1) If planning to mix SSD/HDD on a P8 S824 R&D LPAR, and using both the CEC and a EXP24S, with EJ0L PCIe3 12GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter, are there any pros/cons for placement of the drives, CEC or EXP24S?
2) Is 571 gb 15K the largest 15 drive HDD drive available?
Currently on a P7 8205, using 571 10K, and seeing a large performance hit using 5913 PCIe2 1.8GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter Tri-port 6Gb.
I'm shying away from using the 10k drives. I know there are larger 1.1 tb 10k drives available.
Or, if my most used data resides on SDD, perhaps the 10k HDD would be acceptable?
