ide hotswap raid fileservers
Is there anyone on this list with experience in setting up large fileservers?
A customer asked me to set up a nfs fileserver for his webcluster, due to
the cost a raid ide configuration was chosen but we're wondering if what
are the technical boundaries to such setup.
I came accros a nice 19" rack with space for 16" hot spare ide brackets,
the server would contain an asus serverboard and 14 x 120gb disks.....2
disks will contain the os in mirroring and those 14 hd's will be in raid 01
and connected to two 3ware escalade 7000 series ide raidcontrollers..
The mobo has 2 64bits pci slots which are supported by the 3ware cards,
the ide hotspare removables have to support udma 100 ..but for now my main
question is....is this going to work..the setup of an ide raid config with
almost a terabyte in storage in raidconfig..
anyone anyidea if there are complete solutions for sale on the market based
on such configuration? Or are there ppl actuall running this kind of
hardware under debian?
any help appreciated!
