The LSI SAS 9207-4i4e host bus adapter provides high-performance solutions for internal and external storage connectivity in 1U/2U servers and workstations. The LSI SAS 9207-4i4e offers 8 channels of 6Gb/s SAS, paired with 8-channel PCI Express 3.0, and the 8Gb/s performance eliminates any performance bottleneck. The performance is based on the LSISAS2308 6Gb/s SAS IO controller, which is highly integrated with the latest enhancements of PCI Express and SAS technology.
The LSI SAS 9207-4i4e has one (x4) built-in mini SAS connector (SFF8087) and one (x4) external mini SAS connector (SFF8088), providing SAS and SATA data transfer rate channels every 1.5, 3, and 6Gb/s, capable of achieving over 650K IOPS.
SAS Leadership
LSI provides the industry's broadest portfolio of SAS products and true end-to-end solutions, including controllers, extenders, dual active multiplexers, ROCs, host bus adapters, RAID solutions, and external storage. The LSI's proven SAS core has undergone extensive stress and interoperability testing, resulting in the industry's most powerful and interoperable solution.
LSI has provided over seven leading serial technologies for systems around the world, making it the most experienced driver of storage serial interconnection in the world. Integrators can rest assured that their LSI adapters provide the most advanced and powerful serial technology available.
Fusion MPT™ architecture
LSI SAS host bus adapter based on Fusion MPT™ The SAS controller of the architecture implements LSI's Fusion MPT (Message Passing Technology) architecture. Each controller has embedded PowerPC™ The processor can provide maximum host CPU offloading. Built in intelligence enables the LSI to publish a single binary operating system driver to operate any Fusion MPT controller or adapter. This architecture can achieve high performance, reduce software development, and accelerate time to market.
