Adaptec Inc. announced the introduction of the Adaptec Series 5Z Unified Serial (SATA/SAS) RAID to its controller line.

Built on Adaptec’s RAID Series 5 architecture, Series 5Z controllers integrate a flash-based Zero-Maintenance Cache Protection (ZMCP) module that provides data center managers with a single controller solution for data protection in the event of both power loss and drive failure, the company said.
