Keeping electronic data online and available is essential to running a successful business. Making sure that data is protected - while remaining instantly accessible - requires faster, smarter solutions. The MegaRAID SAS 8888ELP, a second generation SAS RAID product from LSI, addresses these demands and boasts being the most powerful internal RAID solution we've offered to date. The MegaRAID SAS 8888ELP adapter features the LSI SAS1078 IC, a powerful I/O storage engine that transparently performs all the data protection, data checking, and restoration tasks. Flexibility best summarizes the features of the SAS 8888ELP. With selectable connectors, one card serves three deployment needs. Users can choose two connectors: two internal, two external or one each. System builders can attach up to 32 disks; choose high performance SAS disks or high capacity SATA drives - or a combination of both - for greater system design flexibility. Finally, this adapter features a replaceable 512MB DDR II mini DIMM cache module. An investment in the 8888ELP brings piece of mind, with its unique ability to operate with both internal or external disk equipment. The MegaRAID SAS 8888ELP is designed to excel in both high I/O transaction and high bandwidth processing. With an integrated 500MHz PowerPC and industry leading 667MHz write cache, and x8 PCI express, the 8888ELP delivers impressive performance numbers - over 1.5GB/s through-put - allowing streaming video or data backup applications run faster than ever with 1MB stripe configurations.
