The HPE Smart Array P408 SR Gen10 Controller, supporting 12Gb/s SAS and PCIe 3.0, is ideal for maximizing performance while supporting advanced RAID levels with 2 GB flash-backed write cache(FBWC). This controller operates in Mixed Mode which combines RAID and HBA operations simultaneously.It has eight SAS lanes, allowing connection to SAS or SATA drives, and offers encryption for data-at-rest on any drive with HPE Smart Array SR Secure Encryption. This type-a flexible/modular controller occupies a dedicated storage slot without occupying a PCIe expansion slot and provides enterprise-class storage performance, reliability, security and efficiency needed to address your evolving data storage needs.

In the box

P408i-a controller, no battery



12Gb/s SAS (1200 MB/s theoretical bandwidth per SAS lane). 6Gb/s SATA (600 MB/s theoretical bandwidth per SAS lane)

Background surface scan

Checks drives during inactive periods and automatically remaps bad sectors, ensuring data integrity

HPE SmartSSD Wear Gauge

HPE SmartSSD Wear Gauge reports the amount of lifetime remaining on your SSDs.

Predictive drive failure

Detects possible drive failure before it occurs - allowing replacement of the component before it fails.

On-Line Spares

If a failure occurs, recovery begins with an On-Line Spare and data is reconstructed automatically.

Recovery ROM

This feature protects the user from a firmware image corruption by storing a redundant copy of the firmware image. If the active firmware image becomes corrupt, the controller will use the redundant firmware image and continue operating

2 GB Flash-Backed Write Cache

2 GB 72-bit wide DDR4-2100 Flash-Backed Write Cache provides up to 16.8 GB/s maximum cache bandwidth.
