Features of Dell PERC 5/E 256MB RAID Controller for PowerVault MD1000 UT568

The Dell PERC 5/E RAID controller is a hardware RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) controller designed for use in Dell PowerEdge servers and PowerVault storage systems, including the MD1000 model (UT568 is likely a part number or identifier for the MD1000). The PERC 5/E controller offers RAID functionality to improve data protection, performance, and capacity utilization for storage systems.

Here are some key features and specifications of the Dell PERC 5/E RAID controller:

  1. RAID Levels: The controller supports various RAID levels, including RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 10, and RAID 50, allowing you to configure different types of data redundancy and performance configurations based on your needs.

  2. Cache Memory: The controller is equipped with 256MB of cache memory, which helps improve overall performance and responsiveness, especially during write operations. Cache memory allows the controller to temporarily store data before writing it to the disks, reducing the latency and optimizing data access.

  3. SAS Connectivity: The PERC 5/E RAID controller typically uses SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) technology to connect to the storage drives in the PowerVault MD1000 enclosure. SAS is a high-performance, enterprise-grade interface that provides fast data transfer rates and improved reliability.

  4. Battery Backup Unit (BBU): Some configurations of the PERC 5/E controller may come with a Battery Backup Unit (BBU). The BBU helps protect the data in the controller's cache by providing power to the cache in the event of a power failure or system shutdown. This ensures that cached data is safely written to the disks even during power interruptions.

  5. Management Software: Dell provides management software, such as OpenManage Server Administrator, that allows you to monitor and configure the RAID controller and connected storage devices. With this software, you can view the RAID array status, configure RAID levels, and perform maintenance tasks.
