Adaptec Series 7

71605 SAS/SATA 6Gbps PCIe Gen3 RAID Adapter

It’s well known that the effectiveness of data access is crucial to data center and server environments. With robust 6Gbps performance and proven Adaptec reliability, the Adaptec 71605 SAS/SATA 6Gbps PCIe Gen3 RAID adapter is great for entry-level server to high-end server platforms and high-performance workstations.

The Series 7 adapter family features a PMC’s 24-port PM8015 RAID-on-Chip ROC which combines an x8 PCIe Gen3 interface with 6Gbps SAS ports to enable a new generation of high performance, high native port count RAID adapters that are unmatched by any other ROC in the industry. It perfectly balances protection and performance for critical applications, with RAID level of 0, 1, 1E, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60.

The adapter has four internal mini SAS HD (SFF-8643) connectors. It’s able to connect up to 256 SAS or SATA devices using SAS expanders. The intuitive management utilities let you efficiently manage your adapter.

The low-profile MD2 form factor, along with the included low-profile vented bracket, allows for easy installation into any size of server systems.
