    DELL R430 & R530 HBA suggestion required for ALL FLASH VSAN 6.7.0 U2

      Hi All,

       

      DELL R430 & R530 HBA suggestion required for ALL FLASH VSAN 6.7.0 U2

       

      Here is our hardware specifications.

       

       

      Currently I'm validating these 2 hardware's for new VSAN 6.7 U2 setup.I see,the IO controller "PERC H330 Mini (Embedded)" is not compatible for VSAN 6.7.0. Please refer this link for more information. https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2149392

       

      Another IO controller "PERC H730 Mini (Embedded)"  is compatible for VSAN 6.7.0 U2 as per VSAN IO controller list.

       

       

      As per my search,HBA330 is generally a very better choice. Even though the another IO controller "PERC H730 Mini" supports VSAN 6.7 Update 2,we like to replace these controller also with HBA 330.Both R430 and R530 controller will be replaced with HBA 330.

       

      Does this HBA 330 performance will be much faster when using All Flash VSAN ? or any other HBA can be preferred (LSI 9300-8i or 9305-16i )?

       

      Please advise if anything is there.

       

      Thank you,
