RD220 - RAID support variations by model



This is my 1st RD220 Part # 379813U and I have two questions.


1) Does this server require a separate controller to provide raid 5 ? or does it support raid 5 out of the box?


 2) I also ordered qty 4 part # 67Y0121 500GB hard drives. Do they come with the HS rails or do I need to order them also?


Depending on the RD220 model, RAID 5 is supported with the included controller.   The 3798-16U model supports RAID 0, 1, and 1E where the 13U, 1FU, and 1LU models support RAID 0, 1, 1E, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60.

Rails are included with the drives themselves.
