NEW - SAS Connectivity Card for BLADES

SAS Connectivity Card (CFFv) for IBM BladeCenter

The SAS Connectivity Card (CFFv) for IBM BladeCenter is compatible with the HS21 XM and HS12 blades and is a low-cost alternative to the SAS Expansion Card (CFFv) option (part number 39Y9190).

Each BladeCenter server provides redundant connections to the storage system. Users can configure their blade servers with dual-port host bus adapters. This capability now includes the addition of the SAS Connectivity Card.

Through integration, BladeCenter eliminates the cables from the server to the I/O module. This not only reduces the opportunity for misconfiguration, but also helps to lower the expense for cables, to reduce potential points of failure while helping increase storage availability.
Warranty: One year, customer replaceable unit

Planned availability Date : July 3, 2008
