HP SC44Ge Host Bus Adapter
Overview
The HP SC44Ge Host Bus Adapter provides customers with the flexibility and speed they have come to expect from HP. The SC44Ge
Host Bus Adapter is ideal for basic RAID (0, 1) and low cost connectivity to tape and HDDs. This adapter supports both 3G SAS and
1.5 G SATA devices. Providing up to 2 Gb/s maximum bandwidth, this HBA provides nearly four times the speed of a dual channel
U320 SCSI adapters. The HP SC44Ge Host Bus Adapter has been thoroughly tested and integrated into many of the HP ProLiant
and Integrity servers. The SC44Ge supports both a 1 x4 internal connection and a 1 x4 external connection.

specifications, please visit: http://h71028.www7.hp.com/ERC/downloads/4AA1-0812ENW.pdf.
Performance
Designed to be as flexible as HP servers, the HP SC44Ge Host Bus Adapter provides support for up to 8
devices (with support for even greater numbers when connected to devices with SAS expander
technology). The HP adapter delivers exceptional system performance, with eight 3 Gbps SAS ports
providing up to 24 Gb/s total storage bandwidth.
HP Server Integration
Fully integrated and tested with most ProLiant servers and management software.
Key Features
SAS technology delivers high performance and data bandwidth up to 3 Gbps per physical link
Mix-and-match SAS and SATA hard drives, lets you deploy drive technology as needed to fit your
computing environment (ProLiant systems only)
Support for SAS tape products
PCIe x8 (2.5 Gb/s bandwidth)
PCI Express x8 capable
Ports
Eight (8) SAS physical links distributed across 1 x4 internal SFF-8484 and 1x4 external SFF-8470
connectors
Provides the ability to support up to 8 devices in a RAID configuration (additional drives
supported through expander technology) or 3.6TB of SAS storage when connected to an
MSA70 external drive enclosure with (25) 146GB drives (HP-UX and OpenVMS only).
Performance
HP's High Performance Architecture sets new boundaries for industry performance expectations!
Transfer rate: 3 Gbps SAS, 1.5 Gb/s SATA (bandwidth per physical link)
24 Gbps total available bandwidth (8 physical links x 3Gbps)
PCIe x8 (2.5 Gb/s bandwidth)
Capacity
Given the increasing need for high performance and rapid capacity expansion, the SC44Ge SAS HBA
with RAID offers:
Eight 3 Gbps SAS physical links supporting up to 2 simultaneous x4 Wide SAS Ports
Up to 3.6TB of storage per PCI slot of SAS storage when connected to an MSA70 external drive
enclosure with (25) 146GB drives (HP-UX and OpenVMS only).
Fault Tolerance
Keeps data available and server running while a failed drive is being replaced (ProLiant models only)
Drive Mirroring (RAID 1): This allocates half of the drive array to data and the other half to
mirrored data, providing two copies of every file.
