Cost-effective high performance
The Intel® RAID Controller RT3WB080 is an intelligent RAID solution that uses ROC technology, delivering cost-effective, state-of-the-art performance and data protection for high-capacity SATA drive–based systems. The Intel RAID Controller RT3WB080 includes LSI’s SAS2108 6-Gb/s ROC silicon, a native PCI Express 2.0 architecture, and other powerful features such as RAID 6 and advanced RAID management. Compatible with SAS expanders with support for up to 16 physical devices.
Powerful performance and economy
Includes LSI SAS2108 ROC technology, x8 PCI Express* Generation 2 host interface, and 256-MB of 800-MHz cache for excellent performance for budget sensitive mainstream SATA-based storage solutions.
Exceptional data protection
Supports data redundancy using SATA hard disk drives through mirroring, parity, and double parity (RAID levels 1, 5, and 6) plus striping capability for spans (RAID levels 10, 50, and 60).
Inside-the-box design flexibility
True MD2 form factor for low-profile height and half-length adapter slots. Eight internal 6-Gb/s ports allow connection to 6-Gb/s or 3-Gb/s high-performance SATA.
Delivers proactive drive monitoring and automatic error correction. An optional battery backup maintains the integrity of data in transit to drives in the event of a power interruption.
Includes a connector for optional hardware-based keys that easily plug in to unlock advanced software algorithms designed to improve performance and enhance data protection.
