Controller configuration

Hello,
I need to buy 2 servers (probably Proliant DL360 G5) and I'd like to configure 2 different RAID systems : the 1st one for the OS (2 x 36GB HDD SATA, RAID1) and the 2nd for the data ( 4x 36 GB HDD SAS, RAID5).
Does the Smart array P400 allow multiple raid configuration or do I need a second controller ?
I plan to install on 1 server Ubuntu Server Edition. Does someone already did that ?
thanks to all for your help

Hello Forstera,

Yes, Indeed this can be achieved on a P400 Controller.

Refer:

Which version are u intending to install ?

hi Forstera

yes that can be possible with any hp smart array controller not only P400, all of them support multiple RAID Levels in the same controller
