Minimum one memory kit must be installed.
It is recommended to install memory kits in pairs of two identical DIMMs for dual-channel symmetric
memory configurations to increase memory transfer speed.
At least 5 GB of memory is required for VMware ESXi™ 5.5 and VMware ESXi™ 6.0
Maximum Available Memory
See the table below for the maximum memory size that you can actually use on your system.
The maximum available memory is less than the maximum physical memory supported by your system
because some chipsets require PCI resource space of about 750MB. PCI resource requirements vary

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 type, capacity and rotation speed.
Up to two kinds of drives selected from SAS 10K HDDs, SAS 15K HDDs, SATA HDDs SAS SSDs,
SATA SSD (ME), and SATA SSD (VE) can be mixed.
Mix configurations of 4Kn sector HDDs and 512n sector HDDs are not supported.
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.

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.
Refer to the table below for the write endurance (PBW and DWPD), warranty period and monitoring tool.

PBW(Peta-Bytes Write): Total amount of data that can be written into the SSD. 1PB=1,000TB.
DWPD(Drive Writes per Day): Rewrite capacity of the SSD per day.
Check the lifetime of SSD by monitoring tool regularly.
It is recommended to replace the SSD before it reaches its end of life. For repurchase, please contact your sales representative.
