LSI LSI00350 (8100-4i) PCI-Express 3.0 x8 Low Profile Ready SATA / SAS Controller Card
LSI Nytro MegaRAID LSI00351 (8110-4i) PCI-Express 3.0 x8 Low Profile Ready SATA / SAS Controller Card - Single
Those cards have 100-200GB NAND
So, what if I build an E5-2600 dual CPU server with one of those LSI Raid cards where the controller has 100-200GB NAND? Would the one server, if I use Hyper V and then put SQL server in a VM, Web server in another VM, Exchange in another VM, would that be fast? And, would that be essentially safe from malicious threats, ie, the Web server gets knocked out, but, being virtual, it doesn't take out the whole machine? And, if I am barking up the right tree, wonder where stuff gets stored, cause I dont' think it gets stored on the LSI....I am still figuring out what I want to do, so, mostly just checking with you guys to be sure I am on the right track.
Or, do I just get 4 SSD's and put them in RAID 10 and not go to the expense of the LSI RAID with teh 200GB NAND?
Or, is there merit to going with a card like this?
