The Intel RAID Controller RS3WC080 is a PCI-Express (PCIe) 3.0, low-profile controller with RAID control capability. You can use these controllers in a system that supports both enterprise-class SAS drives and desktop-class SATA III drives. In addition, these controllers support integrated MegaRAID (iMR) functionality.
The Intel RAID Controller RS3WC080, which is based on the LSISAS3008 I/O controller, uses flash memory device for storing the BIOS and firmware and controls eight internal SAS/SATA ports through two SFF-8643 mini-SAS HD-4i internal connectors.
The 12 Gbps Intel RAID Controllers are based on the LSI first-to-market SAS IC technology and proven MegaRAID technology. As third-generation PCIe RAID controllers, the controllers address the growing demand for increased data throughput and scalability requirements across midrange and enterprise-class server platforms.
- 12.0 Gbps SAS III performance
- 6.0 Gbps SATA III performance
- Eight-lane PCIe host interface
- Essential performance and scalability
Supplies PCI Express architecture with over 1 million IOPs; employs SAS/JBOD connectivity with support of up to 244 physical devices.
- Internal connectivity
Eight internal ports allow for a RAID array within a system.
- Hybrid RAID 5
Design based on LSI MegaRAID entry technology offering RAID 5 which is firmware based, but relies on system resources. Configuration options are simplified for entry-level usage models.
- SAS or SATA storage
Connect SAS or SATA devices within the array. Use SAS drives for speed, reliability and scalability; use high-capacity SATA drives for budget-friendly storage.
