            Ordering Information

            As storage demands expand and processing loads grow, it becomes increasingly more difficult for administrators to achieve maximum performance from their applications. The newest line of LSI MegaRAID 6Gb/s SATA+SAS controller cards, built on the LSISAS2208 dual-core ROC, offer unmatched I/O performance for database applications and streaming digital media environments. The MegaRAID SAS 9266-8i controller, with eight internal ports, delivers two 800MHz PowerPC processor cores and a 72-bit DDRIII interface that drives 1GB cache memory. Users can deploy the MegaRAID SAS 9266-8i controller in existing HDD-based server environments for significant performance gains. Alternatively, for users implementing server platforms based on solid-state storage, these next-generation MegaRAID controllers exploit the potential of SSDs for unsurpassed performance and enterprise-class reliability.

            Protect Cached Data with LSI MegaRAID CacheVault Technology or BBU:
            RAID caching is a cost-effective way to improve I/O performance by writing data to a controllers’ cache before it is written to disk. In write-back mode, data written to cache is vulnerable until it is made permanent on disk. To avoid the possibility of data loss or corruption during a power or server failure, LSI offers the CacheVault flash cache protection module or the LSIiBBU09 battery backup unit for the MegaRAID SAS 9266-8i controller. CacheVault flash cache protection uses NAND flash memory powered by a super-capacitor to help protect data stored in the MegaRAID controller cache. The RAID controller automatically writes the data in cache to flash 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 and the system goes on without loss of data. Customers have the flexibility to choose a traditional LiON battery solution or a greener, lower TCO cache protection solution with MegaRAID CacheVault technology.

            Support for Advanced Software Options:
            The LSI 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 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 of software provides essential tools to 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 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.
