PCIe3 x8 SAS RAID internal adapter 6 Gb (FC EJ1C and FC EJ1E; CCIN 57D7)

Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the PCIe3 x8 SAS RAID internal
adapter 6Gb (CCIN 57D7) that is integrated with the storage backplane (FC EJ1C) in the 9009-41A,
9009-42A, or 9223-42H. Adding of another PCIe3 x8 SAS RAID internal adapter 6Gb (FC EJ1E) enables
the storage backplane to be configured as a split storage backplane in the 9009-41A, 9009-42A, or
9223-42H.
Overview
The PCIe3 x8 SAS RAID internal adapter 6 Gb is an internal PCI Express generation-3 (PCIe3),
serial-attached SCSI (SAS) Random Array of Independent Disks (RAID) adapter that is integrated in the
9009-41A, 9009-42A, or 9223-42H. The PCIe3 x8 SAS RAID internal adapter 6 Gb is part of a composite
feature of the storage backplane FC EJ1C. The adapter contains the SAS RAID controller. The PCIe3 x8
SAS RAID internal adapter 6 Gb is preinstalled in the dedicated internal PCIe3, x8 slot P1-C49 in the
9009-41A, 9009-42A, or 9223-42H. The internal adapter has a data read or write speed of 6 Gbps. The
PCIe3 x8 SAS RAID internal adapter 6 Gb does not have a write cache.
Single adapter configuration
This configuration of the storage backplane in the 9009-41A, 9009-42A, or 9223-42H with one PCIe3 x8
SAS RAID internal adapter 6 Gb supports 12 numbers of 2.5 inches, small form-factor (SFF) hard disk
drives (HDDs), or solid-state drives (SSDs). FC EJ1C also supports a slim DVD bay. The PCIe3 x8 SAS
RAID internal adapter 6 Gb supports the drives to be used as just-a-bunch of disks (JBOD) or as a RAID.
The supported RAID is RAID 0, 5, 6, and 10. Two mini-SAS HD cables connect the PCIe3 x8 SAS RAID
internal adapter 6 Gb to the two SAS ports on the storage backplane. This configuration with one PCIe3
x8 SAS RAID internal adapter 6 Gb does not split the disks in the storage backplane.
Two adapters configuration
To enable the split storage backplane, another PCIe3 x8 SAS RAID internal adapter 6 Gb (FC EJ1E) must
be installed in the other dedicated internal PCIe3 x8 slot P1-C50. The same backplane as in FC EJ1C is
used in the split storage backplane configuration. The two mini-SAS HD cables connect each of the PCIe3
x8 SAS RAID internal adapter 6 Gb to the two SAS ports on the storage backplane. The 12 drives are
then split into two sets of six drives (HDDs or SSDs), each controlled by one PCIe3 x8 SAS RAID internal
adapter 6 Gb. The split storage backplane configuration supports the drives to be used as just-a-bunch of
disks (JBOD) or as a RAID. The supported RAID is RAID 0, 5, 6, and 10. The PCIe3 x8 SAS RAID
internal adapter 6 Gb in slot P1-C49 controls the slim DVD bay. The split storage backplane does not
support the mixing of HDDs and SSDs in the same RAID set.
