LSI MegaRAID SATA+SAS controllers provide a new level of reliability, availability, and performance to businesses that are facing storage challenges driven by unprecedented data growth. With data transfer rates of up to 6Gb/s per port, the MegaRAID SAS 9260-4i KIT brings users features and improved performance, while continuing to support all the features of the previous 3Gb/s SATA+SAS generation. This value line controller, ideal for cost-sensitive 1U and 2U server applications, employs the latest in RAID-on-Chip technology, complies with the PCI Express 2.0 specification, and provides additional data security using LSI SafeStore encryption services.
6Gb/s SAS is designed for backward compatibility with 3Gb/s SAS as well as with 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s SATA hard drives. Regardless of the drive speed, 6Gb/s MegaRAID controllers will deliver significant performance improvements in both read and write applications as compared to their 3Gb/s predecessors. Other features of the 6Gb/s MegaRAID SATA+SAS controllers include greater signal integrity using Decision Feedback Equalization, support for more sophisticated SAS topologies using Expander Self-discovery/Self-configuration, and additional safeguards to enhance data protection.
LSI is pleased to introduce SafeStore encryption services, which include instant secure erase for self-encrypting drives (SEDs). This techno-logy represents a significant step forward in securing a drive's data from any unauthorized access or modification resulting from theft, loss, or repurposing of drives. Instant secure erase cryptographically erases an SED, whether it is 73GB or 1TB, in less than a second. This allows for secure drive returns or reuse.
