Will a PERC 6/i controller support 2 TB SATA drives? I'm looking to create a 8 x 2 TB RAID 5 array.

More about : perc 2tb sata drives

Hi, I am planning on the same. Is this possible and what are the best SATA 2TB drives to use?

Regards, Chris.

Yes it works, I did it with 6 2 TB drives on a perc 6i in a Dell T410. Keep in mind if you are using VMware direct/local dsk you have to divide the raid 5 volume into 2TB vdisk as that is the max vm will use as a datastore.

Thanks Tom_35 . Saves having to spend money without knowing the outcome. Any advice on SATA drives to use? I am looking to maximise storage space and keep costs down (SATA) but not at the expense of performance.
