Product Overview

The Intel® RAID Controller RS2WG160, with sixteen internal ports, connects up to 16 drives inside the server via direct connec¬tion or passive backplane. In addition, this controller is excellent for growing stor¬age requirements as it can support up to 128 devices by leveraging SAS expander technology. Furthermore, the RS2WG160’s SAS-2 architecture delivers data transfer rates of up to 6Gb/s per port, and brings new features and improved performance regardless of whether the storage solution utilizes 3Gb/s or 6Gb/s SAS or SATA drives.

All Intel RAID solutions are validated across multiple platforms with Intel® boards, chas¬sis, and systems. Customized training, as well as Intel® service and support, make Intel the one source for customers seeking data protection, increased productivity, and simplified IT.

Key Advantages
