I should rephrase my question: shouldn't the whole system be backed up by battery for power outages?

The NVDIMM is powered by supercapacitors long enough for the DRAM contents to be copied to NAND flash. After the copy to NAND flash is completed, the NVDIMM no longer needs power and the original volatile DRAM contents are saved to the non-volatile NAND flash.

What do you think of using NVDIMMs for RAID storage backup? What applications do you think might be a good fit?
