Hardware SATA Raid Controller
I'm assembling an internal server for my company, and we need both a lot of
diskspace (for shared files, software backups, devel repository, etc) and
some security on disk failures.
I thought that a Raid5 with several smaller disks would solve our problem,
but that brings me other. I would need a raid controller, that do it by
hardware, not that sh*t that (at least some) Promise/FastTrack controllers do
(or what I managed to make them do - raid by software), and that at the same
work with debian as "out of the box" as possible.
One solution would be to buy a HP server, with a raid controller, but that
solution is a bit over my budget, so I the solution goes by buying the
RaidController and assembly the server.
My question is: What Raid HARDWARE controllers did you managed to configure
in Debian without (too) much work? Which ones for RAID5 and SATA?
Thank you very much for your help,
