Hi Everyone,

 

today I orderd 4x WD RE 4TB (WD4000FYYZ) and a HP Smart Array P222 for my second Gen8 Microserver.

I´m courios to see how good this would work in the Gen8, specifically the HDD´s.

 

here can you open the product link:

http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=580

 

I have allready a P222 and 4x WD RED 3TB in my first Gen8 and this has been working very well till now.

 

What are you thinking about the WD Datacenter product line?

I'm thinking, unless you're running very demanding apps, that combination should work very well. I do urge you to take the time to run those drives through a tester before putting them into production, something like HD Tune. I think Joe_Miner is one of our best resources on this, along with schoondoggy.

I have 4 4TB RE drives in my MS with a P222 RAID5. All good.

I have used a lot of RE drives and I dont think I have ever had one fail.
