This system controller component defines the support extended to a Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks which is basically a type of disk array controller device. It functions by managing the physical disks present in the host computer system and representing them as a kind of logical unit attached to the machine. The LSI Logic MegaRAID SAS 8844EM2 RAID Controller is normally located on the computer motherboard as a type of chipset. It is activated once the corresponding device driver for the computer motherboard is installed by the computer user. In some instances it may be supported by a built-in device driver bundled with newer operating system platforms. The implementation of this hardware component and its associated device driver lends support to achieving high levels of reliability for computer systems while limiting the cost of deployment. This is achieved by arranging the storage devices into redundant arrays hence the term for its applied technology.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
This type of hardware component most of the time implements the hardware RAID technology which coined the term RAID controller in obvious reference to its actions. When properly activated in the host computer system this kind of hardware component support can deliver additional disk cache that can substantially improve the data transfer rate for storage devices. Hardware RAID technology which is implemented by the LSI Logic MegaRAID SAS 8844EM2 RAID Controller simply refers to the presence of a dedicated hardware component that can adequately support the implementation of RAID functionality. This is opposed to implementing a similar type of technological strategy using software control. This hardware component can function as a type of mini computer that is equipped with its own processing capability. This capability is ably supported by the device driver which also ensures that data storage and retrieval operations can be accomplished successfully. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and LSI Logic MegaRAID SAS 8844EM2 RAID Controller errors before installing any driver updates.
