Dell Shared PowerEdge RAID Controller (PERC) 8 For Dell PowerEdge VRTX Systems User’s Guide


About the Shared PERC 8 card

The Dell Shared PowerEdge RAID Controller (PERC) 8 card installed on the Dell PowerEdge VRTX system supports Single Root Input Output Virtualization (SR-IOV). This feature allows multiple systems to share available hardware resources.

The PERC 8 card allows four server modules to access a local shared storage. Each server module's operating system loads a Virtual Function (VF) driver that allows the server module to communicate with the Shared PERC 8 firmware. Virtual disks located on the shared storage can then be mapped to a server module. From a single server module, you can only access the virtual disks that are mapped to that server module.
