Storage strategies never sit still for long. Today’s approach might be based on 6Gb/s internal SATA drives while the next quarter may call for a new application needing external 12Gb/s SAS. The LSI® SAS 9300-4i4e 12Gb/s SAS Host Bus Adapter provides the flexibility to grow storage architecture as needed.

  • Connect up to 1024 SAS and SATA devices with 4 internal and 4 external 12Gb/s SAS and SATA ports
  • Fit into 1U/2U rack-mounted servers and workstations with low-profile form factor (full-height bracket included)
  • Provide up to 12Gb/s SAS and up to 6Gb/s SATA performance across 8 lanes of PCIe® 3.0 connectivity
  • Connect to external storage enclosures with cable support for up to 20 meters for copper or 100 meters for optical
