Re: SATA RAID5 adaptor other than 3ware? Thanks alot!
I use Areca controler (1210, 4 ports pciExpress, SATA2), perfect
solution. you need to patch your kernel with the areca patch ( included
in mm4 patch). The areca tools to monitor the controler runs fine on
I recommand this product, also I have very bad experience with 3ware
sata controller which offer very low performances.

Ok, thanks to all you guys, I have found the new LSI MegaRAID 300-8x
to fit my needs most closely. They are becoming available now and I
have enough time to validate one in another soon-to-arrive GX28. It
has the connectors on the back side, but it's short enough and it
seems to be a decent performer (judging from the Areca card
http://www.tweakers.net/reviews/557 which uses the same XOR hardware
- I don't trust the Areca hardware though (fan) and have very good
experiences with LSI for years now).
Unfortunately the MegaRAID 300-4x doesn't seem to be out yet but the
price difference is a minor issue. Nice feat is support of NCQ btw,
got four NCQ disks on my desk already :-)
Please let us know if the 300-8x does, in fact, provide similar
performance to the Areca. I had been looking at the Areca (because
of, in part, the review you mentioned) but have been a little leary.
I have had very good experience with LSI MegaRAID with SCSI and would
like to try the 300-8x (if performance IS as described).
Also... I checked their drivers page but do not see a Debian and/or
generic Linux driver. Do you know one is available?
