IBM ServeRAID Adapter Quick Reference
The ServeRAID M Series family offers a complete server storage solution consisting of RAID controllers,
cache/flash modules, energy packs, and software feature upgrades in an ultra-flexible offerings structure.
These products are optimized to deliver the performance that is demanded by the ever-growing I/O
requirements of today's enterprises. With data transfer rates of up to 6 Gbps per port and PCI Express 3.0
host interface, the ServeRAID family bring users new features and improved performance, while
continuing to support all the benefits of the previous generation.
Looking for older adapters? You can find reference information for older ServeRAID controllers, all the way back
to the 1996-vintage ServeRAID I adapter, in the ServeRAID Adapter Quick Reference - Archive available at
http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/tips0784.html.
This document provides a summary of the features and specifications of each of the ServeRAID
controllers and SAS HBAs that we currently offer for sale.
Introduction
Whether you are protecting your storage network, enterprise databases, or application network, the IBM®
System x® ServeRAID family of SAS/SATA Controllers and Host Bus Adapters delivers benefits to fit
your requirements. IBM offers the choice of integrated single–port or dual–port RAID controllers.
Combining these controllers with internal disk drives or external storage expansion unit increases storage
capabilities.

ServeRAID M5120 SAS/SATA Controller
The ServeRAID M5120 SAS/SATA Controller is a part of the IBM ServeRAID M Series family. The
M5120 comes as a small form factor PCIe adapter, and it shares a common set of ServeRAID M Series
upgrades available for the entire family, simplifying inventory management. This controller is optimized
for high-performance external data storage with integration of dual-core chip architecture, DDR3 1333
MHz cache memory, and PCIe 3.0 host interface. A portfolio of building blocks allows clients to design
around a bottoms-up approach and caters to a wide array of storage requirements. Upgrade features such
as support for RAID 6/60, performance optimization, and caching with SSDs no longer require a hardware
key. They are implemented through Features-on-Demand (FoD) software licenses.

ServeRAID M5016 SAS/SATA Controller
The ServeRAID M5016 SAS/SATA Controller offers an enterprise grade RAID solution for internal HDDs
and integrates popular 6 Gbps SAS technology into an organization's storage infrastructure. In addition,
M5016 comes with Flash-Backed cache offload, allowing clients to have extended-life cached data
protection in their storage subsystem in the event of an unexpected power outage. This controller uses 1
GB of Flash-Backed cache with super-capacitor technology, eliminating the need for consumable
batteries. In addition, it supports RAID 6 and 60, and self-encrypting drives as a standard feature. The
purchase of additional feature keys is not required.

ServeRAID M5115 SAS/SATA Controller
The ServeRAID M5115 SAS/SATA Controller is a high-performance offering for IBM Flex System™
compute nodes. It enables a high-performance RAID solution composed of combinations of SAS or SATA
drives or high-throughput solid-state drives (SSDs). The offering is designed around a base RAID adapter
with a set of upgrades that are rich with features, designed to minimize parts-on-the-floor, optimized for
storage performance, and consistent with existing industry-leading ServeRAID products.
The ServeRAID M5115 SAS/SATA Controller for IBM Flex System is capable of delivering several
focused solutions depending on business needs, offering two-drive HDD connectivity or support for up to
eight 1.8-inch SSDs or combinations of HDDs and SSDs. Software upgrades include SSD performance
features or an extra layer of redundancy with RAID 6. These solutions are realized by pairing M5115 with
one or more available hardware kits and Feature-on-Demand license upgrades.

These features are described as follows:

RAID 6 Upgrade (90Y4410)
Adds support for RAID 6 and RAID 60. This is a Feature on Demand license.

Performance Accelerator (90Y4412)
The Performance Accelerator for IBM Flex System (implemented using the LSI MegaRAID FastPath
software) provides high-performance I/O acceleration for SSD-based virtual drives by using an
extremely low-latency I/O path to increase the maximum I/O per second (IOPS) capability of the
controller. This feature boosts the performance of applications with a highly random data storage
access pattern, such as transactional databases. Part number 90Y4412 is a Feature on Demand
license.

SSD Caching Enabler for traditional hard drives (90Y4447)
The SSD Caching Enabler for IBM Flex System (implemented using the LSI MegaRAID CacheCade
Pro 2.0) is designed to accelerate the performance of hard disk drive (HDD) arrays with only an
incremental investment in solid-state drive (SSD) technology. The feature enables the SSDs to be
configured as a dedicated cache to help maximize the I/O performance for transaction-intensive
applications, such as databases and web serving. The feature tracks data storage access patterns
and identifies the most frequently accessed data. The hot data is then automatically stored on the
SSDs that are assigned as a dedicated cache pool on the ServeRAID controller. Part number
90Y4447 is a Feature on Demand license. This feature requires at least one SSD drive be installed.
