Unmatched RAID Performance for Next-Generation Servers and Storage

Today's data center, cloud and high-performance computing environments not only require increased storage capacity to handle massive volumes of data, but are also challenged to protect and deliver data as quickly as possible to meet the needs of applications and end users. To address these performance demands as capacity scales, the newest 6Gb/s SAS RAID controllers from Avago offer a powerful combination of intelligent performance, enterprise RAID data protection and proven interoperability with the latest server platforms based on the PCI Express 3.0 specification. The MegaRAID SAS 9286CV-8e, with eight external ports, delivers two 800MHz PowerPC processor cores and a 72-bit DDRIII interface that drives 1GB cache memory. Powered by the LSI SAS 2208 dual-core ROC, the 9286CV-8e controller includes the latest PCI Express 3.0 and 6Gb/s SAS technology and is designed for configuring external storage enclosures with high-performance SAS hard drives, high-capacity SATA hard drives or application-accelerating SSDs or for building more sophisticated configurations using Avago 6Gb/s SAS Switch products.

MegaRAID CacheVault Technology

MegaRAID CacheVault flash cache protection uses NAND flash memory powered by a supercapacitor to help protect data stored in the MegaRAID controller cache memory. This module eliminates the need for a lithium ion battery traditionally used to protect DRAM cache memory on PCI RAID controllers. The RAID controller automatically writes the data in cache memory to flash storage when a power failure occurs, while the super-capacitor keeps the current going during the process. When the power comes back, the DRAM is recovered from flash storage and the system goes on without loss of data. The benefits of this technology are elimination of hardware maintenance associated with LiON batteries, lower total cost of ownership over the life of the adapter, and more environmentally friendly cache protection.

Support for Advanced Software Options

The family of 6Gb/s MegaRAID controllers are designed to support advanced software options that provide white box channel partners with enhanced performance and data protection capabilities. These new software options help enable end users to address key business challenges while helping to deliver a higher return on their IT investments. MegaRAID CacheCade™ Pro 2.0 software and MegaRAID Fast Path software boost transactional I/O performance of solid state disk configurations, while MegaRAID Recovery software and MegaRAID SafeStore™ software enable enhanced data protection and security.

Intuitive RAID Management Utility

The MegaRAID Management Suite™ software provides essential tools to manage MegaRAID products, whether deployed in an enterprise or small business. Avago offers a collection of applications and tools including a pre-boot setup utility and a full spectrum of online RAID management utilities. This suite of applications allows administrators to adjust SAS or SATA topology views from the system host, controller and disk enclosure down to the logical and physical drive level. Extending to enterprise deployments, these tools scale to more easily configure, monitor and manage RAID and JBOD volumes locally or over the LAN network.
