RE: hardware raid
If you are looking for Ultra 160 SCSI, the Mylex AcceleRAID 170 may be
something that you want. I recent purchased about 30 of these cards for a
RAID 1 solution for some rack servers. They work pretty good. RAID0,
RAID1, Spanning (JBOD), RAID5. You can backup and restore the controller
configuration to a floppy disk, the BIOS interface is fairly nice and
simple. Rebuilding takes awhile, but no big deal.
They also make an AcceleRAID 170LP, a low-profile PCI card. Pretty neat.
AMI recently sold all of their RAID card business to LSI Logic, this making
getting some of the AMI cards a bit difficult right now. Otherwise, I would
also recommend the AMI Express 500.
If you are looking for IDE, I have no comment there.
