Adaptec RAID 81605Z

Series 8 - 12G RAID Adapters

The Series 8 RAID adapter family features Microsemi's 12 Gbps RAID-on-Chip (ROC), which combines a x8 PCIe Gen3 interface with 12 Gbps SAS ports to enable a new generation of high- performance RAID adapters for the 12 Gbps storage ecosystem.

Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection (ZMCP)

A revolutionary advancement that solves BBU deficiencies by providing full protection to cached data with no monitoring, maintenance, disposal, or replacement costs. ZMCP features SLC based NAND flash memory with super capacitor technology. During a system power loss, the flash memory-based cache protection can preserve data for years. Series 8 adapters can be combined with our third-generation AFM-700 flash-based cache protection module to enable instant battery-free cache protection.
