Eight-port 12Gbps PCI Express (PCIe) RAID controller supporting 3Gbps, 6Gbps and 12Gbps SAS or SATA hard-disk or solid-state drives.
Standard support for the most popular RAID levels, including RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 50, RAID 60 and NV Cache, further strengthen the data-protection capabilities of the PERC H730. Dell’s NV Cache technology backs up the data to non-volatile memory in a power-loss event, and can store it safely for a nearly unlimited period of time. The H730 also supports non-RAID mode (pass-through) for applications managing storage independently.
Intuitive RAID management
Managing the PERC H730 is easy using the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller. Without having to deploy an agent, IT admins can configure, deploy, update and monitor the PERC H730, via the GUI or through Dell’s CLI (known as RACADM). Additionally, Dell’s one-to-many OpenManage Essentials console allows the user to perform storage operations across multiple servers, including the RAID controllers as well as the physical disks in the PowerEdge system and external enclosures.
• iDRAC automatically creates and executes jobs
for each storage configuration operation
• Customer can reboot the host OS automatically
or schedule reboot for a later date.
• PERC H730 supports real-time RAID monitoring
and hardware inventory. iDRAC incorporates Dell OpenManage™ Storage Services (OMSS) which provides the tools to efficiently manage PERC products, including a pre-boot setup utility and a full spectrum of online RAID management utilities. This suite of applications allows administrators to adjust SAS or SATA topology views from the system host down to the logical and physical drive level. Extending to enterprise deployments, these tools can scale to easily configure, monitor and manage RAID and JBOD volumes locally or over the LAN network.
