NOTE: The components of a storage subsystem (e.g. the drive, the HBA/controller, and the server backplane) should operate at the same data transfer rate or the system bandwidth will be negotiated down to an acceptable level for all components.
NOTE: Transfer rates of drives are dependent on the maximum transfer rate supported by the HBA or Controller. Refer to the HBA or Controller technical specifications for details.
NOTE: Mixing SAS and SATA hard drives is allowed. However, only SAS hard drives will be used for RAID setting.
