It's 2012 and seemingly there's still no auth options. I'd not call that unfortunate I'd call it an epic fail :)

comment Dell R510 backplane/LSI RAID card
Thanks. I have the server and RAID card now so kinda academic. Looks like will all fit. I gather the H700 is single core? The H800 is, from what I can tell by Googling, the same as the LSI 9265-8i but doesn't support SATA. The server we bought has an H200 fitted with the same cables as the 9265 so I'll either remove that and replace with the LSI or just unplug it and use the cables. Will post an answer when I know for sure how/if it all fits together.

comment Crucial C300 256GB SSDs in Dell M605 (or similar) Blade with Perc H700
Really helful answer, thank you Kyle. Am I right in thinking that the wear rates simply mean that the consumer level drives will refuse to write any more data earlier than the enterprise level drives will? Or is there something more sinister/serious to bear in mind when considering using the cheaper disks in a server?

comment Using X25-E SSD on Dell R710 w/PERC H700
It does make sense from that perspective. However, Dell storage tends to be rather overpriced, and a lot of folks are well used to building and tinkering with their own machines. I think the option of buying storage seperately makes sense too. Each to their own and all that.

Thank you. I've got an account manager now and they confirmed pretty much the same (albeit reluctantly as obviously they prefer to sell their own cards). I think in retrospect should have ordered the Perc H700 or H800 but didn't know at the time (and still don't) which card is equivalent to the 9265. I gather the H700 would suffice. Live and learn!
