OWC 2-port Jupiter mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card

  • Maximum connectivity and performance in a low profile form factor
  • 8 lane PCI Express 2.0 provides fast signaling for high-bandwidth applications and broad compatibility with latest motherboards
  • High performance with 6Gb/s data transfer rates per channel
Whether you're a small or large business or a creative studio, the OWC Jupiter mini-SAS PCIe Host Bus Adapter Card has the speed that you need. The 2-port mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card installs into any computer that accepts a PCIe card to let you experience the extreme performance benefits of OWC Jupiter mini-SAS enterprise-class storage. This performance capability allows the Jupiter PCIe HBA Card to even handle intense video production environments and reduce the likelihood of dropped frames.

More Lanes = More Speed
Mini-SAS is like traffic moving on four lanes on the highway instead of just one lane, so it offers more lanes for data to travel and provides the ability to reach higher speeds. With the mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card, you can use a single mini-SAS connection for up to 24Gbps, or use both connections for up to 48Gbps performance. The mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card supports more than 1,000 SAS addresses and has processing power to support over 500,000 I/Os per second.

Extreme Performance that's easy to install
The low profile mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card comes with a full height bracket and can accommodate an optional low profile mounting bracket that makes it a breeze to install in any server adding SAS 2.0 interface devices to PCI Specification Revision 2.0 hosts. And the mini-SAS PCIe HBA Card is compatible with all major operating systems giving you maximum flexibility.

LSI Technology
Built around LSI technology, Jupiter components are constructed from an award-winning, trusted source to give you maximum peace of mind when using your system.
