Overview
ServeRAID-MR10is VAULT is a RAID controller with built-in crypto engine to encrypt data written
to the hard drives. With an easy to use GUI it simplifies the complexity of key management,
setup and configuration.
This leading edge implementation helps lower the total cost of securing stored data. This
controller benefits the following usage scenarios:
• Robust protection against theft of sensitive data on stolen harddrives
– In an unsecure physical environment
– From insiders in a secure location

• Lowered cost of drive disposal or redeployment by making the stored data more difficult to
access
• Enhanced encryption security and performance over software encryption solutions
Sensitive data can include patient records in medical offices, hospitals, and insurance
companies, credit card or transaction data at retail stores, restaurants, and so on, bank records,
personnel records, intellectual property, financial records and others.
ServeRAID-MR10is VAULT SAS/SATA Controller is a PCIe RAID controller with stored
data encryption for Internal System RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 50, 6, 60. This full height, half length
adapter utilizes an LSI 1078DE controller with an x8 PCI Express host interface, eight internal
SAS/SATA II 3 Gb/s ports and battery backed 256 MB 72 bit ECC DDR2 cache. MegaRAID
Storage Manager (MSM), included with ServeRAID-MR10is, is a robust RAID and encryption
management, configuration, and reporting application. The included battery enhances the
ServeRAID-MR10is controller's performance by allowing data written to disk to be cached in
battery- backed high-speed memory. The battery provides protection of cached data during an
unexpected power outage.
The ServeRAID-MR10 VAULT SAS/SATA PCIe Controllers are covered by a one-year, limited
warranty. Batteries are consumables; therefore, batteries are not covered under this warranty.
Features, functions, and benefits include:
• SAS/SATA II
• PCIe x8 bus
• RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 50, 6, 60
• Stored data encryption
• Fixed 256 MB 72-bit BBU DDR2 cache memory
• Up to 72 hours cache backup with battery standard
• 2 x4 internal mini-SAS SFF-8087 connectors
• Up to 3 Gb/second of performance throughput for each port
• LSI 1078DE controller
• Global hot spare and rebuild
• Supported utilities: MegaRAID Storage Manager (MSM), IBM Director, Dynamic Systems
Analysis (DSA), Command Line Interface (CLI), and flash drive
• Support on x3200 M2, x3250 M2, x3350, x3400, x3500, x3650, x3655, x3850 M2, and x3950
