ServeRAID M5210 and M5210e SAS/SATA Controllers
Product Guide
The ServeRAID M5210 and M5210e SAS/SATA Controllers are high performance 12 Gb SAS controllers
for internal disk storage. They are 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. These products are optimized to deliver the performance
that is demanded by the ever-growing I/O requirements of today's enterprises. The M5210 is a low profile
PCIe adapter, and the M5210e is integrated in servers such as the x3750 M4 and x3650 M4 HD. The two
controllers share a common set of upgrades, simplifying inventory management.
The following figure shows the ServeRAID M5210 Controller with an optional cache installed.

Did you know?
The ServeRAID M5210 and M5210e SAS/SATA Controllers are optimized for high-performance, internal
data storage, with a 12 Gbps SAS controller featuring a DDR3 1866 MHz cache memory interface and
PCIe 3.0 host interface.
The ServeRAID M5200 portfolio is designed around several base solutions with upgrades that are rich with
features to satisfy a wide range of storage needs while minimizing parts-on-the-floor upgrades.
Upgrade features, such as support for RAID 6 and 60, performance optimization, and caching with solid-
state drives (SSDs) no longer require a hardware key. They are implemented through Features-on-Demand
(FoD) software licenses.
