Next-Generation SATA+SAS RAID for
External Enclosures
Today’s newest external enclosure designs
are based on architectures that support both
SATA and SAS drives. The MegaRAID SAS
9280-8e and 9280DE-8e, with eight external
SATA+SAS ports, are ideal for configuring these
external enclosures with your choice of highperformance SAS hard drives, high-capacity
SATA hard drives or power-saving solid state
drives (SSDs). With data transfer rates of up to
6Gb/s per port, the MegaRAID SAS 9280-8e
and 9280DE-8e bring users new features and
improved performance, while continuing to
support all the features of the previous 3Gb/s
SATA+SAS generation. These feature line
controllers employ the latest in RAID-onChip technology, comply with the PCI
Express 2.0 specification and provide
additional data security using LSI™ SafeStore
encryption services.
6Gb/s SAS Performance Advantage
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 to 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.
LSI SafeStore Encryption Services
LSI is pleased to offer SafeStore encryption
services, which offer instant secure erase and local key management* 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. SafeStore local key management provides
the necessary management and protection of
SEDs using a simple pass phrase, security key
identifier, and security key file, which can be set
and applied to all SEDs assigned to a MegaRAID
adapter. This removes the complexity of
managing each SED’s unique encryption key,
and essentially relieves the administrator from
most of the daily tasks of securing data.
*local key management is supported only with the 9280DE-8e
