ARC-1224-8i 8 Port PCIe to SAS RAID-Controller

Areca ARC-1224-8i
Areca ARC-1224-8i

Areca’s high-performance PCIe to SAS/SATA RAID host adapters can provide up to 8 x 6Gb/s peripheral devices.

The adapters are based on the same RAID kernel of field-proven external RAID adapter.

Applications that benefit most features from these controllers include NAS, server RAID solutions, web servers, supercomputing, near-line backup, security systems and streaming applications.

Features and Benefits

  • Supports up to 8 x 6Gb/s SAS/SATA HDDs
  • 6Gb/s speed at each port
  • 1GB SDRAM with ECC
  • Online capacity expansion, RAID level/stripe size migration
  • Online volume set growth
  • Redundant flash image for adapter availability
  • Support greater than 2TB per volume set
  • Battery backup module optional (BBM)
  • Multiple ARC-1224-8i adapter can be used simultaneously, if more than 8 HDDs must be controlled
  • Serial bus and SGPIO enclosure management
  • Broad operating system support including Windows, MAC OS X, Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris
