Embedded SATA RAID controller is supported only on Windows operating systems. An optional RAID
controller is required to configure RAID array for other operating systems.
Hot plug insertion/removal are not supported in the Embedded SATA non-RAID controller.
All drives within a RAID array should be of the same type, capacity and rotation speed.
Use the same rotational speed of the SAS hard drives.
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.
Up to two kinds of drives selected from SAS 10K HDDs, SAS 15K HDDs, SATA HDDs and SAS SSDs
