which SATA-raid controller...
we are planning to set up a serial-ATA based fileserver (>1 Terabyte).
the host will be dedicated solely to serving files (via samba and nfs
(and probably appletalk), so i was thinking about a software-raid solution.
are there any cards you would recommend ?
i was thinking about highpoint rocketraid-1820a (i think there are only
proprietary drivers available, but it has 8 SATA-channels) or promise
fasttrack s150-sx4 (only 4 SATA-channels)
anything else ? (3ware and adaptec cards are most likely better (? in
terms of what ?) but i guess they have their prize for getting true
hardware-raid which i don't really need).
