5592 - IBM 4 Disk Slot Exp + Controller
(#5592) - 4 Disk Slot Exp + Controller
This 4 disk slot exp. and controller provides a disk backplane that enables the second set of four disk slots in a model 515 and provides a disk controller to run these four disk slots. The disk controller is plugged into either the C4 or the C6 PCI slot of the 515 system unit. The disk controller has 90MB write cache and can provide RAID protection for the disk drives. Mirroring protection is provided via i5/OS.
A minimum of three disk drives are required for RAID-5, providing protection against a single drive failure in an array. A minimum of four disk drives are required for RAID-6, providing protection against up to two drives failing in an array.
#5592 can be used to expand the number of disk slots of the primary i5/OS partition to 8 disk slots or it can provide four disk slots capacity to a second i5/OS partition.
#5592 and #5593 are physically identical, but have different feature numbers to indicate to IBM configurator tools that either i5/ OS or AIX 5L or Linux will be driving the disk slots. The disk controller used is physcially equivalent to the #5776 disk controller.
The 5592 feature is supported on the IBM iSeries 9407-515
