Changes in the July 3 update:
* Fixed formatting
* Clarified supercapacitor

Introduction


The ServeRAID M5016 SAS/SATA Controller offers an enterprise grade RAID solution for internal HDDs and integrates popular 6 Gbps SAS technology into an organization's storage infrastructure. In addition, M5016 comes with Flash-Backed cache offload, allowing clients to have extended-life cached data protection in their storage subsystem in the event of an unexpected power outage.

Figure 1 shows the ServeRAID M5016 controller.

Did you know?

The ServeRAID M5016 SAS/SATA Controller uses 1 GB of Flash-Backed cache with super-capacitor technology, eliminating the need for consumable batteries. In addition, it supports RAID 6 and 60, and self-encrypting drives as a standard feature. The purchase of additional feature keys is not required.

The ServeRAID M5016 Battery Tray option part number includes the following items:
  • Battery tray for mounting up to two power modules
  • Important notices flyer
  • Installation and warranty information

The ServeRAID M5016 Battery Tray option is required when M5016 controller is installed in IBM System x3690 X5 (7147) or x3850 X5/x3950 X5 (7143) servers. With one or two M5016 controllers installed in any of these systems, only one battery tray option is required. With three or four M5016 controllers installed in x3690 X5 (x3850 X5 supports up to two M5016 controllers), two battery tray options are required.

Features

The ServeRAID M5016 SAS/SATA Controller has the following features:
  • Auto-resume on array rebuild or array reconstruction after loss of system power

    Auto-resume uses non-volatile NVRAM to save rebuild progress during a host reboot or power failure to automatically resume from the last checkpoint. Auto-resume ensures that data integrity is maintained through the process. The card supports a number of features that are able to be implemented without rebooting the server. Applications such as email and web server benefit from avoiding downtime during transition.

  • Online Capacity Expansion

    Online Capacity Expansion (OCE) allows the capacity of a virtual disk to be expanded by adding new physical disks or making use of unused space on existing disks, without requiring a reboot.

  • Online RAID Level Migration

    Online RAID Level Migration (also known as logical drive migration) provides the ability to migrate a virtual disk from any RAID level to any other RAID level without requiring a reboot. System availability and application functionality remain unaffected.

  • Fast initialization for quick array setup
  • Consistency check for background data integrity

    Consistency check verifies that all stripes in a virtual disk with a redundant RAID level are consistent. The consistency check will mirror data when an inconsistent stripe is detected for a RAID 1 and recreate the parity from the peer disks in the case of a RAID 5 or RAID 6. Consistency checks can be scheduled to take place periodically.

  • Extensive online configuration options: Advanced monitoring and event notification

    Management tools provide convenience for configuration of logical volumes and alerting when errors have occurred or are about to occur.

  • Patrol read for media scanning and repairing

    Patrol read is a background sentry service designed to proactively discover and correct media defects (bad sectors) that arise normally as a disk drive ages. The service issues a series of verify commands, and if a bad block is discovered, the card's firmware uses RAID algorithms to recreate the missing data and remap the sector to a good sector. The task is interruptible based on controller activity and host operations. The firmware also provides an interface where the patrol read task can be initiated, set up for continuous operation, and terminated from a management application. Patrol read can be activated by manual command or automatically.

  • Global and dedicated Hot Spare with Revertible Hot Spare support

    A hot spare rebuilds data from all virtual disks within the disk group in which it is configured. ServeRAID provides the ability to define a physical disk as a hot spare to replace a failed drive. Hot spares can be configured as either global or dedicated. A global hot spare allows any physical drive to be designated as a hot spare. A dedicated hot spare allows the user to assign a hot spare drive to a particular array of the same drive type.

  • Support for RAID levels 6 and 60 and self-encrypting drives as a standard feature (no additional feature keys required)
  • LSI SafeStore support for self-encrypting drive services

    LSI SafeStore encryption services offer instant secure erase and local key management for self-encrypting drives. This technology represents a significant step forward in securing data on a disk drive from any unauthorized access or modification resulting from theft, loss, or repurposing of drives. Instant secure erase permanently removes data when repurposing or decommissioning SEDs. SafeStore local key management provides the necessary management and protection of SEDs using a simple pass phrase, security key identifier, and security key file that can be set and applied to all SEDs assigned to a ServeRAID adapter. This removes the complexity of managing each SED’s unique encryption key, and essentially relieves the administrator of most of the daily tasks of securing data.

  • CacheVault flash cache protection

    LSI CacheVault flash cache protection uses NAND flash memory powered by a supercapacitor to protect data stored in the controller cache. This module eliminates the need for a lithium-ion battery commonly used to protect DRAM cache memory on PCI RAID controllers. To avoid the possibility of data loss or corruption during a power or server failure, CacheVault technology transfers the contents of the DRAM cache to NAND flash (CacheVault flash module - CVFM) using power from the CacheVault supercapacitor power module (CVPM). After the power is restored to the M5016 RAID controller, CacheVault technology transfers the contents of the NAND flash back to the DRAM, which will eventually be flushed to disk.
