Device Overview

Summary

The 12 Gbps Adaptec SmartRAID 3162-8i /e RAID adapter has 8 internal SAS/SATA ports in a x8 PCIe Gen 3 low-profile, MD2 form factor. Microchip's industry leading Smart Storage stack delivers maximum reliability and best-in-class performance that all RAID levels come to expect, plus unique features like Mixed Mode support (RAID and HBA devices can be used simultaneously), adapter power management (reduces power consumption up to 30 percent), and Advanced Data Management (ADM) features that allow data migration from existing RAID arrays.

The SmartRAID 3162-8i /e RAID adapters include maxCache 4.0, and when coupled with 12 Gbps SSDs, provide maximum read/write bandwidth and IOPS as well as acceleration and latency optimization through caching. The SmartRAID 3162 adapters also includes on-board integrated cache protection, integrating the Zero Maintenance Cache Protection (ZMCP) power source to enable instant cache protection without the need to find additional space for the capacitor module.   The 3162-8i /e RAID adapter also is equipped with maxCryptoTM which offers controller based encryption for any block based storage device.

With broad operating system support and ecosystem compatibility, SmartRAID adapters are easy to implement and scale and the unified maxView management tools and drivers across the Microchip HBA, RAID, and expander solutions enable easy manageability across the entire product line. SmartRAID 3162 adapters are the ideal solutions for high performance enterprise servers that require maximum connectivity and security.
