Re: OT: scsi vs ide: some data - "features" and ide-to-scsi
hi ya paul, brian
i like the following "feature list"
- disk reliability -- stays up and running
- functionality -- does what its supposed to do
- costs -- can be replicated if needed (disk crash) within an hour or day
-- not a major budget issue
- expandability -- into other "file servers"
- speed -- ??? doesnt matter... no disk can sustain 100MB/sec
or anything near its rated capacity
anybody seen (using) these IDE to scsi-3 convertors ???
