Power Workstations and Entry Level Servers with a Low-Cost, Green RAID Solution
MegaRAID SATA+SAS Entry Product Line
LSI MegaRAID® SATA+SAS entry controller cards allow small to medium business owners andgaming
enthusiasts to enjoy the latest RAID technology at affordable prices with low power consumption.
This product line delivers trusted MegaRAID reliability with minimal maintenance effort. MegaRAID
entry controller cards offer users a straight-forward solution that includes essential RAID levels and
uncomplicated configuration options. In addition, they are able to connect to SATA and SAS hard
disk drives and solid state drives, allowing for tiered storage that optimizes cost and performance.
SAS drives are optimal when speed and reliability are of the utmost concern while SATA drives are
appropriate when capacity and cost are more important. MegaRAID entry controllers cover the
spectrum of tiered storage requirements for cost-sensitive applications that require robust data
Seamless Migration to MegaRAID Value and Feature Products
A unique feature of the MegaRAID SATA+SAS entry line is the ability to seamlessly migrate from
these low-cost RAID 5 controllers to the more full-featured MegaRAID product lines. Users can
simply plug in a new controller to recognize and import the existing array without requiring any
reconfiguration. Plus, a single management client provides a consistent user interface to manage
any MegaRAID SATA and/or SAS arrays.
6Gb/s SAS Performance Advantage
6Gb/s SAS is designed for backward compatibility with 3Gb/s SAS as well as with 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s
SATA hard drives. Regardless of the drive speed, 6Gb/s MegaRAID controllers will deliver significant
performance improvements in both read and write applications as compared to their 3Gb/s
predecessors. Other new features of 6Gb/s MegaRAID SATA+SAS controllers include greater signal
integrity using Decision Feedback Equalization, support for more sophisticated SAS topologies using
Expander Self-discovery/Self-configuration, and additional safeguards to enhance data protection.
