DL380 Gen8 servers -- options for usb or SD card installation of vSphere??

I'm trying to discover and understand what options exist for HP DL380 Gen8 servers to install vSphere on USB media or flash cards or what.

I've been told about HP 32 GB flash cards but not whether two of them can be installed in RAID1, I know there's the 8 GB dual microSD USB devices, but not whether these can be used in a Gen8 server...I would also like to know if the RAID1 USB device can be used with non-HPE microSD cards, which would be cheaper...

Thank you, Tom

as we discussed earlier the usb raid needs gen9 or 10 servers, but this gen8 has an internal sd slot too.

Hope this helps!

Can one use more than one (1) SD card in Gen8 servers??

If so, would they function as a RAID 1??

Thank you, Tom

Thank you, I was afraid you would say that. :)

I will get some good SanDisk flash cards. :)
