Features & Benefits

Features Benefits
  • 16 lines of 12Gbit/s SAS ports PCI Express® 3.0
  • Connect up to 64 HDDs and SSDs
  • SAS3516 12Gbit/s RAID-on-Chip
  • RAID levels 0, 1, 5 and 6 for more data security, RAID spans 10, 50 and 60 for more data security
  • 16 lines of 8 Gbit/s PCIe Gen 3 for up to 4x x4 NVMe drives (The NVMe drive support will be available at a later date)
  • NVMe is an interface with lower overhead, lower latency and drastically increased bandwidth and IOPS
  • 4GB 2133MHz DDR4 cache memory
  • Improves performance for storage intensive workloads (such as databases) and for certain load profiles like random access to databases (especially for SSD drives)
