I’m a noobie when it comes to enterprise gears and would like to know what kind of disk shelves I can get that supports sata SSD. I was thinking of using Samsung 860 Pro drives. About 10 of them in raid 10. I currently have 2 x Dell R720s. Planning to add more server for redundancy. I’m kind of lost when it comes to picking out a controller that connects to a disk shelves. The purpose is to host a storage server and run xen server that will run virtual machines on the raid array. I heard hard drives are a bit slower when it comes to this, that is the reason for the SSDs. Hope someone can help me figure this out. Thank you in advance!
Also, please let me know if this topic is in the wrong category and which one it should go into.
