I am looking at getting an HP ML30 Gen 9 and on reading up on the documentation it appears that the storage controller can be set to AHCI rather than RAID mode.
The HP documentation says the following:
All drives grouped into the same drive array must meet the following criteria:
o They must be either all SAS or all SATA.
o They must be either all hard drives or all solid-state drives.
o Drives should be the same capacity to provide the greatest storage space efficiency when drivesare grouped together into the same drive array.
My question is: does the above apply when the storage controller is in AHCI mode as I would like if possible to run the following:
2x1tb SATA hard disks
2x160gb SSD disks
These would all be mounted in the drive cage.
I do not wish to mirror the above disks or anything like that. I want a simple JBOD.
Apologies in advance if I have asked an obvious question but I did take a look through the other postings and could not get a definite answer.
