LSI battery backup units are add-on modules that protect against data loss in the event of a server or power failure by providing emergency power to the cache memory. When power is restored, the data not yet written to the hard drives can be retrieved from cache memory.
LSI provides a family of intelligent battery backup units (iBBUs) for use with its high-performance RAID controllers. The LSI iBBUs provide an inexpensive alternative to using an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and a second level of fault tolerance when used in conjunction with a UPS.
The MegaRAID LSIiBBU07, used with the 8880EM2, 9750 Series*, 9260 Series and 9280 Series* protects the integrity of the cached data by providing backup power if there is a complete AC power failure or a brief power outage.
