SAS 6Gb Dual Port HBA/RAID - 6Gb Dual Port SAS HBA/RAID

Areca 1882x Series

SAS 2.0 is designed for much higher speed data transfer than previously available and backward compatibility with SAS 1.0. The 6Gb/s SAS interface supports both 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s SAS/SATA disk drives for data-intensive applications and 6Gb/s or 3Gb/s SATA drives for low-cost bulk storage of reference data. 

The 6Gb/s SAS RAID controllers raise  the standard to higher performance levels  with several enhancements including new high performance dual core ROC Processor, a DDR3-1333 memory architecture and high performance PCie 2.0 x8 lane host interface bus interconnection. 

The low profile controllers by default support on-board 1G of ECC DDR3-1333 SDRAM memory.  The optional battery backup module provides power to the cache if it contains data not yet written to the drives when power is lost.  The test result is against overall performance compared to other 6Gb/s SAS RAID controllers. The powerful new ROC processors integrated 8 6Gb/s SAS ports on chip delivers high performance for servers and workstations.
