Intel RAID Controller RS2BL040 - Storage controller (RAID) - 4 Channel - SATA 3Gb/s / SAS

Highlights

  • Exceptional data protection
  • Inside-the-box design flexibility
  • Excellent performance
  • Outstanding availability
  • Increased IT productivity

Marketing description

The Intel RAID controller RS2BL040, a member of Intel's 6Gbps SAS adapter family, is targeted at solutions with expander backplanes or low drive counts. Features including a native PCI Express 2.0 architecture allow for significant performance gains for both 3Gbps and 6Gbps drive-based solutions versus prior generation RAID adapters. Data protection and availability are enhanced by features including decision feedback equalization for greater signal integrity, enhanced diagnostics, and more robust error reporting.

Product Features

  • Exceptional data protection
    Support 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. Four internal 6Gbps SAS ports allow connection to 6Gbps or 3Gbps high-performance SAS drives, high-capacity SATA drives or a combination of both.
  • Excellent performance
    x8 PCI Express generation 2 host interface and 800 MHz cache enhances the performance of mainstream applications.
  • Outstanding availability
    Deliver proactive drive monitoring and automatic error correction.
  • Increased IT productivity
    Include a suite of tools that are common across all Intel SAS/SATA RAID solutions, for easy installation and advanced management.
