Features & Benefits:
The Intel® Host Bus Adapter RS25GB008, a second generation SAS2/SATA3 card with eight external ports, is designed to provide native SAS or SATA external connectivity for users implementing hybrid server platforms connected to external storage enclosures.
This controller optimizes usage of both solid-state storage and large capacity storage configurations built on hard disk drives. The RS25GB008 unleashes the Intel® I/O Processor (Intel® IOP) and throughput potential of Intel® Solid State Drives (Intel® SSD) running in a native SAS/SATA environment. Users deploying this controller in HDD-based server environments are likely to experience significant performance gains compared to previous generation controllers.
