Advice on Raid Levels on ML350p Gen8

We are looking to purchase the above and need to have 3 hot swap drives in a raid 5 array.


In previous ML models you had to upgrade the onboard array controller with ram and a battery to achieve this successfully.


Is this the case with the P420 controller in the ML350p Gen8.


Many thanks for the advice.

For the HP Smart Array P420 controller, a cache module of 512 MB FBWC is required to create a
RAID 5, 5+0.


You may refer to the server’s QuickSpecs, section Technical Specifications > HP Smart Array P420i Controller for more information. It is locatable at the following link:
