SAS and SATA mix on same controller

Last Modified: 2017-01-14

I am planning to get 2 x SAS 256GB (RAID1) and 2 x SATA HDD 1TB (RAID1).

SAS disks will be used for OS including hyper-v VM OS. 1TB SATA disk will be used for storing data on within the OS.

Is it okay to mix both and still be able to use under same OS?
