Intel® Raid Controller SASMF8I Product Brief
The eight-port Intel® RAID Controller SASMF8I, powered by LSI MegaRAID* technology, provides a RAID 5 solution for mid- to low-end PCI-Express* server and workstation environments where high performance and reliable data protection are required. With support for both SAS and SATA II drives, customers can now configure custom systems employing a SAS/SATA adapter with high-performance SAS drives or low-cost SATA drives.
The Intel RAID Controller SASMF8I is unique in its ability to seamlessly migrate from an entry-level Intel RAID controller to more full-featured mainstream and scalable Intel RAID controllers in the future. Users can simply plug in a new adapter, which can import and recognize the existing array without any reconfiguration.
All Intel RAID solutions are validated across multiple platforms with Intel® Boards, Chassis, and Systems. Customized training, as well as Intel® service and support, make Intel the one source for customers seeking data protection, increased productivity, and simplified IT.
