Creating RAID 1E

Creating RAID 1E


  • Data on a hard drive will be deleted after the hard drive is added to a RAID array. Before creating a RAID array, check that there is no data on hard drives or the data on hard drives is not required. If the hard disk data needs to be retained, back up the data first.
  • The LSI SAS2308 supports SAS/SATA HDDs and SSDs. Hard drives in one RAID array must be of the same type, but can have different capacities or be provided by different vendors.
  • RAID 0, 1, 10, and 1E lists the number of hard drives required by each RAID level.
