mix harddisk in server Proliant DL380 G5 and DL 165 G6

1. Can I use two different types of hard drives/hdd ( scsi and sas ) for Server HP Proliant DL 380 G5  and DL165 G6 ?

     Whether it will cause problems ?

 

2. Can I use two different speed of SAS hard drives ( 10K and 15 K) for Server HP Proliant DL 380  or DL165 ? 

     Whether it will cause problems ?

 

Thank You

1.) A few problems - you cannot have them in the same array, you'll need two controllers, you might need a different PCI riser cage (because the 640x controllers are PCI-x).
2.) No.

Question 1:

You can't mix SCSI and SAS drives, they have a different connector.

 

Question 2:

You can mix 10k and 15k SAS drives, but your raid will work at the lowest speed being 10k then.
