Mirroring SSD drives in a BL460C

Is it possible to mirror the SSD drives in a BL460c G6?

Thanks

This might not help, but I read somewhere that it was not possible. Don't know why, and I can't see why not.

Hopefully someone knows which and why. :)

There is no Smart Array controller HW available for SSD. If You want to do a mirror You have to use OS mirroring or something else SW based.

Nice Jarkko, you gave him a whole 47 seconds to read your response before slamming him for not giving out points.

Is there documentation of this somewhere?  I fail to see why the E200i on the BL460c wouldn't do hardware RAID of SSD drives... The controller sees them as SATA drives, so what is the diff?

We have mirrored (RAID1+0) HP SSD disks in 35 BL460c G6 blades. So i can confirm that it works. I havn't found anything that says you shouldn't raid the SSD's

As of 2014, and whatever firmware release is current we have no problem inserting non HP SSD drives into the tray and into the server and creating a mirror array in hardware. Nothing special, no tricks. Drives are recognized. This is in a BL460c G1 server.
