The LSI SAS 9205-8e host bus adapter provides high performance connectivity for 1U/2U mid to high-end servers that connect to large scale storage enclosures. The LSI SAS 9205-8e is based on the LSISAS2308 IO controller that highly integrates the latest enhancements in PCI Express and SAS technology and supports up to 1024 SAS or SATA devices.
The LSI SAS 9205-8e has two (x4) external mini SAS connectors (SFF8088) which provide SAS and SATA data transfer rates of 1.5, 3 and 6Gb/s per lane through automatic speed negotiation and can achieve over 550,000 IOPs. Enhanced features include T-10 Protection Information Model for early detection of and recovery from data corruption, and Spread Spectrum Clocking (SSC) for minimal EMI.
LSI offers the broadest SAS product portfolio in the industry with true end-to-end solutions including controllers, expanders, active-active multiplexers, ROCs, host bus adapters, RAID solutions, and external storage. LSI’s proven SAS core has completed extensive stress and interoperability testing resulting in the industry’s most robust, interoperable solution.
LSI has supplied leading edge serial technology to systems throughout the world for over seven generations, making LSI the most experienced enabler of serial interconnect for storage in the world. Integrators can be assured that their LSI adapter is providing the most advanced and robust serial technology available.
The LSI SAS host bus adapters are based on the Fusion MPT™ architected SAS controllers, which implements LSI’s Fusion-MPT (Message Passing Technology) architecture. Each controller features embedded PowerPC™ processors that deliver maximum host CPU offload. The builtin intelligence enables LSI to publish a single binary OS driver to operate any Fusion MPT controller or adapter. The architecture enables high performance, reduced software development, and faster time to market.
