The Lenovo 03T6739 LSI 9240-8I is a RAID controller card that is designed to provide data protection and performance enhancement for servers and storage solutions. The card is equipped with 8 ports, which support both SAS and SATA 6 Gbps drives, allowing for the connection of multiple storage devices. It uses a PCI-Express 2.0 interface and support RAID levels 0, 1, 1E, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60.
The card has a 6 Gbps SAS interface that supports data transfer rates of up to 600 MB/s per port. It also has a RAID-on-Chip (ROC) processor, which offloads RAID computation from the host server, improving system performance.
This card is designed to work with Lenovo servers and storage solutions, but it is compatible with most server platforms that have a PCI-Express 2.0 slot available. The card also features advanced features such as flash-backed write cache (FBWC) and advanced power management.
It is important to note that the performance of the card will depend on various factors, including the number and type of storage devices connected to it, the RAID level configured, and the workload placed on the system. The card's advanced features and support for multiple RAID levels can provide data protection and performance enhancement, but it's important to ensure that the system is properly configured and maintained to ensure optimal performance and reliability.
Performance of Megaraid PCI-E
The performance of the Lenovo 03T6739 LSI 9240-8I MegaRAID controller card will depend on various factors, such as the number and type of storage devices connected to it, the RAID level configured, and the workload placed on the system.
The card is equipped with 8 ports that support SAS and SATA 6 Gbps drives, which should provide high data transfer speeds and good performance for applications that require fast access to stored data. The card also has a RAID-on-Chip (ROC) processor, which offloads RAID computation from the host server, improving system performance.
The card supports multiple RAID levels, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60. RAID 0, also known as striping, splits data across multiple disks for improved performance. RAID 1, also known as mirroring, creates a copy of data on multiple disks for data protection. RAID 5, distributes parity data across multiple disks, providing data protection in case of a single disk failure. RAID 6, distributes parity data across multiple disks, providing data protection in case of two disk failure. RAID 10 and 50, provide both data protection and performance enhancement by combining the features of RAID 1 and RAID 0 or RAID 5 respectively.
It's important to note that the performance of the card will also be affected by the overall performance of the server and storage system, as well as other factors such as network infrastructure and software configuration. As the card uses a PCI-Express 2.0 interface, it will not be as fast as PCI-Express 3.0 or 4.0 interface.
It's also important to keep in mind that the performance of the card will also be affected by the overall performance of the server and storage system, as well as other factors such as network infrastructure and software configuration.
The Lenovo 03T6739 LSI 9240-8I MegaRAID controller card is designed to be compatible with most server platforms that have a PCI-Express 2.0 slot available. This means that it can be used in a wide range of servers from different manufacturers and with different operating systems. However, it is important to check the compatibility of the card with the specific server or storage system that you are planning to use it with.
The card is designed to work seamlessly with Lenovo servers and storage solutions, but it is also compatible with most other server platforms that have a PCI-Express 2.0 slot available. The card is compatible with Windows, Linux, and VMware ESXi operating systems, which means it can be used in a wide range of environments.
It's important to note that the card's compatibility with other server platforms and operating systems will depend on the availability of device drivers and other software components. The card requires appropriate drivers and software for specific operating system to be installed for it to work properly and you should check with the manufacturer for the availability of the drivers and software for the operating system you are planning to use.

About New Bulk Pack Products
SAS controllers facilitate the use of SATA drives to increase the storage capacity with extreme ease. You can get the best SAS SATA controllers here on allhdd.com. Our SAS SATA controllers are some of the best you can find around at the best prices.
SATA is the acronym for Serial Advanced Technology Attachment while the SCSI, nicknamed Scuzzy, is short for Serial Attached Small Computer System Interface.
SATA and SAS connectors help link up your computer components, including media and hard drives to the system's motherboard. SATA drives are more affordable and used for personal computing while fast and reliable SAS drives are the best fit for servers.
On the other hand, SAS controllers work flawlessly on SATA hard drives because both share identical infrastructure and possess related characteristics.
If you'd prefer speed over space, then a SAS-based hard drive is your best bet. However, SATA drives on the other hand, while lagging in terms of speed have a much larger storage capacity.
Data Transfer Speed
Throughput is the volume of data that a drive can move, process, or read and write in a specific amount of time. The drive's throughput is usually tested to measure its speed.
The Input/output operations per second (IOPS) may also be measured. However, the IOPS and throughput outcomes usually imply the same things about the drive.
While the SAS drives boast higher throughput than SATA drives; there are fewer general delays. But there is some overlap between the more high-speed SATA drives and slower SAS drives. On allhdd.com, you can shop some of the best SAS SATA controllers from well-known brands across the world.
While a handful of factors affect the drive's performance, the major factor affecting throughput is the revolution per minute (rpm). Consequently, the higher the rpm, the higher the drive's throughput.
The speed variation is most notable when dealing with large files. A SAS drive boasting 15000 rpm will most likely read and write a 1TB file faster than a SATA drive with 7200 rpm.
Most SATA-based drives' usual speed ranges from 5400 rpm to 7200 rpm, and most SAS-based drives run between 7200 rpm and 15000 rpm.

You can use a SATA drive for servers just as you would use a SAS drive. However, the SATA drive would deliver a slower performance and a higher probability of failing or hinting at a failure. This laxity could prove expensive to firms that depend on such drives.
A SAS drive has a mean time between failures (MTBF) that ranges from (1.2-1.6 million) hours of use at 113°F (45°C), while that of a SATA drive is about (700,000-1.2 million) hours of use at 77°F (25°C).
SATA disk drives offer many benefits, including the fact that they boast an unbeatable combination of low cost, high capacity, and performance. Taking advantage of this with SAS SATA controllers could bring a significant return on investment. You can count on a 24/7 customer care center for all issues regarding sales and delivery.
