The LSI MegaRAID SAS 9280-24i4e
Here we get our first look at the LSI MegaRAID 9280-24i4e. On the top is a large heat sink that keeps the controller and accompanying chips cool. There are six SFF-8087 ports that each carry four channels and on the back is an SFF-8088 external port that carries an additional four channels.
The back side of the controller is fairly uneventful other than a few surface mount components.
Here we see the external I/O panel that has the SFF-8088 port for connecting the 9280-24i4e to an external storage array.
On the side of the controller we see the four SFF-8087 internal ports.
The back side of the controller carries the additional two SFF-8087 ports.
The controller connects to your server through a PCIe 2.0 x8 lane port. You can also install the controller in a full length x16 port.
