MegaRAID SAS 9286CV-8e

Scale out external storage while maximizing data protection with flash cache protection

Currently Viewing:

Large datacenters with thousands of servers face significant manageability challenges. The MegaRAID® SAS 9286CV-8e SAS and SATA RAID controller couples data protection with flash-based cache protection for lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and simpler manageability. CacheVault®  flash cache technology stores write data in onboard NAND flash instead of using battery backup units for a greener, lower TCO approach to protecting highly scalable external storage.
 
  • Connect up to 240 SATA or SAS drives with eight external 6 Gb/s SATA and SAS ports
  • Fit into compact and rack-mounted servers with low-profile form factor
  • Bandwidth to support critical applications and solid state drive (SSD) arrays with PCIe® 3.0 connectivity
  • Balance protection and performance for critical applications with RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60
  • Protect critical data and lower TCO with CacheVault®  write-back flash cache protection
