CacheAssure™ TechnologyMaintenance-free cache memory data protectionCacheAssure™ uses supercap technology instead of a battery to protect your cached data. Save time and money by eliminating the need to install, monitor, maintain, dispose, and replace batteries, plus with CacheAssure, taking down the system for battery replacement is no longer a requirement.Typical battery backup units last about 1 or 2 years and only provide up to 72 hours of data protection. With the combination of NAND flash and supercaps, ATTO's CacheAssure Technology provides full protection within minutes of installation. Contents in cache memory get saved immediately in the event of a system failure or power loss and can remain protected for up to 10 years!ATTO's RAID products with CacheAssure Technology deliver a long-lasting and reliable cached data protection solution all without the worries associated with battery-based technology.
