RAID Cards

High-Performance, Cost Effective

SGI offers a wide variety of 6Gbps SATA and SAS controller cards. The 6Gbps SATA + SAS RAID controller cards deliver significant performance improvements for both 3Gbps and 6Gbps systems. The full SATA + SAS RAID line up includes 6Gbps products ranging from entry to full-feature in a variety of internal and external connector configurations these cards deliver. Cost effective, high-performance and high-capacity storage solutions for a broad range of applications.


SGI's controllers provide a new level of reliability, availability, and performance to business with data transfer rates of up to 6Gbps per port. 6Gbps SAS is designed for backward compatibility with 3Gbps SAS as well as with 6Gbps and 3Gbps SATA hard drives. Regardless of the drive speed, 6Gbps MegaRAID controllers will deliver significant performance improvements in both read and write applications as compared to their 3Gbps predecessors. Optional Encryption Services for self-encrypting drives (SEDs) represents a significant step forward in securing a drives data from any unauthorized access or modification resulting from theft, loss, or repurposing of drives. Card management provides the necessary management and protection of SEDs using a simple pass phrase, security key identifier, and security key file, which can be set and applied to all SEDs assigned to a controller.
