Product Overview for the LSI Logic SAS9211-8I Raid Controller

The SAS9211-8I LSI Logic 6GB 8 Ports Internal PCI-E X8 SAS Raid Controller is a crucial component in data storage systems, offering advanced features for managing and optimizing storage arrays. In this comprehensive guide, we will delve into the key aspects of this RAID controller, breaking down its features, functionality, and the benefits it brings to storage solutions.

SAS9211-8I Overview

The SAS9211-8I is a RAID controller developed by LSI Logic, a leading name in the storage and data management industry. It operates with a 6GB data transfer rate and boasts 8 internal ports, making it suitable for a wide range of storage applications. The PCI-E X8 interface ensures a high-speed connection to the host system, facilitating efficient data transfer between the RAID controller and other system components.

Key Features

  • Data Transfer Rate (6GB): The SAS9211-8I supports a 6GB data transfer rate, ensuring swift and efficient communication between connected storage devices. This high data transfer rate is crucial for handling large volumes of data in enterprise environments.
  • 8 Internal Ports: With 8 internal ports, this RAID controller provides versatility in connecting multiple storage drives. This is especially beneficial in scenarios where a considerable number of drives need to be integrated into the storage infrastructure.
  • PCI-E X8 Interface: The PCI-E X8 interface ensures a high-bandwidth connection between the RAID controller and the host system. This is essential for maximizing data throughput and minimizing latency, resulting in an overall improvement in system performance.

RAID Functionality

RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a technology that combines multiple disk drives into a logical unit for data redundancy, performance improvement, or both. The SAS9211-8I supports various RAID levels, providing users with flexibility based on their specific storage requirements.

Supported RAID Levels

  • RAID 0 (Striping): This level enhances performance by striping data across multiple drives, but it does not provide redundancy. It is suitable for applications where performance is prioritized over data protection.
  • RAID 1 (Mirroring): This level creates an exact copy (mirror) of data on two drives, ensuring redundancy. While it doesn't improve performance, it provides data protection by allowing the system to continue operating if one drive fails.
  • RAID 10 (Striping + Mirroring): Combining the benefits of RAID 0 and RAID 1, RAID 10 offers both performance improvement and data redundancy. It involves striping data across mirrored sets of drives.
  • RAID 5 (Striping with Parity): This level strips data across multiple drives and includes parity information. RAID 5 provides a balance between performance and data protection, allowing the system to recover from the failure of a single drive.
  • RAID 6 (Striping with Dual Parity): Similar to RAID 5 but with dual parity, RAID 6 can withstand the failure of two drives simultaneously, providing a higher level of fault tolerance.

Performance and Scalability

The SAS9211-8I excels in both performance and scalability, making it suitable for a variety of storage environments, from small businesses to large enterprises.

Performance Optimization

  • High Data Transfer Rate: The 6GB data transfer rate ensures quick and efficient communication between the RAID controller and connected storage drives, minimizing data transfer bottlenecks.
  • Optimized RAID Levels: Choose the appropriate RAID level based on your performance and redundancy requirements. RAID 0 and RAID 10 offer enhanced performance, while RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 6 provide varying degrees of data protection.
  • PCI-E X8 Interface: The PCI-E X8 interface provides a high-bandwidth connection to the host system, optimizing data throughput and reducing latency for improved overall system performance.


  • Multiple Internal Ports: With 8 internal ports, the SAS9211-8I allows for the connection of multiple storage drives, accommodating the growing storage needs of an expanding infrastructure.
  • Support for Large Storage Arrays: The RAID controller supports large storage arrays, allowing users to scale their storage infrastructure as needed. This is particularly beneficial for businesses experiencing data growth.

Fault Tolerance and Data Protection

Ensuring data integrity and protection against hardware failures are critical aspects of any storage solution. The SAS9211-8I incorporates features to enhance fault tolerance and protect against data loss.

RAID Levels for Data Protection

  • RAID 1 and RAID 10: These levels create mirrored copies of data, providing redundancy. In the event of drive failure, the system can continue operating with the remaining functional drive(s).
  • RAID 5 and RAID 6: These levels use parity information to protect against the failure of a single or multiple drives. The system can reconstruct lost data from the parity information, ensuring data integrity.
  • Hot-Swap Support: The SAS9211-8I typically supports hot-swapping, allowing users to replace a failed drive without shutting down the entire system. This feature contributes to increased system availability and reduced downtime.
Compatibility and System Requirements

Before integrating the SAS9211-8I into a storage system, it's essential to ensure compatibility with both hardware and software components. Additionally, understanding the system requirements is crucial for optimal performance.

Hardware Compatibility

  • Motherboard Compatibility: Verify that the motherboard has an available PCI-E X8 slot to accommodate the RAID controller.
  • Power Requirements: Ensure that the system's power supply can provide sufficient power to the RAID controller, especially if additional power connectors are required.
  • Internal SAS Drives: The RAID controller is designed for use with SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) drives. Confirm that the connected drives are SAS-compatible for seamless operation.

Software Compatibility

  • Operating System Support: Check for compatibility with the intended operating system. The SAS9211-8I typically supports a range of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and others.
  • Driver Installation: Install the necessary drivers for the RAID controller to ensure proper communication with the operating system. These drivers are often provided by the manufacturer and should be kept up to date.
