MegaRAID® SAS 9260-4i
Four-Port 6Gb/s PCI Express SATA and SAS RAID Controller
Protect Business Critical Data with the Industry’s Most Trusted
SATA+SAS RAID Controllers
Next-Generation SATA+SAS RAID
LSI SafeStore Encryption Services
LSI™ MegaRAID SATA+SAS controllers provide
a new level of reliability, availability, and
performance to businesses that are facing
storage challenges driven by unprecedented
data growth. With data transfer rates of up
to 6Gb/s per port, the MegaRAID SAS 9260-4i
brings users new features and improved
performance, while continuing to support all
the features of the previous 3Gb/s SATA+SAS
generation. This value line controller, ideal for
cost-sensitive 1U and 2U server applications,
employs the latest in RAID-on-Chip technology,
complies with the PCI Express 2.0 specification,
and provides additional data security using LSI
SafeStore encryption services.
LSI is pleased to introduce SafeStore encryption
services, which include instant secure erase
for self-encrypting drives (SEDs). This technology represents a significant step forward in
securing a drive’s data from any unauthorized
access or modification resulting from theft, loss,
or repurposing of drives. Instant secure erase
cryptographically erases an SED, whether it is
73GB or 1TB, in less than a second. This allows
for secure drive returns or reuse.

File, Web, Database, and
6Gb/s SAS is designed for backward compatibility with 3Gb/s SAS as well as with 6Gb/s and
3Gb/s SATA hard drives. Regardless of the drive
speed, 6Gb/s MegaRAID controllers will deliver
significant performance improvements in both
read and write applications as compared to their
3Gb/s predecessors. Other new features of the
6Gb/s MegaRAID SATA+SAS controllers include
greater signal integrity using Decision Feedback
Equalization, support for more sophisticated
SAS topologies using Expander Self-discovery/
Self-configuration, and additional safeguards to
enhance data protection.
