Dell LSI 9265-8i x8 PCIe MegaRAID SAS FH

Highest Server RAID Performance for Database and Multimedia Applications
As storage demands expand and processing loads grow, it becomes increasingly more difficult for administrators to achieve maximum performance from their applications. The newest line of LSI™ MegaRAID® 6Gb/s SATA+SAS controller cards, built on the LSISAS2208 dual-core ROC, offer unmatched I/O performance for database applications and streaming digital media environments. The MegaRAID SAS 9265-8i, with eight internal ports, delivers two 800MHz PowerPC processor cores and a 72-bit DDRIII interface that drives 1GB cache memory. Users can deploy the MegaRAID SAS 9265-8i in existing HDD-based server environments for significant performance gains. Alternatively, for users implementing hybrid server platforms based on solid-state storage, these next-generation MegaRAID controllers exploit the potential of SSDs for unsurpassed performance and enterprise-class reliability.

Support for Advanced Software Options
The LSI family of 6Gb/s MegaRAID controllers are designed to support advanced software options that provide white box channel partners with enhanced performance and data protection capabilities. These new software options help enable end users to address key business challenges while helping to deliver a higher return on their IT investments. MegaRAID CacheCade™ software and MegaRAID FastPath™ software boost transactional I/O performance of solid state disk configurations, while MegaRAID Recovery software and MegaRAID SafeStore™ software enable enhanced data protection and security

Enterprise Data Protection
Standard support for the most popular RAID levels and accessories, including RAID 5, RAID 6 and battery backup, further strengthen the data protection capabilities of the MegaRAID SAS 9265-8i. The new intelligent LSIiBBU09 battery backup unit uses heat-tolerant cell technology to withstand ambient temperatures up to 55 degrees Celsius while protecting the integrity of cache in the event of a power or server failure. This resistance to a high-temperature environment along with remote mounting options gives system builders the flexibility to place the LSIiBBU09 away from thermal hot spots in multiple locations throughout the chassis

Intuitive RAID Management Utility
The MegaRAID Management Suite™ of software provides the essential tools to efficiently manage MegaRAID products, whether deployed in an enterprise or small business. LSI offers a collection of applications and tools including a pre-boot setup utility and a full spectrum of online RAID management utilities. This suite of applications allow administrators to adjust SAS or SATA topology views from the system host, controller and disk enclosure down to the logical and physical drive level. Extending to enterprise deployments, these tools scale to more easily configure, monitor and manage RAID and JBOD volumes locally or over the LAN network.
