Intel Optane paired with HDD in RAID 1


Is it possible to pair Intel Optane Memory with 2 HDD drives connected in the RAID 1 system? If yes, is it necessary to combine each one HDD with a separate Intel Optane Memory module so I would have to buy 2 Intel Optane modules to combine them with 2 HDDs connected in RAID 1? Is the capacity of an HDD drive important?
