6 x 2.5'' SAS/SATA + 4 x 2.5'' AnyBay backplane

Use this section to understand the cable routing of six SAS/SATA front drives and four AnyBay front drives for liquid cooling configuration with 10 x 2.5'' AnyBay front backplane installed.

To connect power cables for a backplane for standard 2.5'' or 3.5'' drives, refer to Backplane power cable routing.

To connector cables of RAID flash power modules, refer to RAID flash power modules.

To connect signal cables, refer to the following cable routing scenario:

Cable routing with an SFF HBA/RAID adapter

The following tables show the mapping relationship between backplane connectors and a 16i SFF HBA/RAID adapter (Gen 3 or Gen 4).
