The Series 7H adaptors feature both external and internal port versions, with either two or four ports. These SFF-8643 connectors enable the only 16 native port LP MD2 HBA on the market.
These HBA's are powered by the 16 port PM8018 controller and are SAS 2.0 compliant. The random read speed is in excess of 1 million IOPS with the 512B block size and 800,000 IOPS with 4K blocks.
The 'e' in the 7He stands for encryption, which is the key differentiator for these two HBA's. These are the industry's only encrypted HBA's.
The 16 port PM8019 powers this controller and provides the MaxCrypto engine encryption. An optional line-speed enabled hardware encryption key is also available. These controllers also feature the same speeds listed above, with 1 million IOPS with the 512B block size and 800,000 IOPS with 4K blocks, and 6400MB/s in sequential read and write speeds.
