Marketing InformationData center, IT and general consumer server environments have a broad range of requirements-from basic connectivity to extreme data storage capacities. The Series 8E 12 Gbps PCIe Gen3 SAS/SATA RAID adapters deliver the robustness of hardware RAID in an entry-level solution. They offer significant performance accel-eration over other 6 Gbps adapter card solutions through basic RAID 0, 1, 10 and built-in cache for cost-effective platforms that don't require the full performance and capabilities of our standard Series 8 RAID adapters. The 8805E, with eight internal SAS/SATA ports, is ideal for applications that require more bandwidth. Both models fit the requirements of industrial PC workstations or entry-level servers. The 8405E and the 8805E support a maximum of four and eight devices respectively, as neither support the use of expanders.
Maximum Performance for Entry-Level RAID Adapters
Series 8E RAID adapters can also be coupled with 12 Gbps SSDs, providing maximum read/write bandwidth and IOPS for the most performance-hungry applications. The 512 MB DDR3 (1600 MHz) built-in cache (recommended for read- and write-through caching) provides maximum acceleration.
Advanced Data Protection and Ease-of-Use
Adaptec® RAID Code (ARC) delivers maximum reliability with an industry-leading feature set, including all of the RAID levels the industry has come to expect, plus unique features like flexible configuration modes for the adapter, Hybrid RAID and Opti-mized Disk Utilization (ODU) where no available space is wasted. Adaptec maxView provides an HTML5 web interface that can be used in standard desktops and mobile browsers for all storage configuration and management needs.
Ideal for entry-level 12 Gbps servers and workstations for redundant boot support and I/O intensive applications such as databases or video editing
True hardware RAID 0, 1, 10 (also supports Hybrid RAID)
Performance acceleration through 512 MB DDR3 (1600 MHz) cache
4- and 8-port low-profile MD2 with support for a maximum of 4 and 8 devices respectively
Mixed mode RAID adapter and caching HBA functionality
12 Gbps and 6 Gbps compatibility with SAS/SATA HDD or SSD devices
12 Gbps throughput per SAS port using mini-SAS HD connectors
12 Gbps RAID-on-Chip (ROC), 8-lane PCIe Gen3 interface with 12 Gbps SAS ports to enable a new generation of performance
512 MB DDR3 (1600 MHz) cacheUp to 500K IOPS
