Product Guide
The ServeRAID M1215 SAS/SATA Controller is a low-cost 12 Gbps internal RAID 0/1/10 solution that can
be upgraded to a cacheless RAID 5 with a Features on Demand (FoD) license upgrade. The M1215
provides two internal mini-SAS HD connectors with eight lanes of 12 Gbps SAS and eight lanes of PCIe
3.0 to facilitate high data transfer rates.
The M1215 controller is a part of the ServeRAID M Series family that offers a complete server storage
solution consisting of RAID controllers, cache/flash modules, energy packs, and software feature upgrades
in an ultra-flexible offerings structure.

Did you know?
The M1215 is an entry-level internal data storage solution that provides hardware RAID capabilities and
advanced features, such as online capacity expansion and RAID-level migration. The optional RAID 5
upgrade and support for self encrypting drives no longer requires a hardware key because the upgrade
functionality is implemented through Features on Demand (FoD) software licenses.
With increased demand for performance and advanced features, the M1215 provides a seamless
migration path to the full-featured RAID controllers, such as the ServeRAID M5210. The information about
existing arrays can be recognized and imported into the new controller without any reconfiguration.
Rigorous testing of the M1215 by Lenovo through the ServerProven® program ensures a high degree of
confidence in storage subsystem compatibility and reliability. Providing an additional peace of mind, this
controller is covered under Lenovo warranty.
