SFF-8087-to-SFF-8087 Multi-lane cables

Use with an internal connector of the 9690SA-8I, 9690SA-8IF, 9690SA-4I, or 9690SA-4I4E 3ware RAID controller.

These cables are for use with a multi-lane-enabled drive backplane that has the SFF-8087 mini SATA/SAS 4i connectors. These cables have multi-lane cable plug connectors on each end (Figure 6).

Figure 6. Multi-lane Cable Serial ATA (SFF-8087)

SFF-8088 to SFF-8088 Multi-lane cables

For use with the 9690SA-8E and 9690SA-4I4E 3ware RAID controller cards, the SFF-8088 cable connects the external card connector to an external enclosure or backplane.

Figure 7. Multi-lane SFF-8088 to SFF-8088 SAS cable

Other Available Cables

Two additional cables for other connectors can be purchased separately:

SFF-8087 to SFF-8470 for external enclosures that require an SFF-8470 (Infiniband) connector

Multi-lane SATA breakout cable (SFF-8087) for direct connection to SATA drives from internal connectors.

Chapter 1. Getting Started

System Requirements

Motherboard and Slot Requirements

A workstation-class or server-class motherboard with an x8 or x16 PCI-Express® slot. A list of systems that have been tested is available at http://www.3ware.com/products/sys_compatibility.asp

Enclosure Requirements

Download AMCC 3ware 9690SA SAS/SATA RAID Manager Driver

In order to attach more than four drives per connector, enclosures with expanders are required.

In order to use enclosure support services, such as locating a drive by blinking an LED or notification of a rebuild, the enclosure needs to support SES (SCSI Enclosure Services). For a list of approved enclosures, see http://www.3ware.com/products/ sys_compatibility.asp.

Internal backplane connector: 4x SFF-8087 Mini Multi-lane 4i External enclosure backplane connector: Multi-lane SFF-8088

Note: Some older external enclosures may have an Infiniband connector, which will require an SFF-8088-to-SFF-8470 cable.

Windows device driver information for AMCC 3ware 9690SE SATA/SAS RAID Controller

The new SAS card makes inroad networks into the SCSI market faster and better. The SAS provides connectivity that is expandable and its scalability better than the previous. The 3ware offers better configuration that has better flexibility with other four PCI express with low profile controlling choices. The 3ware compatibility with the industry's SAS expanders will definitely maximize the scalability. Each of the SAS controllers scales and supports the SAS 128 with other SATA devices. The user has the option using the RAID management software and interface that assures a perfect picture configuration with the full experience of the RAID without the interference of the storage interface. The new 3ware has advanced architecture that supports SATA II and SAS to their full performance including the usage of the 3GB and NCQ features. Both NSQ and 3GB help in the busting of the RAID feature on the 3ware.

Outdated Drivers?

Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates

The 3ware SAS technology is the most preferred interface for the attaching direct server space. SCSI mainstay is for the critical applications that may require levels that are high for native expansion and availability. The 3ware is optimized for the performance requirements of data that may be random and always centralized. The 3ware performance makes the SCSI controller ideal for replacement due to the architecture. The network card has the 8th generation storswitch that helps in the non-blocking of the architecture switch. The 3ware has an onboard RISC processor that works hand in hand with the RAID to offload the hardware raid. The 3ware comes with a bootable array that supports the user's operating system. The 3ware supports the 2TB technology which works with a 512 MB DD R2 memory that has ECC protection. The 3ware comes with a disk drive that has SAS expanders. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for Windows and AMCC 3ware 9690SE SATA/SAS RAID Controller errors before installing any driver updates.
