if i had the choice, i'd go for the HW RAID. SW RAID is certainly possible,
and it's cheap. but when you look at the administrative overhead, it's just
not worth it. i guess that they offered you a T3. this is a decent piece of
HW, and it's supported by linux. and you can always run LVM on top of the
HW RAID for partitioning.

so i'd go with a E220R and an external T3.

that's true. apt-get for solaris would be _great_. anyone up to create
Debian GNU/Solaris? some binary only packages for the base and assorted
tools, the rest freeware tools. and all bound together by apt-get. ISAGN.
