Broadcom SAS 9207-8e
Support high-capacity applications and drive massive external storage arrays
The Broadcom SAS 9207-8e host bus adapter provides high performance for 1U/2U mid to highend servers that connect to large scale storage enclosures. The SAS 9207-8e provides 8 lanes of 6Gb/s SAS matched with 8 lanes of PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0, 8Gb/s performance. Performance is based on the SAS 2308 6Gb/s SAS IO Controller that highly integrates the latest enhancements in PCIe and SAS technology.
The SAS 9207-8e has two (x4) external mini-SAS connectors (SFF8088) and provides SAS and SATA data transfer rates of 1.5, 3, and 6Gb/s per lane and can achieve over 650K IOPs.
