non-HP drives with HP B120i controller
Posted on 2013-06-07
I have HP Proliant ML310e G8 server with B120i controller (no FBWC).
HP 2TB 6G SATA 7.2k 3.5in NHP MDL HDD costs $550
Western Digital RE4 2000GB 64MB cache costs $200
I'm going to buy 2x2TB WD RE4 drives and build mirror. I love HP's iLO and array configuration utility due to failure prevent notifications.
Do you prefer Windows server 2008 mirror, or B120i mirror? And why..
