Re: Which SATA RAID controller?

I've an ICP Vortex GDT6528RS in my desktop, lovely little beasty! Not the fastest speed demon, but reliable....Works in Linux, FreeBSD, Win2K, WinXP, DOS, you name it. And not just 'oh we made it work but the drivers suck' they're all solid!

What would be the disadvantage of a ICH5-R based RAID (ships with many
mainboards) over a Promise pseudo-hardware-RAID?

Does anybody know wether you can hot-swap with a ICH5-R/Promise-System
or even Linux-Software-RAID, or not?

AFAIK that's only possible with real hardware raid. You can do hot
swap with 3ware controllers. Maybe it works with vortex controllers
too. 3ware offers hot swap cases for ide, too.

no I am not working for 3ware ;-)

I had excellent experiences with ICP Vortex SCSI raid controllers
that were produced before they were sucked by Intel. Maybe the new
(?) ide raid controllers from them are also very good...
