Which Sun SPARC Servers come with preinstalled RAID controllers?
So far I've found that the SPARC and Netra T Series Servers come with an integrated RAID/disk controller with RAID 0 and 1, but I haven't found anything for the SuperCluster, the Enterprise M-series, or the x86 servers.
Any feedback is much appreciated.
x86 Server- depend from ordered configuration. You can order RAID controller or not.
Enterprise M-series. Don not support RAID controller for boot-device.
SuperCluster based on servers T4-4, that have internal RAID controller, but not shure that used.
Current trend - use ZFS for boot-device. In this case Oracle recommend use ZFS-mirror pool instead internal RAID controller.
Thank you for your response. I did some more digging and found some information on the M-Series Servers, and apparently they do come with a RAID (SAS) controller.
"The Sun SPARC Enterprise M-Series also include an on-board SAS controller that supports RAID 1 with the use of Oracle Solaris."
Here is the link:
Open provided link.
*The M3000 server's on-board SAS controller supports RAID 1 (mirroring) volumes using the Oracle
Solaris OS raidctl utility.*
So corrected info:
M3000 - Have RAID.
M4000; M5000 - No RAID.
M8000; M9000 - It depend from installed type of IOUA card.
