*I can't put the PCIe card based SSD inside the CEC*Why not? All slots consumed? But as Larry points out these
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
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
