The Avago SAS 9300 16-port, 12Gb/s SAS HBA family provides increased connectivity and maximum performance for high-end servers and appliances within internal storage, or connecting to large scale storage enclosures.

The SAS 9300 16-port HBA family is based on the SAS 3008 IO controller, integrating the latest enhancements in SAS and PCI Express® (PCIe) technology. The SAS 9300-16e and SAS 9300-16i support 16 SAS ports operating at 12Gb/s data transfer rates, and can reach close to 2 million IOPS. The 16-port adapter family supports 8 PCIe lanes that comply with the latest PCIe 3.0 specifi cations. In addition, these adapters are backwards compatible with previous SAS and PCIe generations through automatic negotiation, and provide SAS data transfer rates of 12, 6, and 3 Gb/s per lane, and SATA data transfer rates of 6 and 3Gb/s per lane. Avago Technologies provides a broad suite of industry standard operating system drivers.

Avago Storage by LSI

Avago Technologies products serve four primary target markets: wireless communications, wired infrastructure, enterprise storage, and industrial. Avago Storage by LSI off ers the industry’s broadest portfolio of storage solutions, backed by decades of experience and trusted by the world’s leading server and storage suppliers. Avago provides the building blocks for storage solutions that help customers understand, prioritize, store and protect critical data.

The Avago 12Gb/s SAS portfolio includes MegaRAID® controller cards, HBAs, advanced software options, Syncro® shared DAS solutions and SAS storage ICs, including RAID-on-Chip (ROCs), I/O controllers and expanders.

Fusion-MPT™ Architecture

The Avago SAS HBAs are based on the Fusion-MPT architected SAS controllers, which implements the Fusion-MPT (Message Passing Technology) architecture. Each controller features embedded PowerPC™ processors that help deliver maximum host CPU offl oad. The built-in intelligence enables Avago to publish a single binary OS driver to operate any Fusion-MPT controller or adapter. This architecture helps enable high performance, reduced software development, and faster time to market.
