4 Port PCIe 3.0 12Gb/s SAS RAID Adapter

1x Internal SFF-8643 Port

The Areca ARC-1216-4i is a 4-Port PCIe 3.0 RAID controller that delivers cost-effective solutions for connecting up to 4x 12Gb/s SAS/SATA drives. The 12Gb/s SAS is designed for backward compatibility with 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s SAS/SATA hard drives. The 12Gb/s SAS interface supports both 12Gb/s SAS disk drives for data-intensive applications and 6Gb/s SATA drives for low-cost bulk storage of reference data. The ARC-1216-4i RAID controllers only support directly attach to 4 SAS/SATA drives without supporting the expand function. The ARC-1216-4i default support 1GB on-board DDR3-1600 SDRAM memory.
