Currently I have Dell Poweredge R610 which has 2 x 73GB SAS and 4 x 300GB SAS drive works fine with windows 2012 R2.
I knew that mix HDDs are not possible on PERC 6/i controller. My question is if I upgrade to PERC H700 controller will I be able to achieve the below configuration
That configuration is supported on both the PERC6/i and H700. Both controllers support mixing of SAS and SATA on the controller. Neither controller supports mixing of drive types within the same virtual disk. As long as the SSD, SATA, and SAS drives are in separate virtual disks you should not have issues. SSDs with different interfaces cannot be mixed(SAS, SATA).

Thank you so much for your reply.
I have also got another question. currently I have got 12GB memory on this server with all 2GB Ram on 6 slots with single CPU Quad core. I am planning to upgrade to 16GB however I am not sure they are using mixed ranks.
My question is can I use mixed capacity? Do those upgrade DDR3 memory modules should be identical as well
may I use on dell R610 with perc6/i as boot:
DELL 480GB 6G 2.5" SATA SSD 7GPY7 SSDSC2BB480G4R ?
DELL INTEL S3500 Series 800GB SATA SSD SSDSC2BB800G4T 0VDPRV?
thanks in adance
