We are about to order a dell R610 with a H700. We were thinking of using 2 X Samsung 850 Pro 512Gb drives in RAID 1.
The question is does the Perc H700 support TRIM in hardware RAID 1? The answers I have found from googling around seem to indicate no, but this also seems to be a fast moving field, and there have been firmware updates since then.
Ohh and it seems non-dell certified drives will no longer be blocked
Or, if there is no hardware supported TRIM for RAID 1 on the H700 with the latest firmware, then would it be better to get SSD's which have inbuilt TRIM based on sandforce controllers? Eg the Kingston HyperX which seems to have done reasonably well in the endurance tests
The Samsung 850's have better stats than the HyperX drives, but I am lead to believe would have degraded performance without TRIM commands being issued to them...
Thus does the PERC H700 support TRIM, if not then is there another Hardware RAID controller that does, if not is the best bet using sandforce controlled SSDs?
