Third-party SSD solutions in ProLiant Gen8 servers
but not covered by the question or the answers.
I have an OCZ 120 gig SSD as system drive on a Proliant ML310e Gen8 server, sitting on SATA port 6. In order to use that port (on the motherboard) for the SSD, I must set the SATA controller to SMART Array controller.
We have purchased two stock HP ML350e Gen8 servers. Ubuntu 12.04 is to be installed in those. The stock, base unit have provision for 6 hard disks for creating RAID in which, one is filled with 500GB Hard disk and others with blank plates. We are planning to buy hard-disks and hard-disk bays for creating RAID array.
I am confused with software RAID, hardware RAID and RAID levels. Kindly help me.
