Up to four drives can be installed when you choose the Embedded SATA Non-RAID controller.
All drives within a RAID array should be of the same capacity and rotation speed.
Up to two kinds of drives selected from SAS 10K HDDs, SAS 15K HDDs, SATA HDDs, and SSDs can
be mixed in a system. However, SAS HDDs and SATA HDDs cannot be mixed in the same cage, and
HDDs in the same cage must have the same rotational speed.
Mix configurations of 4Kn sector HDDs and 512n sector HDDs are not supported.

All hard drives within a RAID array should be of the same capacity.
Up to two kinds of drives selected from SAS 10K HDDs, SAS 15K HDDs, SATA HDDs, and SSDs can
be mixed in a system. However, SAS HDDs and SATA HDDs cannot be mixed in the same cage, and
HDDs in the same cage must have the same rotational speed.
To configure a large-capacity RAID array, it is recommended to configure in RAID 6 or RAID 60 in
order to minimize the risk of becoming multiple hard drives failure during the RAID rebuilding process.
The 2.5-inch SAS/SATA SSDs have limited lifetime. Refer to Endurance of SSD for details.

Endurance of SSD
The 2.5-inch SAS/SATA SSDs have limited lifetime, which can only be written a limited number of times
before it fails.
The warranty period of SSD is the stated period of warranty or until the total bytes of written value (PBW)
exceeds the limit value, whichever occurs first. It is recommended to check the total bytes of written value
periodically.
