Product overview of HP 462830-B21 Dual Ports PCI Controller
The HP 462830-B21 is a RAID controller designed to enhance the performance, scalability, and data protection capabilities of servers. The controller supports both SAS and SATA drives and can be used with various HP servers, including ProLiant DL and ML series. In this article, we will delve deeper into the features and benefits of the HP 462830-B21 Dual Ports PCI Express SAS/SATA FBWC RAID Controller.
A RAID Controller
RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a storage technology that uses multiple hard drives to enhance data protection, performance, and capacity. A RAID controller is a hardware device or software program that manages the RAID configuration and data access.
RAID levels can range from 0 to 6, each offering a different level of data protection and performance. For example, RAID 0 offers high performance but no data redundancy, while RAID 1 provides data redundancy but lower performance.
Features of HP 462830-B21 SAS/SATA FBWC RAID Controller
The HP 462830-B21 Dual Ports PCI Express SAS/SATA FBWC RAID Controller has two SAS/SATA ports, allowing it to support up to 8 drives. This feature provides greater flexibility and scalability when expanding storage capacity.
PCI Express Interface
The controller uses a PCI Express interface, which delivers high-speed data transfer rates and low latency. This interface also ensures compatibility with various servers and operating systems.
SAS and SATA Support
The HP 462830-B21 RAID Controller supports both SAS and SATA drives, giving users the flexibility to choose the type of drive that best fits their needs. SAS drives offer higher performance, while SATA drives are more affordable.
Flash-Backed Write Cache (FBWC) is a technology that uses flash memory to cache data. This technology enhances the performance of the RAID controller by reducing the time it takes to write data to the hard drives. The HP 462830-B21 Dual Ports PCI Express SAS/SATA FBWC RAID Controller comes with a 512MB DDR2 SDRAM memory module and can be upgraded to 2GB.
The HP 462830-B21 Dual Ports PCI Express SAS/SATA FBWC RAID Controller supports various RAID levels, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60. These levels provide different levels of data protection, performance, and capacity.
RAID Migration and Expansion
The HP 462830-B21 Dual Ports PCI Express SAS/SATA FBWC RAID Controller supports online RAID migration and expansion. This feature allows users to change the RAID level or add new drives without shutting down the system.
The HP 462830-B21 Dual Ports PCI Express SAS/SATA FBWC RAID Controller uses FBWC technology instead of batteries to protect cached data. This design eliminates the need for periodic battery replacement and reduces the risk of data loss due to battery failure.
Benefits of HP 462830-B21 Dual Ports PCI Express SAS/SATA FBWC RAID Controller
The HP 462830-B21 Dual Ports PCI Express SAS/SATA FBWC RAID Controller enhances the performance of servers by providing faster data transfer rates and reducing the time it takes to write data to the hard drives.
Increased Data Protection
The HP 462830-B21 Dual Ports PCI Express SAS/SATA FBWC RAID Controller provides data protection through various RAID levels and FBWC technology. These features ensure that data is safe and can be quickly recovered in the event of a drive failure.

What is the primary function of a PCI e controller?
The primary function of the PCI e controller on your computer device is that it serves as the standard interface between your device's primary circuit board, and other external, peripheral components. This affects key areas of your device's functionality, such as graphics, memory, and storage ability.
The PCIe controller is built to oversee point-to-point connections in the context of non-core components. The additional "e" in PCI-e is short for "express", which is a term that was added by manufacturers in a bid to distinguish the new standard of PCIe controllers from the older PCI models.
The supporting PCIe size simply means the number of direct connections that a PCIe slot or card can provide. It can be PCIe x1, PCIe x4, PCIe x8, and PCIe x16. The cutting-edge PCIe 4.0 has a bandwidth capacity of 64 gigabytes per second and transfers at a rate of 16 gigatransfers per second (GT/s).
Why is a good PCIe controller so important?
- Connectivity: A PCIe controller is a vital link between your computer's primary circuit board and other peripheral components. This important function makes this little device indispensable.
- Speed: A PCIe controller impacts speed. Changing the PCIe controller notably improves transfer speeds, drastically increasing the amount of data that can be communicated in a second.
- Upgrades: Multiple PCI express slots present an exciting opportunity for big upgrades in the future.
Some common PCI e controller terms
- Expander card: PCIe card, expansion card, and expander card are all common terms used to refer to hardware, some of which include the Central Processing Unit (CPU), graphics card, or SSDs.
- Host Bus Adapter: This device connects your computer to other networks and storage devices, with your computer playing the role of the host system.
- RAID controller: This device oversees the hard disk drives and translates them into a logical language your computer can understand.
