PCIe3 RAID SAS quad-port 6 Gb LP Adapter (FC EL3B; CCIN 57B4)

Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FC) EL3B adapter.
The PCIe3 RAID SAS quad-port 6 Gb LP Adapter is a PCI Express (PCIe), generation 3, RAID SAS
adapter that has a low-profile and short-form factor. The adapter is used in high-performance and
high-density, serial attached SCSI (SAS) applications. It supports the attachment of SAS disk and SAS
tape by using four mini SAS high-density (HD) x4 connectors that allow the physical links to be used in
various narrow and wide-port configurations. SAS tape attachment is only supported in a single adapter
configuration and cannot be mixed with SAS disk on the same adapter. The adapter does not have write
cache. Figure 49 on page 110 shows the PCIe3 RAID SAS quad-port 6 Gb LP Adapter.
The adapter is a 64 bit, 3.3 V, bootable SAS adapter that provides RAID 0, 5, 6, and 10 capability, and
system level mirroring via the operating system. The adapter provides both single and dual RAID
controller configurations. Dual controller configurations (dual storage IOA) must run RAID. JBOD (512
byte) functionality is supported only in a single controller configuration based on the operating system.
