At a guess (based on the PowerEdge 850 I have here) its an Adaptec
AAR-2610SA card (6-port SATA), which uses the standard aacraid driver.

"lspci -v" should give you a little more information. for example,
another AAR card I have:

02:0c.0 RAID bus controller: Adaptec AAC-RAID (rev 01)
	Subsystem: Adaptec AAR-2410SA PCI SATA 4ch (Jaguar II)
	Flags: bus master, 66MHz, slow devsel, latency 64, IRQ 26
	Memory at c0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=64M]
	Expansion ROM at dfe00000 [disabled] [size=32K]
	Capabilities: <access denied>
	Kernel driver in use: aacraid
	Kernel modules: aacraid

I've never, personally, got very far with this. I know Adaptec have a
Java based management tool if you dig hard enough. I'm not sure if OMSA
supports these cards (they're also known as CERC cards).
