Cache Protection for RAID Controller Cards

Protect against data loss during power failure

Currently Viewing:

RAID controller cards temporarily cache data from the host system until it is successfully written to the storage media. While cached, data can be lost if system power fails, jeopardizing the data’s permanent integrity. CacheVault® flash cache protection modules and battery backup units (BBUs) protect the integrity of cached data by storing cached data in non-volatile flash cache storage or by providing battery power to the controller.
  • Lower total cost of ownership (TCO) with CacheVault technology by reducing hardware maintenance and disposal issues associated with lithium-ion batteries
  • Battery backup units allow for higher ambient temperatures
  • Provides additional peace of mind for all MegaRAID® controller cards
  • Enjoy configuration flexibility with many chassis mounting options
