LSI SAS9280-8e SAS RAID 5/6 controller
LSI MegaRAID® SAS9280-8e for external storage devices
drives. The MegaRAID® SAS 9280-8e, with eight
external SAS/SATA ports, is the ideal solution for
configuring these external enclosures with either
high-performance SAS drives or high-capacity SATA
drives. This second-generation MegaRAID® adapter
features an LSISAS2108 storage processor, the
fastest DDR2 memory today, and a x8 PCI-Express
host interface to provide the ultimate performance
for external applications. Since system builders can
use the MegaRAID® SAS 9280-8e to support one
enclosure design that can be populated with either
SAS or SATA hard drives, they can ultimately reduce
the total cost of ownership, maximize the overall
value of the investment, and reduce the number
of supported versions. The RAID controller supports
all of the important RAID levels including RAID 6
and 60. This is especially advantageous if a large
number of low-priced SATA high-capacity hard disk
drives are used for each RAID array.

The RAID concept (Redundant Array of Independent
Disks) refers to several independent hard disks
which form a large logical drive when switched
together.
Redundancy information is calculated from
several data blocks (except for RAID 0) and saved
distributed to the individual hard disks. Your
operating system no longer accesses the individual
hard disks, but the array.
The actual objective of the RAID concept is to
increase availability and prevent downtimes in the
event of a hard disk failure. However, the theoretical
security of the RAID concept is only as good as
the RAID controller used. Benefit from the Fujitsu
RAID controllers where technology, experience and
practical implementation all ensure the security that
your company needs in the event of an emergency.
