Thread: Using NAS Enterprise with a 'normal' controller?

  1. #1

    Default Using NAS Enterprise with a 'normal' controller?


    I want to install a NAS Enterprise on a So370 mainboard with 6 onboard IDE-ports. These are connected by a "normal" controller, not by a raid controller.

    My question:
    Do I really need a raid controller for NAS Enterprise?
    Isn't there a possibility to use normal disks? I don't need the features of a raid system.

    Thanks a lot.

    Yes you can use the IDE ports, then use our Software RAID tool to create a RAID set to be available for a Volume Group. You don't have to use a RAID controller if you are not looking for speed and expanding your RAID set.
    All the best,
