Description: Microsemi Adaptec RAID 7805 - Storage controller (RAID) - 8 Channel - SATA 6Gb/s / SAS 6Gb/s low profile - 600 MBps - RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 1E, 60 - PCIe 3.0 x8
Mfr Part #: 2274100-R
The Microsemi Adaptec series 7 RAID adapter family features a 24 port PM8015 RAID-on-Chip (ROC), which combines a x8 PCIe Gen3 interface with 6 Gb/s SAS ports to enable a new generation of high performance RAID adapters that are unmatched by any other ROC in the industry. Adaptec series 7 RAID adapters are available with 8 native SAS ports.
While the PCIe Gen3 interface doubles bandwidth to the host compared to PCIe Gen2, it requires at least 16 6 Gb/s SAS ports to double the bandwidth to the storage devices.
- 6 Gb/s throughput at each port
- LP MD2 for up to 8 native SAS ports
- Direct connect to backplanes
- Maximum performance for up to 24 SSDs
- Mini SAS HD connectors and SAS HD cables - for fit and function in dense server configurations
- Support for up to 256 SAS devices
- Support for SSD, HDD, Autoloader, RBOD, Tape
- Auto configuration of HBA and Simple Volume modes - "set it and forget it"
- New levels of performance
Series 7 adapters perform at up to 6.6 GB/s on sequential reads and up to 2.6 GB/s on sequential writes on parity RAID 5, more than doubling the performance of competing host-based RAID adapters. With 16 direct-connected solid-state drives (SSDs), Series 7 adapters can deliver up to 450,000 IOPS - nearly 10x the performance of previous-generation RAID adapters.
- Advanced data protection
Adaptec RAID Code (ARC) delivers maximum reliability with RAID levels 0, 1, 1E, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60 (71605E supports RAID 0, 1, 1E and 10). ARC also offers RAID Level Migration (the ability to easily migrate RAID levels), Online Capacity Expansion (expand capacity without powering down the server), and Copyback Hot Spare (when a failed drive has been replaced, data is automatically copied from the hot spare back to the restored drive). New to series 7 is its auto configuration capability. Users can operate in HBA mode (expose drives to the host directly) or simple volume mode (use fast DRAM cache to reduce latency and improve performance), without the need to use setup tools. In RAID mode, they can mix and match all devices and handle them at the same time.
Series 7 adapters support all types of devices including drives, tapes, autoloaders, external RAID systems. They support migration of disk drives from standard Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) as well as onboard SATA or SAS interfaces from the motherboard.
- Introducing mini SAS HD connectors
These connectors allow for greater flexibility in configuration options by supporting up to 16 native SAS ports in a Low-Profile MD2 form factor and up to 8 SAS ports in a full-height half-length form factor. The connectors can be combined with a wide range of Adaptec SAS HD cables, including straight connectors or Adaptec's first to market right angle connectors.
- Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection (ZMCP)
Series 7 adapters can be combined with third generation AFM-700 flash-based cache protection module to enable instant batteryfree protection of the data within the cache.
- Adaptec maxView storage manager
Adaptec maxView provides the powerful features of Adaptec storage manager in an HTML5 web interface that can be viewed in standard desktop or mobile browsers without the need for separate software installation.
- Hybrid RAID
With Hybrid RAID 1 & 10 the series 7 adapters offer maximum performance and reliability by combining SSDs and HDDs in a single mirroring array. By performing read operations from the faster SSD and write operations on both the SSDs and HDDs the result is tremendous performance gains over standard HDD RAID arrays.
