Can I configure 2x DC P3608 in RAID1 on intel C612 chipset?

project involves adding a virtual db server into existing host. currently there are only SATA drives attached and we need higher performance, thus the p3608 drives. redundancy is also needs and therefore the RAID1. I know the host server is running on a C612 chipset based supermicro server. OS is server 2012 enterprise.

Kys,

 

 

In this particular case,it is important to first do a RAID 0 with each of the drives and then, you can create a RAID 1 with both RAID 0 and in the end, it will be a RAID 10. Also it is important to confirm if the motherboard supports RAID configuration with NVMe* drives. He is the link to the motherboard forum: /community/tech/desktop/content Desktop Boards

Word back from Supermicro is that the mainboard will only support a software RAID10 setup. server is on order now, and hopefully will have hands on to try it out in a month or so.

for reference purposes the Supermicro motherboard is a X10DRU-i+

I'm not 100% sure since I haven't had the opportunity to try the NVMe RAID stuff yet, but some of the documents released with the RSTe for NVMe should help you out:
