10 x 2.5'' AnyBay backplane

Use this section to understand the AnyBay backplane cable routing for server model with ten 2.5'' front drives.

To connect power cables for a backplane for standard 2.5'' drives, refer to Backplane power cable routing.

To connect cables for M.2 drive backplane, refer to M.2 drive backplane.

To connect intrusion switch cable, refer to Intrusion switch.

To connect cables for RAID flash power modules, refer to RAID flash power modules

To connect signal cables for a backplane for standard 10 x 2.5'' front drives, refer to the following cable routing scenarios depending on your server configuration:

Cable routing with an SFF HBA/RAID adapter

The following tables show the mapping relationship between backplane connectors and an SFF HBA/RAID adapter (Gen 3 or Gen 4).
