The SmartHBA 2100 is an ideal solution for server-based storage systems that require maximum bandwidth and I/O connectivity, low power consumption, high reliability, plus options for data availability. The Smart Storage Platform even allows a combination of RAID and raw devices. This is useful in SDS environments where hardware RAID significantly increases OS boot reliability, but full HBA features and performance are otherwise needed. The SmartHBA 2100 also provides enhanced enclosure management capabilities to both RAID and raw devices, and enables enclosure services by providing a virtual SEP to software stacks if needed.

• Combines full HBA functionality with basic hardware RAID

• Offers basic RAID functionality for up to 32 devices supporting RAID levels 0, 1, 10, and 5 in conjunction with full HBA functionality for up to 238 device, in the same solution

• Broad operating system support through highly efficent, low-latency PQIdriver driver (fully open-source for Linux/ FreeBSD)

• Performance of up to 1.7 million random read IOPS with extremely low-latency 4 KB I/Os Highlights

• Up to 24 native SAS/SATA ports; low-profile MD2 form factor

• 12 Gbps SAS data rates using mini-SAS HD connectors

• Significant power savings delivers lowest total cost of ownership versus competing solutions

• The unified maxView management tools and drivers across the Microsemi HBA, RAID, and expander solutions enable easy manageability across the entire product line

• Proven compatibility with existing Microsemi Adaptec solutions, multiple operating systems, servers, enclosures, SSDs, HDDs, and LTO tape drives

• Uses the latest 28 nm SmartIOC 2100 SAS/SATA protocol controller to drive efficiency and performance while also having the industry’s lowest power consumption

• Quality and reliability through the unified, hardened Smart Storage stack, which is deployed in over 30 million servers
