Key Advantages
SAS and is matched with 4 lanes of PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 5Gb/s performance to eliminate
bottlenecks. Performance is based on the SAS 2004 IO controller that highly integrates the
latest enhancements in PCIe and SAS technoogy. The HBA supports up to 256 SAS or SATA
The SAS 9211-4i has one (x4) internal mini-SAS connector (SFF8087) enabling a low profile
solution which provides SAS and SATA data transfer rates of 1.5, 3 and 6Gb/s per lane
Provides state of the art connectivity
for entry level servers with internal
through automatic speed negotiation that can achieve over 160,000 IOPs. Enhanced features
4 lanes of PCIe 2.0 provides fast
signaling for high-bandwidth
corruption,and Spread Spectrum Clocking (SSC) for minimal EMI.
