configuration.
Flexible to fit your needs
LSI SATA+SAS HBAs build upon the industry-leading LSI SAS technology, delivering performance and power saving advantages along with the added assurance gained from robust interoperability testing. Built to handle the constantly changing and complex requirements of enterprise storage, LSI HBAs effortlessly manage the need for larger capacity, greater density and scalability. The LSI SAS 9201-16i works easily with SATA and SAS, hard disk drives, solid state drives, and tape drives. It also doubles the performance of SATA+SAS HBAs and is optimal for driving cost-effective and reliable scalability in today's data centers.
