OK, this isn't really about how to do something or how it could be done better. I have a question about if you are upgrading your server and adding two large SSD drives in a RAID1 or two large M.2 NVMe drives in a RAID and you need help moving the VMs and data, etc. Let's say they can do it easily.

If I take it to their place, and they say, "We recommend these two SSD drives, there would be a markup since they would sell it retail. Am I better off upgrading those first? Or can I just buy those myself and install the RAID arrays before they actually do the work?
