I've been tasked to price up and order a new server. My plans are for a Dell Poweredge R510 with the 8 HDD option, an LSI 9265-8i RAID card, two Dell 600GB 15k 3.5" SAS drives in RAID 1, and six Intel 520 120GB 2.5" SATA III SSDs in three RAID 1 volumes.
I've searched and searched and can't find any useful into on the Dell 8 HDD backplane. What I need to know is, is the backplane wired up to the Dell system board? If it is, can I rewire it to the LSI RAID card? If it isn't, can I insert the above drives and connect them to the LSI card without issue?
