This drive expander connects to a dedicated Intel or LSI RAID controller card and increases the number of drives that can connect to it. The connection is made via a SFF8087 cable, so the RAID card must have that type of connector rather than individual SATA ports.

It can be situated in a PCI-E x4 or larger slot, or optionally mounted elsewhere in some cases. If in a PCI-E slot it is powered via that connection; elsewhere it requires a 4-pin Molex power plug.

Model: Intel RES2SV240
