LSI MegaRAID SAS 8708EM2 Controller Review
LSI currently offers three series of SAS RAID controllers: Entry Line, Value Line and Feature Line. The Entry Line MegaRAID SAS 82xx series is the baseline not only in its name but also in its hardware properties. Its controllers do not have dedicated processors or buffer memory and do not support RAID6. Thus, this series is meant for people who donít need maximum performance or high data security. The other two series offer full-fledged controllers but the Feature Line 88xx series is more functional. It comes with more memory and offers external connectors. Thus, it supports more devices connected via an expander.
But today we are going to talk about a controller from the Value Line. Its model name is 8708EM2. Like many other LSI controllers, it has a twin brother selling under the name of Intel SRCSASBB8I. You can see for yourself that these two controllers are much more than just similar-looking.
