Adaptec maxCache™ 3.0
Read and Write SSD Caching Solution
(Series 7Q SAS/SATA RAID Adapters 71605Q, 7805Q)
Improves Application Performance up to 25x and Reduces Latency by 25x
The Adaptec Series 7Q SAS/SATA RAID adapters,
with maxCache 3.0, deliver evolved application
acceleration benefits with the industry-first read
caching solution and support for fully redundant
SSD write caching. Adaptec’s 71605Q and 7805Q
adapters can deliver up to 25x improvement in
IOPS and 25x reduction in latency compared to
HDD-only storage arrays.
Adaptec maxCache 3.0 –
The Evolution of Performance
Adaptec maxCache 1.0 offered significant
performance gains for read-intensive applications.
By using SSDs to cache copies of frequently
accessed (aka “hot”) data, maxCache exploits the
performance capabilities of SSDs to store/access
read data from them rather than spinning media.
The read caching function is further improved
with maxCache 3.0, with additional optimizations
to the learned-path algorithm.
Advancing the performance capabilities of SSD
caching to a broader set of application workloads,
maxCache 3.0 has evolved to support write
caching. By caching writes to a redundant SSD
cache pool (either RAID1E or RAID5), maxCache
3.0 leverages the performance and latency
capabilities of SSD technology for both read and
write workloads.
Also new to maxCache 3.0 is the inclusion of the
Optimized Disk Utilization (ODU) feature. As
SSD sizes continue to increase, monopolizing their
entire capacity as a cache-pool is becoming less
attractive. ODU allows the SSD to be partitioned
into both a cache pool and logical device. The
logical partition, unlike the cache pool, is exposed
to the operating system, and can be used to install
an OS to it or store other data that requires fast,
low-latency access.
Integration of maxCache 3.0 SSD caching technology is seamless. Adaptec Series 7Q adapters
do not require changes to storage architectures,
application software or operating systems.

Reduction of Capital
and Operating Expenses
With the acceleration of IOPS and reduction of
latency, maxCache 3.0 allows data center and
cloud computing environments to host more
users and perform more transactions per second
using less server hardware. The reduction in
servers has a direct benefit on capital expenses
for server hardware purchases, and additional
financial benefit of reducing associated operating
costs of power, cooling, and maintenance,
delivering a highly reduced total cost of ownership
(TCO) solution.
Green Solution
Series 7Q adapters include Zero-Maintenance
Cache Protection, a revolutionary advancement
that solves BBU deficiencies by providing full
protection to cached data with no monitoring,
maintenance, disposal, or replacement costs.
ZMCP features 2GB of 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.
Advanced Data Protection
Adaptec RAID Code (ARC) delivers maximum
reliability with RAID levels 0, 1, 1E, 5, 6, 10, 50
and 60 (71605E supports RAID 0, 1, 1E and 10).
ARC also offers RAID Level Migration (the ability
to easily migrate RAID levels), Online Capacity
Expansion (expand capacity without powering
down the server), and Copyback Hot Spare
(when a failed drive has been replaced, data is
automatically copied from the hot spare back to
the restored drive).
Adaptec maxView Storage Manager
Adaptec maxView provides the powerful features
of Adaptec StorageManager™ in an HTML5 web
interface that can be viewed in standard desktop
or mobile browsers without the need for separate
software installation.
Compatibility, Reliability, and Support
Series 7Q supports all major operating systems,
including Windows, Linux, VMware and FreeBSD.
It has been extensively tested with third-party
components to deliver the utmost in compatibility.
The cards are backed by a three year warranty
and the company’s technical support.
