Intel RAID Premium Feature Key AXXRPFKSSD enables a form of Flash Tiering called
SSD Cache and Fastpath features.
®
„ SSD Cache uses Solid State Devices as secondary cache for Intel RAID Controllers and
®
is designed to improve read performance of Intel RAID Controller.
„ Fastpath feature can support full optimization of SSD Virtual Disk groups. With this
premium feature enabled, Solid State Drive configurations tuned for small, random blocksize IO activity (typical of transactional database applications) can sustain up to over
150,000 IO READS Per Second.
®
Note: The Fastpath feature is automatically enabled when the Intel RAID Premium Feature
Key AXXRPFKSSD is present.
®
Intel RAID Premium Feature Key AXXRPFKDE enables Full Disk Encryption feature. This
®
feature enables the Intel RAID Controller to manage data security protection for Self
Encrypting Drives (SED).
®
Intel RAID Premium Feature Key AXXRPFKSNSH enables the Snapshot feature. This
feature automatically creates snapshots for stored data on a scheduled basis. Lost data could be
restored from a known good previous snapshot.
With the Feature Key installed, unless noted specifically, the added feature must be enabled and/or
configured using the RAID BIOS Console utility or RAID Web Console 2 utility. For detailed
®
information on enabling and configuring the feature key option, please refer to the Intel RAID
