  • LSI* SAS2008 IOC controller providing SAS 2.0 compliance including 6 Gb/s data transfer and compatibility with SAS or SATA drives
  • I2C Connector 3-pin keyed connector for out-of-band enclosure management (SES2)

RMS2LL080

  • Eight 7-pin SAS/SATA connectors for up to eight internal ports
  • Eight cables with 7-pin SAS/SATA connectors on each end

RMS2LL040

  • Four 7-pin SAS/SATA connectors for up to eight internal ports
  • Four cables with 7-pin SAS/SATA connectors are included in the standard retail SKU

High scalability and SAS or SATA storage

Ideal for servers and workstations needing high-speed data transfer within a small hardware footprint, the Intel® RAID Module RMS2LL080 and RMS2LL040 deliver a 1U capable design with high-throughput for internal storage applications. This Intel® RAID Controller provides SAS and entry-level hardware Intel® RAID 0, 1, 10, 1E capability that allows compatibility with 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s SAS and SATA hard drives, and SAS expander devices.

The RMS2LL080 and RMS2LL040 use the embedded CPU in the LSI 2008 ASIC to perform RAID 0, 1, and 1E/10. With the reduction in RAID overhead, the RMS2LL080 offers superior internal READ/WRITE performance.

Key advantages

System design flexibility

1U capable SAS Intel® RAID Module connects to the Intel® I/O Expansion Module slot available on most Intel® Server Boards. This module can be used in Intel and third party chassis without the need for a riser card or low profile cutout.

Cost-effective data protection

Provides a low-cost Intel® RAID 0, 1, and 1E solution for entry-level server and workstation environments where high-performance and reliable data protection are required.

SAS or SATA storage

Eight ports to connect SAS or SATA devices within an array. Use SAS drives for speed, reliability, and scalability; use high-capacity SATA drives for budget-friendly storage.

High scalability

Employ JBODs (Just a Bunch of Disks) with support of up to 244 physical devices, or Intel RAID 0, 1, 1E/10 with up to 10 devices.

Ultra thin driver

LSI Fusion-MPT* architecture provides over 290,000 I/Os per second while communicating over the PCI Express* 2.0 Host Bus.
