LSI has introduced the LSI SAS 9200 range, high-performance SATA+SAS host bus adapters (HBAs) based on 6Gb/s SAS technology.

The LSI SAS 9200 series HBAs, based on the LSISAS2008 6Gb/s SAS controller IC, offer new levels of performance and scalability for internal and external direct-attached storage deployments using SATA and SAS disk drives.

The LSI SAS 9200 series adapters provide both high bandwidth and high I/O transaction processing and the flexibility to connect to 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s SATA and SAS hard drives or solid-state drives.

The adapters support applications ranging from email, OLTP and streaming video to data-entry workloads such as web hosting and cloud computing.

The new family of HBAs includes the LSI SAS 9211-4i, LSI SAS 9211-8i and the LSI SAS 9200-8e.

The adapters more than double the performance of the previous generation SATA+SAS HBAs, delivering throughput rates of up to 2.6GB/s in sequential reads, 3.0GB/s in sequential writes and up to 317,000 IOPs (input/output operations per second).

The SAS 9200 series adapters also support nearly twice the number of SATA and SAS devices as the previous-generation products.

The SAS 9211-4i (four-port) and SAS 9211-8i (eight-port) models provide internal storage connections with support for up to 256 SATA and SAS physical devices.

The SAS 9200-8e (eight-port) is designed for external storage connections and supports up to 512 SATA and SAS devices.

Utilising external Raid and JBOD enclosures, the adapter enables growing businesses to address storage-capacity requirements of up to one petabyte.

Data availability is also enhanced with the addition of Raid 10 support.

Using LSI Integrated Raid, a low-cost, hardware Raid solution within Megaraid Storage Manager, channel partners can configure highly reliable storage-system environments with optional Raid 0, 1, 1E and Raid 10 data protection levels.
