Re: Cheapest "software" RAID card

You can still use cheap "RAID" cards as disk controllers and implement
the RAID functions via the Linux md drivers.
I would agree with what Christoph says, and would also point out that
the Linux md drives use Linux native filesystems. In other words, if you
have a server with a RAID-1 (mirror) pair of disks, you can take one
disk out of that server, put it in another and boot it (assuming the MBR
is set up, but at the very least you car read it). You can't do that
with cheap RAID cards.
