Both SATA as well as SAS hard drives, can be operated by LSI at SAS3080X-HP storage controller . To control comes the LSISAS1068 chip to use, which also offers RAID functions to protect the stored data more or to improve performance. Among other things, this enables, for example, build a RAID 0, RAID 1 or RAID also 10E.
