Intel® RAID Controller RS2PI008

Compact Eight-Port 6G SAS PCIe 2.0 RAID Adapter for External Storage

Intel® RAID Controller RS2PI008

Key features

  • Embedded 512-MB 800 MHz (ECC DDR2 memory) to efficiently store data in transition
  • Speaker to deliver audible alerts
  • Two SFF8088 SAS/SATA connectors for up to four external ports
  • x8 PCI Express* Gen 2 interface for fast communication with the server board
  • LSI SAS2108* RAID-on-chip (ROC) controller providing SAS 2.0 compliance, including 6-Gb/s data transfer
  • Two internal cables with SFF8087 connectors that expands to four individual connectors

Unprecedented performance and design flexibility

The Intel® RAID Controller RS2PI008, powered by LSI MegaRAID* technology, is part of the Intel portfolio of 6-Gb/s SAS adapters and offers unprecedented performance with exceptional data protection and design flexibility. Features including LSI’s SAS2108 6-Gb/s ROC silicon and a native PCI Express 2.0 architecture technology allow for significant performance gains for both 3-Gb/s and 6-Gb/s drive-based solutions. Data protection and availability are enhanced by new features, including decision feedback equalization for greater signal integrity, enhanced diagnostics, and more robust error reporting.

Target application

Scalable performance.

Key advantages

Exceptional data protection

Supports data redundancy using SAS or SATA hard disk drives through mirroring, parity, and double parity (RAID levels 1, 5, and 6), plus striping capability for spans (RAID levels 10, 50, and 60).

Inside-the-box design flexibility

With a true MD2 form factor, this adapter is ideal for low-profile height and half-length adapter slots. Eight external 6-Gb/s SAS ports allow connection to 6-Gb/s or 3-Gb/s high-performance SAS drives, high-capacity SATA drives, or a combination of both.

Excellent performance

LSI SAS2108* ROC technology, x8 PCI Express* Gen 2 host interface and 800-MHz cache enhances the performance of mainstream applications.

Outstanding availability

Delivers proactive drive monitoring and automatic error correction. An optional battery backup maintains data without the need for an uninterruptible power supply.
