Reliable and Advanced Protection Mechanism
Cache-to-Flash technology will first flush CPU cache to memory RAM, then flush memory RAM to the M.2 flash module to maintain the upmost data consistency. It leverages the strength of both the BIOS and CPU to quickly backup memory RAM data to the flash module. In order to quickly move data from memory RAM to the flash module, M.2 PCI-Express interface flash module is selected for better performance and less power consumption. In Cache-to-Flash recovery phase, BIOS will check C2F flag status. If C2F flag is ON, I/O cache data will be recovered from the M.2 flash module and then continue normal booting. If C2F flag is OFF, the normal booting process continues. Compared with the traditional BBM solution of 72 hours standard, Cache-to-Flash technology is more efficient, less risky and consumes less power.
