Adaptec® SATA & SAS RAID
3405, 3805, 3085, 31205, 31605
Unified Serial™ controllers deliver scalability and flexibility for
high-capacity SATA drives or high-performance SAS drives
Adaptec Unified Serial controllers deliver the
ultimate in flexibility and performance for
customers who need either high-capacity
Serial ATA (SATA) drives or high-performance
Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) drives, or the
ability to integrate both in a single system.
Leveraging SAS technology, these controllers
deliver the richest feature set in the market.
Adaptec Unified Serial RAID
This Adaptec RAID controller family is a
full line of Unified Serial RAID controllers
designed for entry to mid-range servers and
Hardware features
These controllers support a PCI Express host
interface and up to 256MB ECC-protected
data cache. An efficient Intel processor
delivers excellent performance with low
thermal output. The family includes 4- and
8-port models as well as industry-first 12and 16-port designs. The new Adaptec RAID
3085 with two x4 connectors also offers the
industry’s first path failover for external data
path redundancy.
Advanced data protection
Adaptec RAID Code (ARC) delivers the
industry’s most advanced feature set. The
Adaptec Advanced Data Protection Suite
delivers improved hot spare performance
(RAID 5EE) and a patented RAID 6/60
technology allowing for up to two
simultaneous drive failures.

ARC supports array sizes up to 512TB –
allowing full usage of new, higher capacity
SATA drives. Optimized Disk Utilization
offers the ability to create arrays and utilise
all available capacity on dissimilar drive sizes.
As disk drive capacities grow, replacing a failed
drive no longer results in wasted space on new
larger drives, increasing the value of existing
Easy-to-use storage management
This Adaptec Unified Serial RAID family
operates under Adaptec Storage Manager™,
a one-view tool that centralises management
of all Adaptec RAID products. The software
enables remote configuration and monitoring
of RAID arrays through secure, encrypted
communications. The intuitive management
tool simplifes RAID array creation and
management pop-up tips and online help.
