RAID1 with OnBoard M.2 and M.2 on a PCIe Riser???

2020-02-17, 19:16 PM

Hello, can you create a RAID1 with an M.2 on-board memory and an M.2 memory on a PCIe riser card? This with a ThinkStation P330 G2 (30CY0025GE).

Many thanks.

Markus

I'm assuming you mean an M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD, correct?

 

Yes, you can create a RAID 0 or a RAID 1 with an M.2 NVMe drive in the onboard M.2 slot and an M.2 NVMe drive in a PCIe riser card installed in PCIe Slot 3. 

 

For reference, please refer to the whitepaper we put together that shows exactly how to do this.

Is there a similar whitepaper for P920?

There certainly is a similar whitepaper for P920 at the following link:

Might there be a whitepaper for the P910 30B9 machine?

 

Thanks,

@dvaresco - Here is a link for guidance in supporting PCIe based storage on P910.  I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for.

 

https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/nex_gen_pcie_storage_v1.1docx.pdf

 

Note that NVMe RAID is not supported on the P910 platform like it is for P920.  You can implement NVMe RAID on P910, but it would be limited to software based RAID solutions, and the boot drive cannot be part of the RAID array in that scenario.

 

You should be able to browse all of the available whitepapers (and other user guides/documentation) for P910 by this link:

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/workstations/thinkstation-p-series-workstations/thinkstation-p910/documentation/doc_userguide

 

Hopefully that works..if not, go to support.lenovo.com, click "PC", specify your platform, then click "knowledge base and guides" in the left menu, then finally click "user guides" in the top menu and it should take to the right repository.  They can be a bit challenging to find with the new design/layout of the support site.
