MSA60 & P600/256 Controller for DL360 G5

Hello All,

I have looked in the overview for the P600 Controller overview and quickspec my customer
has said they require a raid1 in quickspec it says Raid1+0 and the overview it says Raid1 is
supported.Does the controller support raid1 also how many disk can it support as they will
have 12 disks in the MSA60.Does the standard controller support up to Raid5 with 256MB.

Thanks

Hi

It will only support and give following raid option in Array Configuration Untility
Raid 0
Raid 1+0 (most of the HP array controllers
Raid 5
Raid ADG (Raid 6)

And yes with 256MB cache it will support RAID 5.

I spoke to HP as i did not get a prompt reply.They are saying it supports both in the ACU.Have you actually worked with one installed.As quickspec and the overview are
saying different things.

Raid 1 is nothing but mirroring
& Raid 1+0 is mirroring + Stripping

Both Raid 1 & Raid 1+0 will cost you 50% of the total Disk Capacity. And both RAID 1 & RAID 1+0 is nothing but mirroring.(there not much difference)

And yes I am working on HP server since 5 years and I never got a option of RAID 1 in any proliant server or RAID Controllers.
