SAS and SATA RAID compatibility

Recommended Posts

I have read that SAS RAID card can work with SATA drives (not the other way around). I just want to know if anybody have tried to plug SATA drives on a SAS RAID card (e.g. Dell XM768) ?

If they do work, is there any limitation (e.g. can we combine SAS and SATA drives in array) ? or any recommendation a good card for 8 SATA/SAS drives ?

Thanks,

Any modern RAID card won't care if a drive is SATA or SAS. Just make sure if its SATA it is approved for use in a RAID environment.

And don't combine SAS and SATA drives ;)

As to a recommendation, what are you trying to do and what's the budget?
