ProLiant DL380 Gen8 12G controller

Good day all, 

Do you know if a DL380 and DL360 GEN8 server can run 12G drives (12G speed as well) 
I am aware of the need of a 12G PCI controller. (698529-B21)

This is from HPE product Bulletin; NOTE: All 12G SAS Hard drives only operate at 6G speeds in the DL380pGen8.

I am looking forward to your respones on this matter. 



Re: ProLiant DL380 Gen8 12G controller



This is to inform you that DL380p Gen8 can be configured with 12G drives.
Please check the server quickspecs:
Page 46 lists the Storage controllers with their configuration.
you may select one of them.

Also, you select 12G SAS drives from the list mentioned on page 32-38.
The server driveback plane is designed to work on 6G as well as 12G Speeds.

Hope this helps.

Thank you

Re: ProLiant DL380 Gen8 12G controller


As I understood correctly the DL380p gen8 can operate with 12G controllers and drives.

However, in the QuickSpecs for P430 (698529-B21) and P830 (698533-B21) controllers the 12G performance is mentioned only for DL580 Gen8.

So my question is: Will I achieve 12G speed in DL380p gen8 with P430 or P830 and 12G SAS drives or will it be cut to 6G?

Best regards,
