DL360 Gen9 8SFF max Smart Arrays

Hello everyone.

Machine: DL360 Gen9 8SFF w P440ar with 2 SAS 15k drives.
Considering adding new SSD drives.

Questions:

  • Do I need to consider a new Smart Array Controller? I know P440ar supports SSD.
  • Does DL360 Gen9 supports more than one Smart Array Controller? If it does support, makes sense using two controllers?
  • If it does support, how the two controllers know which disks from the 8 slots to use?

Thank you in advance

The backplane must be connected to a single controller.

You can install SSDs in the remaining slots.

You may consider another controller and an external disk chassis for more additional disks.


Hope this helps!

A single backplane belongs to a single controller.

An additional backplane may be connected to another controller.
