RAID Support and Configuration Options
The HPE 505768-B21 ProLiant DL320 Gen6 server is equipped with integrated Smart Array P410i RAID controller, providing hardware-based RAID support for up to 8 SFF hard drives. The RAID controller supports various RAID levels, including RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10, and RAID 5.
RAID 0 combines multiple hard drives into a single logical volume, providing increased performance and storage capacity. However, RAID 0 does not provide any data redundancy, which means that a single drive failure can result in complete data loss.
RAID 1 mirrors the data across two hard drives, providing data redundancy and increased read performance. However, RAID 1 reduces the storage capacity to half of the total hard drive capacity.
RAID 10 combines the benefits of RAID 0 and RAID 1, striping data across mirrored pairs of hard drives, providing both performance and redundancy. RAID 10 requires a minimum of four hard drives and provides high read and write performance with a fault tolerance of up to two drive failures.
RAID 5 distributes data across multiple hard drives, providing data redundancy and increased performance. However, RAID 5 requires a minimum of three hard drives and has a write performance penalty due to the parity calculation overhead.
The HPE 505768-B21 ProLiant DL320 Gen6 server also supports online RAID level migration, which allows the user to change the RAID level of a logical volume without losing data. The server also supports hot-plug hard drives, which means that a failed hard drive can be replaced without shutting down the server.
The RAID configuration options for the HPE 505768-B21 ProLiant DL320 Gen6 server can be accessed through the Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) management interface. The iLO management interface provides a user-friendly web-based interface that allows the user to configure the RAID controller, monitor hard drive health, and perform remote management tasks.

About Refurbished Products
Every business requires a reliable server to store important documents, programs, operating systems, and other peripherals used in an office network. Server software is crucial to IT administrators. This software provides them with an opportunity to manage user access through proper authentication.
For this reason, it is always important to opt for the best in terms of capability and performance. Over the years, servers have evolved from the use of a single model to handle a specific IT office task. That is, administrators needed to purchase a different computer server for database accessing, another one for managing to send and receiving of messages, a different one for a web domain, and so on.
Server management practices have experienced significant changes in recent years. Large and medium companies can now consolidate their infrastructure and operations onto a single or a few servers. This way, the administration can cut costs on hardware purchases.
Here, users will find several modern computer servers that can handle a wide range of tasks. Individuals or organizations will find options that will meet their unique requirements. These servers come with high memory capacity with several numbers of processing unit cores.
With these features, users can easily divide the computing power of their server into many virtual machines. This allows the servers to handle heavy workloads without the fear of breaking down.
