  • Enable Write Back Cache: Enabling write back cache can significantly improve performance by caching writes in the cache before they are committed to disk.
  • Use larger cache sizes: Larger cache sizes can help improve performance, especially during write-intensive workloads.
  • Use faster disk drives: Use faster disk drives, such as SAS or solid-state drives (SSDs), to take advantage of the controller's 6Gbps transfer rate.
  • Balance your disk workload: Make sure to balance your disk workload across multiple disks to reduce the impact of any single disk failure and to improve performance.
  • Monitor the controller's performance: Regularly monitor the controller's performance using tools such as HP System Management Homepage or HP Smart Storage Administrator to detect any performance bottlenecks or issues.

It is recommended to work with a qualified IT professional to optimize the performance of your storage solution to meet your specific requirements and ensure the best possible results.

About New Bulk Pack Products

Typically, this product doesn't come with software or instructions unless indicated and no Manufacturer’s genuine warranty. You can take note these are not brand new products.

Controller - SAS Controller

A SAS controller is an incredibly vital addition to your device's hardware makeup. A SAS card allows you to seamlessly employ the use of SATA drives to expand your device's storage capacity and the best part - it is unbelievably cost-effective.

If you are on the lookout for the best SAS controller for PC, then you are definitely in good company. Our store sells only the best SATA drives, SAS RAID controller cards, SAS expanders, and SAS controller cards for your high-performance computing needs.

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.
