Relax with maintenance-free data protection from Adaptec
What if protecting your company against lost productivity while saving thousands of dollars in IT service and repair costs was as easy as using Adaptec raid adapters?
It is if you’re using Adaptec Series 5Z Unified Serial® (SATA/SAS) raid adapters with Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection (ZMCP - pronounced "zemcap").
The case for using cache
Savvy network administrators know that enabling and protecting the RAID adapter cache offers significant performance benefits while also safeguarding against the loss of cached data during a power or system failure.
No batteries, no worries
raid adapters typically employ battery backup units (BBUs) to protect cached data, but BBUs require constant monitoring and expensive maintenance, and can only preserve data for a maximum of 72 hours during a power loss.
Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection eliminates BBUs in favor of 4GB of NAND flash memory to protect cached data and eliminate the installation, monitoring, maintenance, disposal and replacement costs associated with BBUs.
Adaptec Series 5Z adapters enable full protection within minutes of installation, instantly save cached contents in the event of system power loss, and can preserve cached data for up to 10 years without power. And, since ZCMP is flash-based, systems don’t need to be shut down for battery replacement.
Continuing the legacy of Series 5
Like our Series 5 controllers, high-performance Series 5Z adapters reach speeds up to five times faster than competing products. They support up to 256 SATA/SAS devices and offer Adaptec Intelligent Power Management for up to 70% savings in storage power & cooling costs.
You’ve got enough worries managing your data center. With Adaptec Series 5Z and ZMCP, data protection doesn’t have to be one of them.
