Please, PLEASE, PLEASE don't do this as multiple RAID0 logical drives comprised of a single disk!!! If you wish to do this properly, enable the "HBA mode" of your controller. This disables all RAID functionality of the controller. This feature is meant for the ZFS/StorageSpaces/Hadoop/vSAN solutions out there that require raw disk access. Keep in mind that ...

You cannot. SmartArray controllers don't support passthrough. Some engineers, however, use the following workaround: they create raid0 from each disk and use them. But I think this is too messy and creepy. In the same time I don't think that software striping in ElasticSearch is a considerable option: no software striping can be better than the hardware ...

Don't use non-HP disks in HP Gen8 and Gen9 servers. It never works well, and you'll inevitably run into problems. See: Third-party SSD solutions in ProLiant Gen8 servers and of course: Third-party SSD solutions in ProLiant Gen9 servers HP have a special version of this Samsung disk in that capacity available with carrier and HP firmware. I can help you ...
