Broadcom 9500-16i Tri-Mode SAS/SATA/NVME HBA Main Picture

This tri-mode host bus adapter (HBA) from Broadcom is a PCI-Express Gen 4 card that adds support for SATA, SAS, and NVMe drives to a workstation or server. This is especially useful for storage-dense rackmount systems that need to hook up more drive bays than the motherboard can natively support, but may have other niche use cases as well. Please note that this does NOT have any RAID functionality built-in; it just presents connected devices to the operating system as individual drives.
