Compatibility and System Requirements
The 462967-B21 HP 512MB BBWC Upgrade Kit is compatible with a number of HP Smart Array controllers, including the P400, P400i, P410, P410i, P411, P812, and P712m controllers. It is also compatible with HP ProLiant server models such as the DL380 G5, DL385 G2, DL580 G5, and ML370 G5.
Available PCI Express slot in the server to install the upgrade kit
Proper firmware and driver versions for the Smart Array controller and server
Proper power and cooling for the upgrade kit
Adequate space for the upgrade kit within the server
Proper cabling and connections to connect the upgrade kit to the Smart Array controller
It is important to check the compatibility of the 462967-B21 HP 512MB BBWC Upgrade Kit with your specific Smart Array controller and server model before purchasing and installing the kit. Additionally, it is recommended to check the latest firmware and driver versions for your controller and server to ensure compatibility with the upgrade kit.
Performance and Data Protection
The 462967-B21 HP 512MB BBWC Upgrade Kit is designed to improve the performance and data protection of HP Smart Array controllers. The upgrade kit includes a battery-backed write cache (BBWC) module, which provides a write cache buffer that is protected by a battery. This allows for data to be written to the cache in the event of a power failure, ensuring that data is not lost in the event of a power interruption.
The BBWC module improves performance by increasing the speed at which data is written to the cache. This is done by temporarily storing data in the cache before it is written to the physical drives. This improves the overall performance of the Smart Array controller, particularly in high-performance storage environments where there is a lot of data being written or read.
In terms of data protection, the 462967-B21 HP 512MB BBWC Upgrade Kit provides several key benefits, such as:
- Improved data availability: In the event of a power failure, the BBWC module will ensure that data is not lost by temporarily storing it in the cache. This means that the data will still be available once power is restored.
- Improved data integrity: By temporarily storing data in the cache before it is written to the physical drives, the BBWC module ensures that data is written to the cache in the correct order. This can help prevent data corruption and improve data integrity.
- Improved data backup and recovery: The BBWC module allows for faster data transfer rates to and from the cache, which can improve the speed of data backup and recovery operations.
It's important to note that the 462967-B21 HP 512MB BBWC Upgrade Kit does not replace traditional data backup and recovery procedures. It should be used in conjunction with appropriate data backup and recovery software and hardware to ensure complete data protection.

Cache memory is a miniature version of the RAM, and it is faster than the RAM. It contributes to the overall performance of the Central Processing Unit. Cache memory is responsible for temporarily storing the information and programs that are commonly used by the CPU. There are three types of cache memory L1 (fastest, smallest, and closest to the processor), L2 (situated on the processor chip, high capacity but slower than L1), and L3 (largest capacity and placed on the computer that uses L2 cache). Click cache upgrade to see the available options on allhdd.com.
Battery backup unit
The battery backup unit is essential for the Raid controller; it helps the raid card to remember what hasn't been committed to the disc. The battery backup unit can provide power up to 72 hours without power; this will preserve data. If your system cache options are set to write through or write off, there won't be a need for a battery backup unit, but this makes raid performance sub-optimal. The battery backup unit is made of two major parts, the electronics (used for controlling and communicating with RAID controllers) and a rechargeable battery.
Over time, the battery capacity loses some capacity; generally, the battery has a useful period of about five years. However, this is dependent on several factors.
