LPAR Placement of 720 Base Raid Controller



fixed

*I can't put the PCIe card based SSD inside the CEC*

Current Setup
8202-E4C 6core.
IBM i Hosting partition with several guest IBM i partition.
Current Base Disk Backplane in the CEC does NOT support Raid
NO Disks in the CEC

Thinking of doing the following.
Upgrading the CEC Disk Backplane to the one that supports Raid
Install 4 SSDs on the new backplane ( ie in the front of the CEC )
Assigning Disk Controllers Directly to one of the Guest parititions
So it will see them as SSDs not just some other Virtual Disk.

Larry, Pete or anyone else see any issues with this setup?
Really don't want to spend upwards of $10K for a pair of 5805's and an
EXP24s
for just 4 SSDs
