We have a PowerEdge R730xd Server and we want to install two PCI SSDs.
We have the following 4 Slots:
Does it matter in which Slots we install the SSDs?? (performance issues...) We want to set up RAID 1.
first of all I have to thank you for your question. It took a while to get the right information :)
The RAID controller is not supporting such configuration, so you may try to do a software RAID but then you are not able to boot from it.
The DELL PCI SSDs are special hard drives, they need a additional backplane - but as it is a 730xd there is no space to get this one installed.
So all in all no RAID possible, and installation of DELL PCI SSDs not possible.
It could be that a fusionIO does work but just with a software RAID so w/o boot.
