Adaptec® SmartHBA Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) are the 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. Our SmartHBAs offer significant power savings when compared to prior generations and significant power advantages versus competing solutions, resulting in the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for an HBA/basic RAID solution. They deliver a robust and scalable solution that can handle the toughest system workloads and configurations, from an array of high-performance SSDs to high-capacity HDDs.      

Adaptec® Smart Storage Adapters

Microchip's unified Smart Storage stack powers the entire Smart family of Integrated Circuit (IC) and adapter products, leveraging core IP that has shipped in over 30 million servers and delivers one of the industry’s most reliable, highest-performing and lowest power storage controller software platforms.

Adaptec SmartHBA 2100 PCIe® Gen 3  12 Gbps SAS/SATA HBA Adapters

The SmartHBA 2100 Series, available in five different 12 Gbps configurations with up to 24 ports, uniquely combines the capabilities of a full-featured HBA, like the HBA 1100, with those of a basic RAID adapter using hardware RAID. 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 Software stack 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.

SmartHBA 2100 Features

  • 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 devices in the same solution
  • Broad operating system support through highly efficient, low-latency PQI driver (fully open-source for Linux®/FreeBSD® operating systems)
  • Up to 24 native SAS/SATA ports; low-profile MD2 form factor
  • Significant power savings delivers lowest total cost of ownership versus competing solutions

Adaptec HBA 1100 PCIe Gen 3 12 Gbps SAS/SATA RAID Adapters

Forged through the convergence of SAS/SATA protocol controller expertise and many years of board innovation, the HBA 1100 series provides a robust and stable solution that can handle the toughest system workloads and configurations. Available in five different configurations with up to 24 internal SAS/SATA ports, the HBA 1100 offers many density options in a low-profile, MD2 form factor. It delivers the smart connectivity that businesses are looking for, with high-resiliency, low-power operation and the performance required to unlock the capabilities of Flash media.

Adaptec HBA 1100 Features

  • Up to 24 native SAS/SATA ports; low-profile/MD2 form factor
  • Quality and reliability through the unified, hardened Smart Storage stack, which is deployed in over 30M servers
  • Proven compatibility and seamless integration with existing Adaptec solutions that leverage the unified maxView management tool suite for remote and local setup and maintenance
  • Uses the latest 28 nm SmartIOC 2100 SAS/SATA protocol controller to drive efficiency and performance while also offering the industry's lowest power consumption
