The 12Gb/s SAS is designed for backward compatibility with 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s SAS/SATA hard drives. The 12Gb/s SAS interface supports both 12Gb/s SAS disk drives for data-intensive applications and 6Gb/s SATA drives for low-cost bulk storage of reference data.

The ARC-1216-4i RAID controllers only support directly attach to 4 SAS/SATA/SSD drives without supporting the expand function. The ARC-12x6 series default support 1GB onboard DDR3-1600 SDRAM memory.
