Product Description

Today's external enclosure designs are based on architectures that support both SATA and SAS drives. The MegaRAID SAS 9280DE-8e, with eight external SATA+SAS ports, is ideal for configuring these external enclosures with your choice of high-performance 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 9280DE-8e brings users features and improved performance, while continuing to support all the features of the previous 3Gb/s SATA+SAS generation. The feature line controller employs the latest in RAID-on-Chip technology, complies with the PCI Express 2.0 specification and provides additional data security using LSI SafeStore encryption services. 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 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 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.
