The growing requirement to store huge amounts
of data with uninterrupted availability and
reliability calls for a high-density point-to-point
RAID storage solution. The MegaRAID SAS 84016E,
the latest SAS/SATA offering from LSI, addresses
any data availability concerns associated with
deploying large number of drives in missioncritical environments. It allows system builders to
direct-connect up to 16 SATA II and/or SAS drives.
Also, by leveraging SAS expander technology,
this adapter can support up to 122 physical devices for the most data-intensive environments.
Designed for greater performance, the MegaRAID
SAS 84016E uses two LSI SAS1068 controllers, a
500MHz Intel processor, 256MB DDRII memory
and a PCI Express host interface. In addition
to supporting all key RAID levels and a battery
backup, LSI offers advanced data protection
features such as Check Consistency, Patrol Read
and background sentry services that find and
correct bad media blocks on disk drives.
Advanced RAID Management
The MegaRAID Management Suite™ provides
the essential software tools to efficiently manage
MegaRAID products. Whether deployed in an
enterprise or small business, LSI offers a collection
of applications and tools including a pre-boot
setup utility as well a full spectrum of online
RAID management utilities. This new suite of
applications allows administrators to adjust
SAS topology views from the system host, controller and disk enclosure down to the logical
and physical drive level. Even with high-stress
enterprise deployments, the powerful MSM
tools easily scale to efficiently configure, monitor and manage RAID volumes locally or over
the LAN network.
Management Indicators
The MegaRAID SAS 84016E supports industry
standard SGPIO, SES and also provides an
option to directly drive sixteen LED fault and
activity indicators. When disks do fail, these
schemes provide visual assistance to quickly
pin-point the faulty hardware.
Remote iBBU Support
The MegaRAID LSIiBBU01 is a battery backup
module that protects the integrity of the
cached data by providing power if there is a
server failure or complete AC power failure.
When power is restored, the data not yet
written to the hard drives can be retrieved
from cache memory. The LSIiBBU01 has
added functionality to automatically charge
the battery pack and communicate with the
host system the battery status, such as voltage, temperature and capacity.
The LSIiBBU01 does not connect directly to
the MegaRAID SAS 84016E adapter, but
instead it uses a supplied 20-pin, 10-inch cable
to connect. Since server and workstation
chassis vary from vendor to vendor, there is
no standard mounting option that addresses
all the desired applications. Therefore, the
LSIiBBU01 battery kit contains the battery and
the cable, allowing VARs and chassis manufacturers to customize the location of the remote
battery to provide the most flexibility within
various environments.
