LSI Logic 8 Port SAS / Serial Attached SCSI Controller LSISAS3800X PCI-X 2x SFF-8470 - New Pull

The LSI SAS3800X card enables large-scale direct attach storage (DAS) arrays through eight external 3Gb/s ports, driving up to 122 SAS and SATA devices. The host bus adapter supports large capacity external server storage RAID and non-RAID enclosures by connecting a 64-bit PCI-X 133 MHz bus with two external x4 SFF-8470 SAS connectors. The SAS3800X demonstrates a significant advantage over parallel SCSI in providing 2400 MB/s external data throughput and cost optimization of SAS and SATA drives.

This controller has two SFF-8470 external connectors.
