SATA RAID controller 6 ports on ML110

I would like to check whether we can configure RAID 1+0 by using SATA RAID Controller on our ML110.

Apparently it can! That is assuming you mean ML110g4. However, if it is the G3 then I am afraid you cannot (3 drives max in the G3s).

Hi Patrick,

As per the quick specs for HP 6-Port SATA RAID Controller it supports RAID Levels 0, 1, 1+0, 5.

Re: SATA RAID controller 6 ports on ML110

I installed a hardware RAID Controller and added an extra 2 SATA disks to create a RAID-1 store that is fail-safe. Today I would use the Promise TX2300 at about $70.

Only the Operating System goes on to the original single disk.

Only Data goes on to the RAID drive.

There are 4 advantages to this:

1. The hardware RAID drive starts the moment the power is on and is virtually independent of the rest of the computer. It has excellent RAID Array Manager software.

2. You could move the RAID disks and Controller card to another computer in minutes

3. The Windows Swap File and the Data are on 2 separate drives, so the overall system performance is improved.

4. You can rebuild and upgrade the Operating System without disturbing your Data.

I keep working Data on my workstation and I have a backup utility to copy complete files and folders over to the RAID-1 drive on the server as they change.

- Belt & Braces
- LOCKS ( Lots of Copies Keep Safe )

This way I am storing personal Data and family photographs going back to 1984.

Not a very expensive solution and it is very very effective.

Hope that this helps you
