Dell Perc H700 (r710) SSD Support

Hello,

Does anyone know what consumer SSD's will successfully work with the H700 controller?

We have our eye on the new Samsung 840 Evo 500gb's but have heard that that the H700 controller can spit the dummy at any given moment..

We were wondering if anyone knows of a SSD that the H700 will tolerate, or alternately any moderately priced enterprise SSD's that the H700 is friends with.

The SSD's will be used for xernserver virtualised environments consisting of web servers, MySQL and hadoop applications.

Thanks

Only Dell drives are "supported" but there are a number of people who have tried them, with mixed results.  Several people have experienced issues with the Samsung's on current PERC's.  The Intel 500's seem a bit more reliable.  Search the Dell forums for additional info.

In nearly ALL cases, third-party SSD's will NOT properly communicate their status to the controller, flashing the drive amber as if they were offline, even when otherwise functioning properly.
