Lenovo FoD/ServeRAID M5100 SSD Caching Enabler
The SSD Caching Enabler for IBM System x (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 90Y4318 is a Feature on Demand license. This feature requires at least one SSD drive be installed.
