It's also worth noting that the 405-AAEB controller card is designed for use with Dell PowerEdge servers, so it may not be compatible with other server platforms.
RAID Support and Configuration
The 405-AAEB Dell SAS 12GBPS PCI Express Dual Channel External Controller Card supports a variety of RAID levels, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60. This allows for a range of options for data protection and performance optimization depending on the specific needs of the storage environment.
To configure RAID on the 405-AAEB controller card, the following steps can be taken:
- Install the controller card into an available PCI Express slot on the server and connect it to the external storage device or devices.
- Boot the server and enter the RAID controller's BIOS setup utility by pressing the appropriate key during the boot process (usually F10 or Ctrl+R).
- In the BIOS setup utility, navigate to the RAID configuration menu and select the RAID level that you want to use.
- Create a new virtual disk by selecting the physical disks that you want to include in the RAID array and specifying the RAID level.
- Initialize the virtual disk and create a RAID volume by specifying the RAID level, RAID size, and RAID stripe size.
- Exit the BIOS setup utility and boot the server into the operating system. The RAID volume should now be recognized and can be used as a regular storage device.
It's important to note that the specific steps and options may vary depending on the specific version of the RAID controller's BIOS and the operating system being used. Additionally, before performing any RAID configurations, it's important to have a backup of all the important data, as these configurations can lead to data loss if done incorrectly.

SAS Controller - What Is It?
A SAS controller has a similar infrastructure and shares quite a number of features with the SATA hard drive. You can plug a SATA drive into your SAS controller, but on the other hand, you cannot do the opposite with your SAS drives.
In comparison, SAS drives far outmatch the performance of SATA drives. Furthermore, unlike the design of SATA drives, SAS drives can withstand the rigor of 24/7 usage.
SATA vs. SAS controller cards
The SATA interface has simplified the process of choosing a new hard drive for your computer. The SATA interface lets you simply plug in a device to gain access to extra storage.
The SAS controller, on the other hand, may just be the next improvement to the SATA interface. SAS (meaning Serial Attached SCSI), is notably known to perform significantly faster than a SATA controller. And more recent versions of the SAS controllers support up to twice the transfer speed of the SATA controller with transfer speeds of up to 12 gigabits per second.
SAS controller cards are also full-duplex; this means that a SAS controller can both send and receive data at full speeds at the same time. The SATA controller on the other hand can only communicate data in one direction at a time.
