Which MD do I use in VRTX MD1200 or MD1400?
For MD1200 I use Perc H810?
For MD1400 I use Perc H830?

Hi,

Yes, those are the correct cards for those storage devices. There is also the Shared PERC-E which allows you to share the storage among all of the blades.

The question actually would be can I use both MD1400 and MD1200 as expansion of my VRTX?

To the same blade or different ones?

If you use the H810 or the H830 they are dedicated to a single blade and not shared to both of them.

Do I have to purchase two Perc H810 so the two blades access the MD1200 then correct?

Use the external shared PERC, it allows for multiple blades to access the same storage.
