Feature-rich RAID with room to grow

The Intel® RAID Controller RS2MB044, part of Intel's portfolio of 6Gb/s SAS adapters, offers unprecedented performance with exceptional data protection and design flexibility. With four internal and four external ports, the Intel RAID Controller RS2MB044 supports both internal drive storage and external JBOD expansion. Using the external SAS ports, multiple JBODs can be connected to a server, providing a scalable and affordable solution for growing storage requirements.

Target applications

Mainstream

Key advantages

Exceptional data protection

Supports data redundancy using SAS or 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

Four internal and four external 6Gb/s SAS ports allow connection to 6Gb/s or 3Gb/s drives both inside and outside a system. With a true MD2 form factor, this adapter is ideal for low-profile height and half-length adapter slots.

Excellent performance

LSI SAS2108* ROC technology, x8 PCI Express* Gen2 host interface, and 800 MHz cache enhance the performance of mainstream applications.

Outstanding availability

Delivers proactive drive monitoring and automatic error correction.
An optional battery backup maintains data without the need for an uninterruptible power supply.

Intuitive, feature-rich management utility

Designed to work with Intel® RAID Web Console 2 and a suite of management utilities. Administrators are afforded the ability to adjust SAS topology views from the system host, controller, and disk enclosure down to the logical and physical drive level. Extending to enterprise deployments, these tools scale to easily configure, monitor, and manage RAID volumes locally or over the LAN network.
