HP DL380p - Number of HD


HP DL380p - Number of HD

Hello to all, i'm new of the board :-)

I propose a server hp proliant DL380p with 12 hard disk of 147 GB.

The Smart Array 420i integrated Controller has already 1GB cache. In addition to the drive cage, I need to buy an additional controller?

Theank'You very much

Re: HP DL380p - Number of HD



As I understand, you want to buy DL380p Gen8 with 12 LFF drive bays.


If you see the QuickSpecs, it states that, Twelve LFF SAS hot plug drive bays.
NOTE: This configuration does not support optical drive.
NOTE: This configuration has a built-in expander that is driven by the embedded controller.

NOTE: The 8LFF, 12LFF, and 25SFF drive cage versions are not field upgradeable options from the 8SFF model.


It means that you need not buy additional controller.


Thank You!
