Avago SAS 9200-8e
Support massive external storage arrays
The LSI SAS 9200-8e, dual port, host bus adapter provides high performance connectivity for external JBOD and external RAID enclosures. The LSI SAS 9200-8e provides 8 lanes of 6Gb/s SAS connectivity to 8 lanes of PCI Express 2.0 5Gb/s performance to eliminate bottlenecks. Performance is based on the LSISAS2008 IO controller that highly integrates the latest enhancements in PCI Express and SAS technology. The HBA supports up to 512 SAS 2.0 compliant devices.
The LSI SAS 9200-8e has two (x4) external mini- SAS connectors (SFF8088) enabling a low profile solution that can achieve over 320,000 IOPs. Automatic speed negotiation for SAS and SATA data transfer rates of 1.5, 3 and 6Gb/s per lane assures legacy compatibility while new systems can benefit from 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.
