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

Flexible, Scalable, Customizable

Utilizing PMC's 16x6G SAS protocol controller, Series 7H 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.

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

Series 7H HBAs can directly connect up to 16 high-performance SSD/HDD devices without expanders to offer the highest performance and lowest latency I/O connection.

Up to 16 SAS/SATA ports allow for maximum I/O throughput, and the OS drivers use MSI-X to leverage all available host CPU cores to achieve maximum performance and utilize full PCI Gen3 bandwidth.

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.
