Adaptec 2278200-R 16 Port PCIe SAS/SATA 6Gbps HBA w/ Data Encryption - Brand New

Adaptec 2278200-R 16 Port PCI Express, SAS, Serial ATA 6.0 Gbps Host Bus Adapter with Data Encryption - Brand New

Alt MPN: ASA-70165He

The Series 7He family of Adaptec by PMC SAS/SATA host bus adapters (HBA) offers the most secure, high performance solution for data centers requiring maximum I/O connectivity and low latency in applications.

Ideal for securing data in data centers, Series 7He adapters ensure that customer sensitive data is encrypted and protected by secure 256 bit AES encryption — as soon as the unique maxCrypto™ key associated with a speci c HBA is removed, data is unreadable.

maxCrypto Technology

Series 7He adapters feature maxCrypto asymmetric cryptographic encryption engine — on the fly hardware data encryption at line speed enabled with HW encryption key. The act of physically inserting and detecting the maxCrypto key into the connector triggers the encryption. Each key is unique to each board and accessible only inside the server. A pairing mechanism protects the data, warning before overwriting data if the key is installed or removed. Utilizing non-volatile memory and a single wire interface, maxCrypto allows for up to 192 bits protected non-volatile memory (NVM) read-only space for customer specified information which cannot be modified by the end user.

Flexible, Scalable, Customizable

Utilizing PMC's 16x6G SAS protocol controller, Series 7He HBAs support both Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial ATA (SATA) interfaces to provide the flexibility to use cost effective, high-capacity SATA drives and/or high-performance SAS drives.

Series 7He HBAs feature a low-profile MD2 form factor and mini SAS HD connectors that facilitate easy installation and cable connections in dense server environments.

New mini SAS HD Connectors and SAS HD Cables

These connectors allow for greater flexibility in configuration options by supporting up to 16 native SAS/SATA ports in a Low-profile MD2 form factor. The new connectors can be combined with a wide range of Adaptec SAS HD cables, including straight connectors or Adaptec's first to market right angle connectors.

Compatibility, Reliability, and Support

Series 7He HBAs have been extensively tested with third-party systems and devices to deliver the utmost in compatibility. These HBAs are equipped with both uEFI and legacy BIOS options as well as a CTRL-A configuration utility and HII-based BIOS tools.
