    How does Direct Attached Storage (DAS) work in my gaming laptop?

    I am using a gaming laptop from Lenovo. I am about to order a server, including a DAS with 12 HDDs. However, since I haven’t used such a device before, I am not sure if I understand its functionality correctly.
    If I connect such a device to my server:
    • Is it possible to use each HDD individually in the /dev/sdX format?
    • Is it possible to build a HW-Raid on the server that contains HDDs in the server and HDDs in the DAS?
    If anyone is using it, please let me know so that it could be helpful for me.
    Thank you for your time.

      What’s the relevance of having a gaming laptop if you connect that device to the server?
      What OS runs on the server?

      Direct Attached Storage (DAS) is a technology that allows for direct connection of storage devices to your gaming laptop. This type of storage device can be used in place of traditional hard drives or solid-state drives, and it offers faster performance than either option. DAS uses an internal bus system to connect the storage device directly to the motherboard, allowing data transfers at much higher speeds than with other types of connections. Additionally, DAS provides more reliable access times since there are no external components involved in its operation. With this technology, gamers can enjoy improved loading times when playing their favorite games on their laptops.

      Direct-attached storage (DAS) is a type of storage that is attached directly to a computer without going through a network. The storage might be connected internally or externally. Only the host computer can access the data directly. Other devices must go through the host computer to work with the data.

      Yes, when you connect a DAS (Direct Attached Storage) device to your server, each HDD in the DAS can be recognized and used individually in the /dev/sdX format. You can access and manage them as separate storage devices within your server’s operating system.

      Additionally, it is possible to build a hardware RAID configuration that includes HDDs both within the server and in the DAS. This allows you to create a RAID array spanning multiple disks across both the server and the DAS, providing increased storage capacity and data redundancy.
