LSI LSICVM02 CacheVault Flash Cache Protection - LSI00418

SC-LSICVM02 image
Part#: SC-LSICVM02

CacheVault Flash Cache Protection Module for 9361 and 9380 Series. This is a highly recommended addition which will protect the contents of your controller cache against power supply failures and driver crashes similar to a BBU, but without the time limitation or replacement requirements. Non-volatile cache backup means maintenance-free service for years.

CacheVault technology provides RAID controller cache protection using NAND flash memory and a supercapacitor. In the event of a power or server failure, CacheVault technology automatically transfers cached data from the DRAM cache to flash. Once power is restored, the data in the NAND flash is copied back into cache until it can be flushed to the disk drives. This technology eliminates the need for Lithium-ION battery backups that are traditionally used to protect cache memory on PCIe RAID controllers.
