Product Overview for the Dell 405-AAEK SAS-SATA Controller

In the realm of data management and storage solutions, the Dell Perc H730p PCI-E 3.0 SAS 12GBPS SATA 6GBPS Mini Mono Raid Controller (405-AAEK) stands out as a formidable player. This robust piece of hardware plays a crucial role in optimizing data storage and retrieval processes, making it an essential component for businesses and individuals alike. In this comprehensive guide, we'll delve into the intricate details of the 405-AAEK Dell Perc H730p, exploring its features, benefits, and how it can enhance your storage infrastructure.

Understanding RAID Controllers

Before we dive into the specifics of the 405-AAEK, it's essential to grasp the concept of RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) controllers. RAID is a technology that allows multiple hard drives to work together as a single logical unit, providing enhanced performance, fault tolerance, and data security. RAID controllers, like the Dell Perc H730p, manage the data across these drives, ensuring efficient storage and retrieval.

Key Features of the 405-AAEK Dell Perc H730p
  • PCI-E 3.0 Compatibility: The 405-AAEK is built on PCI Express 3.0 architecture, ensuring high-speed data transfer between the RAID controller and the server's motherboard. This compatibility is crucial for optimizing performance and minimizing data latency.
  • SAS 12GBPS and SATA 6GBPS Support: This RAID controller supports both SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) with a blazing-fast 12GBPS data transfer rate and SATA (Serial ATA) with a 6GBPS transfer rate. This versatility allows users to connect a variety of storage devices, accommodating different storage needs and preferences.
  • Mini Mono Form Factor: The Mini Mono form factor of the 405-AAEK is a space-saving design, making it particularly suitable for systems with limited space. Its compact size doesn't compromise its functionality, ensuring it can seamlessly integrate into various server configurations.
  • RAID Levels and Data Protection: The Dell Perc H730p supports multiple RAID levels, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60. Each RAID level offers a unique combination of performance, redundancy, and capacity. This flexibility allows users to tailor their storage configuration to meet specific performance and reliability requirements.
  • Cache Memory: Equipped with cache memory, the 405-AAEK enhances data transfer speeds and overall system performance. The cache serves as a buffer, temporarily storing frequently accessed data and reducing the time it takes to retrieve information.
  • Battery Backup Unit (BBU) Support: To ensure data integrity in the event of a power outage or system failure, the 405-AAEK supports a Battery Backup Unit (BBU). The BBU preserves cached data, allowing the RAID controller to write data to the storage devices even if power is lost temporarily.
Benefits of Using the 405-AAEK Dell Perc H730p
  • Improved Performance: The PCI-E 3.0 compatibility and high-speed SAS 12GBPS support contribute to a significant boost in overall system performance. This is especially crucial in environments where rapid data access and retrieval are paramount.
  • Data Redundancy and Security: By supporting various RAID levels, the 405-AAEK allows users to implement redundancy and security measures for their data. RAID configurations like RAID 1 and RAID 5 provide mirroring and parity, respectively, ensuring data integrity and protection against drive failures.
  • Versatility in Storage Configuration: The support for both SAS and SATA, coupled with multiple RAID levels, offers users the flexibility to configure their storage system according to their specific needs. Whether prioritizing speed, capacity, or redundancy, the 405-AAEK caters to a range of storage requirements.
  • Space-Efficient Design: The Mini Mono form factor makes the 405-AAEK ideal for environments where space is a premium. Its compact design doesn't compromise its capabilities, making it a suitable choice for servers with limited physical real estate.
  • Reliable Power Management: The inclusion of a Battery Backup Unit (BBU) ensures that even in the face of power disruptions, the RAID controller can complete data writes, minimizing the risk of data corruption or loss.
Performance and Scalability of PCI-E Card

The 405-AAEK Dell Perc H730p PCIE 3.0 SAS 12GBPS SATA 6GBPS Mini Mono Raid Controller is designed to provide high performance and scalability for enterprise storage solutions.

In terms of performance, the raid controller supports data transfer rates of up to 12 Gbps SAS and 6 Gbps SATA, allowing for faster data access and transfer. It also features a compact design, which minimizes the space required in the server and allows for more efficient use of available resources.

In terms of scalability, the raid controller supports up to 16 SAS and SATA devices, allowing for increased storage capacity and flexibility. Additionally, it supports various RAID levels, including 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60, which enables data protection and improves performance. It also supports advanced features such as Online RAID Level Migration and Automatic RAID Rebuild.

It's worth noting that the 405-AAEK raid controller requires a PCI-E 3.0 slot to function properly, so it may not be compatible with older server platforms that only have PCI-E 2.0 slots. Additionally, it supports both SAS and SATA hard drives and solid-state drives, so it's important to ensure that the storage devices being used are compatible with the raid controller.

Server Platform Compatibility

The 405-AAEK Dell Perc H730p PCIE 3.0 SAS 12GBPS SATA 6GBPS Mini Mono Raid Controller is compatible with a variety of Dell server platforms, including:

  • Dell PowerEdge servers: R430, R530, R630, R730, R730xd, R830, R930, T430, T630
  • Dell PowerEdge C-Series servers: C4130, C6320, C6420
  • Dell EMC Unity storage systems: 300, 500, 600, and All-Flash
  • Dell EMC UnityVSA storage systems: 300, 500, 600, and All-Flash

It's important to check with Dell for the latest information and support for the specific server platform or storage system that you are using.

Additionally, it's worth noting that the 405-AAEK controller card requires a PCI-E 3.0 slot to function properly, so it may not be compatible with older server platforms that only have PCI-E 2.0 or lower slots. It also supports 12 Gbps SAS and 6 Gbps SATA hard drives and solid-state drives, and it has a maximum cache size of 2GB.
