It is a SAS Raid controller card. This unified Adaptec 2270800-R controller card delivers the robustness of the hardware RAID offering complete IOS support. The controller is equipped with the enterprise level features that make you get high performance of the controller card. The series 6E controller cards are compatible for both the SAS and SATA technology that has been qualified with the same motherboards, systems, drives, and backplanes. The controller cards of series 6E had been checked thoroughly for the desktop use so you don’t have to worry about anything because you will receive a tested controller. Although it also delivers the same performance as that of the series 6 controllers it has been designed to match the needs where a series 6 does not match as per cost and form factor. So before buying a controller card, you should check your requirements then choose to buy the perfect controller card for you.
Input-output connectivity and Data protection
It can be used as a connectivity product that can support up to 4 SAS and SATA devices. It offers 128 MB of DRAM cache that can enhance device acceleration. The SAS raid controller card offers maximum reliability with levels 0, 1, 1E, 10 and JBOD. On top of that, it also offers facilities such as RAID level migration, online capacity expansion and copies back hot spares. The controller card is completely secure.
The case for cache
It is the fastest way to fulfill all the requests to read and write. So you become able to access the data if you want at a rapid rate. It offers several performance benefits like reduced latency time of input-output operations with the enhanced performance.
It is equipped with the hybrid RAID 1 and 10. The series 6 offers maximum performance as well as reliability to you by SSD and HDD in a single array. You can make the process of reading and write requests faster than before using this controller. It can perform read operations on solid state drives and write operations both solid state drive and hard disk drives. It offers tremendous performance and you can perform actions at a faster rate. As it supports both the technologies because it offers great performance as compared to the one that only supports solid state drives.
Intelligent power management
It is equipped with intelligent power management that slashed power and cost up to 70%. It offers intelligent input and output caching combing with the power savings with standby as well as power off modes.
It is a great option to use for desktop and entry-level server platform. Use this raid controller card without compromising the performance of your desktop of PC and entry-level server. It reduces energy consumption while offering higher input-output transaction speed.
It is compatible with high-performance SAS hard drive and high capacity SATA hard drive that makes it a perfect option if you want to upgrade your controller card. The controller card also used for expansion because this controller card supports the hard drive to enhance the memory.
