Suggestions for adding drives to existing RAID-1 drive pool..?
Hi all.. I'm new here ..
We've got a 1 year old PowerEdge R350 and initially spec'd it with a pair of 1.92Tb SSD Sata drives (this model here). We'd like to increase our storage pool from 1.92Tb to about 6-8Tb without breaking the bank so to speak.
The server has 6 empty hot-swap 2.5" slots available (of the 8). I don't know if there are any non-SSD drives that would work or just get more of the same drive to add..?
If there are non-SSD drives available, is it a bad idea to mix SSD w/ non-SSD drives -- with or within the same virtual drive?
I just want to make sure I don't buy something I'll later regret.
ps. Our system has a PERC H755 controller if that matters..
