For applications demanding high levels of storage connectivity and performance, 16-port 12Gb/s SAS HBAs connect servers and appliances to internal and external storage, achieving close to 2 million IOPS.
The Avago SAS 9300 16-port, 12Gb/s SAS HBA family provides increased connectivity and maximum performance for high-end servers and appliances within internal storage, or connecting to large scale storage enclosures.
The SAS 9300 16-port HBA family is based on the SAS 3008 IO controller, integrating the latest enhancements in SAS and PCI Express® (PCIe) technology. The SAS 9300-16e and SAS 9300-16i support 16 SAS ports operating at 12Gb/s data transfer rates, and can reach close to 2 million IOPS. The 16-port adapter family supports 8 PCIe lanes that comply with the latest PCIe 3.0 specifications. In addition, these adapters are backwards compatible with previous SAS and PCIe generations through automatic negotiation, and provide SAS data transfer rates of 12, 6, and 3 Gb/s per lane, and SATA data transfer rates of 6 and 3Gb/s per lane. Avago Technologies provides a broad suite of industry standard operating system drivers.
