About the external RAID controller

When at least one storage shelf is purchased with an appliance, a factory-installed PCIe RAID card is installed in the following slots:

  • Slot 5 - NetBackup 5220 Appliance

  • Slot 1 - NetBackup 5230/5240 Appliances

The RAID card contains two SAS ports which connect to the storage shelf with SAS cables. If the optional external storage shelves are not included in the order at the time of the appliance purchase, the PCIe RAID card is not included.


The NetBackup 5330 Appliance compute node does not contain an external RAID controller. NetBackup 5330 Appliance storage shelf RAID functions are controlled by the NetBackup 5330 Appliance's attached Primary Storage Shelf.
