comment Consumer (or prosumer) SSD's vs. fast HDD in a server environment
FWIW, I spoke with a Dell rep. While they don't have an official list of SSDs that are compatible w/ the H730, he did say that OpenManage will not complain about any of the drives the Dell sells on their website. I just bought a handful of Samsung 845DC Evo's. Will report back w/ their compatibility.

@Gugges Yikes. Though in the end, the article mentions that it was a bug in the Linux kernel, not the SSD's

@s1lv3r good point. Several sources mention that while Dell allows 3rd party drives, they're not certified and OpenManage will still give warnings. Though I can't seem to find a list of certified SSD's supported by Dell or the H730 :/

I've casually heard this before... not to use RAID5 anymore. Mainly because of reliability? And what do you use in it's place RAID6? RAID10?

@ewwhite Dell rack servers. Likely an R430 or R730 with a PERC H730 RAID controller. Also likely a HyperV server hosting mostly Windows Server Standard... might use VMware over HyperV. Still considering. Initially VMs will be: domain controller, DNS, WSUS, deployment services. May add internal web server as well.
