Maximizing Performance with the 12GBPS 3.0 Interface

To maximize the performance of the Dell 405-AAWU PCI-E 12GBPS 3.0 2x8 PERC H345 Internal SAS/SATA Raid Adapter, consider the following tips:

  • Use a fast disk controller interface: Connect the drives to the controller using fast SAS or SATA interfaces.

  • Make sure the system has enough memory: A lack of memory can limit the performance of the adapter, so make sure the system has enough memory to support the desired performance level.
  • Upgrade to the latest firmware: The latest firmware may include performance enhancements and bug fixes.
