DL380e Gen8 server with IBM TS3100

Hi,

 

I've got a TS3100 tapeloader which I want to connect to a (yet to be purchased) DL380e Gen8 server.

 

The HBA in the current IBM server card is a 3Gb/s SAS card.

 

Is the H221 HBA (which is 6Gb/s SAS) the right card for me?  Or is there a 3Gb/s SAS card for the Gen8?

 

TIA.

 

Peter

Just noticed I'll need a SAS Expander card so I can use all the internal drives - and this has 6Gb/s external SAS port for TapeLoaders on it. So I presume I'll need this instead of the H221?
