PowerEdge R610 without Raid controller

Hi,

is there a way to connect the backplane of the R610 directly to its motherboard and so that the OS itself can access the drives without going through a raid controller?

Thanks,

Mike

Hello

I was unable to locate a supported configuration that utilizes the chipset controller.

Thanks

A friend told me, that I could use a Host Bus Adapter. Or won't that work either?

The SAS6 HBA is supported on the R610, but I show only the external version is supported. The H200 supports non-RAID mode disks, it is supported for internal disks on the R610.

Software RAID should still be possible. Right?

Software RAID is software, you can run it on top of hardware RAID, non-RAID, or drives attached to pass-through devices. There are some software storage management systems that have hardware requirements, like storage spaces direct. You should review your software RAID implementation for best practices and requirements.
