Introduction

The ServeRAID M5115 SAS/SATA Controller is a high-performance offering for Flex System™ compute nodes. It enables a high-performance RAID solution composed of combinations of SAS or SATA drives or high-throughput solid-state drives (SSDs). The offering is designed around a base RAID adapter with a set of upgrades that are rich with features, designed to minimize parts-on-the-floor, optimized for storage performance, and consistent with existing industry-leading ServeRAID products.

The ServeRAID M5115 SAS/SATA Controller for Flex System is capable of delivering several focused solutions depending on business needs, offering two-drive HDD connectivity or support for up to eight 1.8-inch SSDs or combinations of HDDs and SSDs. Software upgrades include SSD performance features or an extra layer of redundancy with RAID 6. These solutions are realized by pairing M5115 with one or more available hardware kits and Lenovo Features-on-Demand (FoD) license upgrades.

The following figure shows the ServeRAID M5115 controller.

Did you know?

The ServeRAID M5115 SAS/SATA controller is optimized for high-performance, internal data storage that integrates a dual-core chip architecture, DDR3 1333 MHz cache memory, and PCIe 3.0 host interface. Upgrade features, such as support for RAID 6/60, performance optimization, and caching with SSDs, no longer require a hardware key, as they are implemented through FoD software licenses.

Optional add-ons to the ServeRAID M5115 controller are RAID 6 support, SSD performance accelerator, and SSD caching enabler. The feature upgrades are as listed in the following table. These are all FoD activations.

Table 2. Supported upgrade features

Part number Feature code Description
90Y4410 A2Y1 ServeRAID M5100 Series RAID 6 Upgrade for Flex System
90Y4412 A2Y2 ServeRAID M5100 Series Performance Upgrade for Flex System (MegaRAID FastPath)
90Y4447 A36G ServeRAID M5100 Series SSD Caching Enabler for Flex System (MegaRAID CacheCade Pro 2.0)

These features are described as follows:

  • RAID 6 Upgrade (90Y4410)

    Adds support for RAID 6 and RAID 60. This is a Feature on Demand license.

  • Performance Upgrade (90Y4412)

    The Performance Upgrade for Flex System (implemented using the LSI MegaRAID FastPath software) provides high-performance I/O acceleration for SSD-based virtual drives by using an extremely low-latency I/O path to increase the maximum I/O per second (IOPS) capability of the controller. This feature boosts the performance of applications with a highly random data storage access pattern, such as transactional databases. Part number 90Y4412 is a Feature on Demand license.

  • SSD Caching Enabler for traditional hard drives (90Y4447)

    The SSD Caching Enabler for Flex System (implemented using the LSI MegaRAID CacheCade Pro 2.0) is designed to accelerate the performance of hard disk drive (HDD) arrays with only an incremental investment in solid-state drive (SSD) technology. The feature enables the SSDs to be configured as a dedicated cache to help maximize the I/O performance for transaction-intensive applications, such as databases and web serving. The feature tracks data storage access patterns and identifies the most frequently accessed data. The hot data is then automatically stored on the SSDs that are assigned as a dedicated cache pool on the ServeRAID controller. Part number 90Y4447 is a Feature on Demand license. This feature requires at least one SSD drive be installed.

    Note: Not all SSDs support the SSD Caching Enabler (CacheCade) feature. See https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/MIGR-5094754 for details. Supported SSDs are listed in Table 5 and Table 7.

Supported configurations

With the ServeRAID M5115, the compute node can support contain up to eight 1.8-inch solid-state drives. The M5115 attaches to the I/O adapter 1 connector and can be attached even if the Compute Node Fabric Connector is installed (used to route the embedded Ethernet controller to chassis bays 1 and 2). The ServeRAID M5115 cannot be installed if an adapter is installed in I/O adapter slot 1.

The following figure shows where the ServeRAID M5115 is installed in an Flex System compute node (x240 is shown as an example).

ServeRAID M5115 installed in the x240 Compute Node
Figure 2. ServeRAID M5115 installed in the x240 Compute Node

The ServeRAID M5115 supports combinations of 2.5-inch drives and 1.8-inch solid state drives:

  • Up to two 2.5-inch drives only
  • Up to four 1.8-inch drives only
  • Up to two 2.5-inch drives, plus up to four 1.8-inch solid state drives
  • Up to eight 1.8-inch solid state drives

The ServeRAID M5115 provides an advanced RAID controller supporting RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 50, and, optionally, 6 and 60. It includes 1 GB of cache, which can be backed up to flash memory when attached to the supercapacitor included with the optional ServeRAID M5100 Series Enablement Kit (90Y4342).

At least one hardware kit is required with the ServeRAID M5115 controller, and there are three hardware kits that are supported that enable specific drive support:

  • ServeRAID M5100 Series Enablement Kit for Flex System x240 (90Y4342) or Flex System x220 (90Y4424) or Flex System x440 (46C9030) enables support for up to two 2.5-inch HDDs or SSDs in the hot-swap bays in the front of the server. It includes a CacheVault unit, which enables MegaRAID CacheVault flash cache protection. This enablement kit replaces the standard two-bay backplane (which is attached through the planar to an onboard controller) with a new backplane that attaches to an included flex cable to the M5115 controller. It also includes an air baffle, which also serves as an attachment for the CacheVault unit.

    MegaRAID 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 memory using power from the supercapacitor. After the power is restored to the RAID controller, the saved data is transferred from the NAND flash back to the DRAM cache, which can then be flushed to disk.

    Tip: The Enablement Kit is only required if 2.5-inch drives are used. If you plan to install four or eight 1.8-inch SSDs only, then this kit is not required.

  • ServeRAID M5100 Series Flex System Flash Kit for x240 (90Y4341, 47C8808) or Flex System x220 (90Y4425) or Flex System x440 (46C9031, 47C8809) enables support for up to four 1.8-inch SSDs. This kit replaces the standard two-bay backplane with a four-bay SSD backplane that attaches to an included flex cable to the M5115 controller. Because only SSDs are supported, a CacheVault unit is not required, and therefore this kit does not have a supercap.

    The v2 Flash Kits (47C8808 for x240, 47C8809 for x440) provide support for the latest high-performance SSDs that the older Flash Kits (90Y4341 for x240, 46C9031 for x440) do not support.

  • ServeRAID M5100 Series SSD Expansion Kit for Flex System x240 (90Y4391) or Flex System x220 (90Y4426) or Flex System x440 (46C9032) enables support for up to four internal 1.8-inch SSDs. This kit includes two air baffles which can attach two 1.8-inch SSD attachment locations and Flex cables for attachment to up to four 1.8-inch SSDs.

The following table shows the kits required for each combination of drives. For example, if you plan to install eight 1.8-inch SSDs, then you need the M5115 controller, the Flash kit, and the SSD Expansion kit.
