Avago SAS 9201-16e
Support massive external storage arrays
The LSI SAS 9201-16e, quad port, host bus adapter provides maximum connectivity and performance for external JBOD and external RAID enclosures. The LSI SAS 9201-16e provides 16 lanes of 6Gb/s SAS connectivity to 8 lanes of PCI Express 2.0. Performance is based on the LSISAS2116 IO controller that highly integrates the latest enhancements in PCI Express and SAS technology. The HBA supports up to 512 SAS or SATA devices.
The LSI SAS 9201-16e has four (x4) external mini -SAS connectors (SFF8088) enabling a solution which provide SAS and SATA data transfer rates of 1.5, 3 and 6Gb/s per lane through automatic speed negotiation that can achieve over 430,000 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.
