RES3FV288, SAS 12Gb/s, 36-Port, PCIe 2.0 x4, RAID Expander

For a low-cost value-added alterative to high port count RAID cards, select the Intel® RAID Expander RES3FV288. As the perfect complement for Intel’s SAS-3 generation RAID cards, the RES3FV288 offers ultimate flexibility for architecting a high drive count (>8 drive) storage solution in any sized system. Designed with a low profile, MD2 form factor, the RES3FV288 can be used in any server add-in card slot including a low profile slot in a 2U rack system. In cases where an add-in slot is not available, the RES3FV288 can even be mounted to a chassis wall or air-duct.

  • Low-cost alternative to high port count RAID cards. Provide a more economic solution that is similar to a high port count card, but has more flexibility as the RES3FV288 can be teamed up with a wide variety 4 or 8 port SAS RAID card/modules providing you with features that are best suited to customer needs.
  • Inside-the-box design flexibility. With a true MD2 form factor, this expander card is ideal for low-profile height and half-length adapter slots. In addition, the card design allows for mounting on chassis walls or ducting. Power can be obtained either from a PCIe slot or a power cable.
  • Excellent performance and data aggregation. The RES3FV288 is capable of allowing Intel’s SAS-3 high port count RAID to reach their optimal performance with transfer rates of up to 12Gb/s per port. Compliance with the SAS 3.0 specification allows for bandwidth aggregation of 6Gb/s target data for transfer at 12Gb/s.
  • Compatible with Intel’s current and future RAID products. Connect any of Intel’s current SAS-3 RAID products to extend 4 or 8 ports up to 20 internal and 8 external ports.
  • Exceptional quality and support. Thoroughly tested across Intel’s SAS-3 RAID product line to ensure ease of deployment; and backed by a 3 year warranty. (Extended 5 year warranty available for optional purchase.)
