LSI MegaRAID® 9260-8i SAS 6Gb/s ROC RAID Card
|LSI MegaRAID® 9260-8i SAS 6Gb/s ROC RAID Card
|Optional: LSI iBBU08 Battery Backup Unit for LSI 9260-8i
The LSI MegaRAID® SAS 9260-8i, 6Gb/s eight port, ROC (RAID on Chip) controller is a next generation high bandwidth storage option, ideal for storage connectivity of SAS drives in high performance workstations.
The LSI 9260-8i design has more than 2X the RAID 5 Write bandwidth of the older LSI 8888ELP RAID card. HP performance testing confirmed the increase in performance.*
The LSI MegaRAID® 9260-8i is designed to excel in both high I/O transaction and high bandwidth processing. With an integrated 800MHz PowerPC, 800MHz 512MB write cache, and x8 PCI (Gen2) V2.0 Express, the 9260 delivers impressive performance numbers - up to 2,875MB/s Reads and up to 1,850MB/s Writes - allowing streaming data, video or data backup applications to run faster than ever.**
The MegaRAID 9260-8i features the LSI SAS2108 RAID-on-Chip (ROC), a powerful I/O storage engine that transparently performs all the data protection, data checking, and restoration tasks.
You can also ensure that your data is protected in the event of a sudden power failure with the optional LSI iBBU08 Battery Backup Unit (mounts on the LSI 9260-8i). This will protect unwritten information in the controller cache for up to 48 hours. An investment in the LSI 9260-8i and the Battery Backup Unit brings piece of mind.
* Performance information based on the upper performance range of the LSI 9260-8i card for RAID 5. This is hard drive and configuration dependent.
** May require more storage drives than can be installed in the HP Workstations.
