As the addition to the Adaptec 6 Gbps Series 7 RAID adapter family, the Adaptec 78165 is the first RAID adapter in the market to offer 24 native SAS/SATA ports (8 internal and 16 external) in a low profile/MD2 form factor. The Series 7 RAID adapter family features PMC's 24 port PM8015 RAID-on-Chip (ROC), which combines an x8 PCIe Gen3 interface with 6 Gbps SAS/SATA ports to enable a high performance RAID adapter unmatched by any other ROC in the industry.
The 78165 performs at up to 6.6 Gbps on sequential reads and up to 2.6 Gbps on sequential writes on parity RAID 5, more than doubling the performance of competing host-based RAID adapters. With 16 direct-connected solid-state drives (SSDs), the 78165 can deliver over 450,000 IOPS - nearly 10x the performance of previous-generation RAID adapters.
