Seeking StorageWorks RAID Wizard?

» close window

The Question is:

I need to install a DS20E with 6 internals 36 Gb disk drives. And the O.S.
 version must be 7.1-2.
There is a SCSI raid card for this configuration? Witch one?

The Answer is :

  OpenVMS supports various RAID controllers, as well as host-based RAID.
  For information on hardware platforms and available hardware options
  and the associated support, please see the AlphaServer website, and
  the supported options information and QuickSpecs available there.
  For pointers to the AlphaServer website and the associated platform
  and option QuickSpecs, please see the OpenVMS FAQ.
  OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2 has not been supported for some time.  The
  OpenVMS Wizard would recommend moving to a release with Prior
  Version Support (PVS) or Current Version Support.  For information
  on PVS, please see the pointers in the OpenVMS FAQ.  (The use of
  such an old and unsupported OpenVMS version will be one of the
  biggest single problems you will have to navigate in choosing from
  the available RAID controller options.)
  The KZPAC series would be one of the more obvious choices, and is
  supported on V7.1-2, with then-current ECO kits installed -- there
  are various other StorageArray configurations that are also
  supported, of course.
  For information on StorageWorks products and support, please contact
  your HP Reseller or your HP StorageWorks representative directly.
