HP Surestore VA7400

We've HP VA7400 configured with dual controller card. Currently, only one card is functional. I'd like to know the 'battery backup time' that is available incase we've a complete power shutdown (UPS shutdown). Will I lose data ? I was told that there could be data loss since raid gets corrupted once the battery on the controller completely gets drained.
Thank you.
Regards,
kk

Re: HP Surestore VA7400

Hi,

if you shutdown the array properly, all information and data is stored on the disks.

In case of a power outage the batteries will hold the cache up to 7(?) days.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
