I have a customer that is needing to Upgrade there IBM x3550 Server with new Hard Drives.
Currently they have 74GB SAS Drives and are wanting a little bit more space, not a lot more as its only a terminal Server adn no Data lives on it, but will go higher the 74Gb of coarse in this current day specs
We are also going to install VMware ESXi on it and run the server virtualized to fit with the rest of there infrastructure.
I am looking a little biut out side the box here and thinking of maybe installing SSD drives to get more proformance rather then the supported SAS drives
As i know this is an older server and SSD will not really be supported by IBM i am wondering if anyone can advise me if they have done and succeeded with this sort of set-up.
I would think to still put 2 x SSD in Raid 1 for them
Can anyone also advise best SSD to use i am presuming some Intel Branded one but will be interested to here from you.
