Minimum one memory kit per processor must be installed.
The configured memories must be identical.
It is recommended to install memory kits in multiples of two (four identical DIMMs) for quad-channel
symmetric memory configurations to increase memory transfer speed.
When two processors are installed, balance the DIMMs across the two processors.
Mix configurations of UDIMM/RDIMM/LRDIMM are not supported

Maximum Memory Speed
See the table below for the actual maximum memory transfer speed in Independent Channel / Memory
Sparing Configuration.
DDR3 memory speed depends on the type of DIMMs, the native memory bus speed of the memory
controller and memory configuration. All memory buses operate at the clock frequency of the DIMM with
the lowest frequency.
The maximum memory transfer rate is 1066 MHz with Memory Sparing Configuration.

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
depending on the type and the number of PCI cards you are using.

Up to four hard drives can be installed in the Embedded SATA configuration.
Hot plug insertion/removal are not supported in the Embedded SATA configuration.
An optional RAID controller occupies one PCI slot.
All hard drives within a RAID array should be of the same 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 can be mixed in one system
For mix configuration, the same kind of hard drives are mounted starting with Slot 0 sequentially, and
the remaining slots can mount different kind of hard drives.
For SAS and SATA hard drive mix configuration, they must be installed in separate drive groups with
multiple of two drives.

the remaining slots can mount different kind of hard drives.

For SAS and SATA hard drive mix configuration, they must be installed in separate drive groups with
multiple of two drives.

A large-capacity RAID array configuration requires long-time rebuilding when to recover from the
failure. In order to improve the reliability, RAID 6 or RAID 60 cofiguration, which supports two hard
drives failures, is recommended as the redundancy becomes invalid during the system recovery.
