RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10

RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10

The controller card supports up to:

  • 6 hard drives.
  • 8 virtual drives. Each virtual drive holds up to 6 hard drives.

Table 9-2 lists the RAID levels available for the number of hard drives present and the maximum allowed failed drives, which cannot be adjacent to each other. A RAID array consists of multiple spans. For example, a RAID 50 array consists of two RAID 5 spans.

  • The failed hard drives cannot be adjacent. For details, see RAID Levels.

When using the SoftRAID, you need to install a RAID key to support RAID 5.
