Enabling the Write Cache on existing production Storage Controller ?

Hi People,

I've noticed that in my Storage Controller settings in the Smart Storage Admin, the Cache is not enabled ?

Controller Write Cache disabled ?Controller Write Cache disabled ?

If I just click on enabled is there any outage or data loss ?

The reason I enable it is because I need to improve the prformance of my RAID 5 LUNs.

Thanks in advance.

Yes @Dennis Handly.

What do you think about the risk vs. benefits by enabling it ?
