I'm using an Adaptec 7805H
Hmm. That is SFF-8643. 'Not ideal. I would really rather SFF-8088, or at least SFF-8087, for which I have some adapters.
(PCIe) which is supported by standard kernel
(currently I'm running: 3.16.0-4-amd64).
What about the management software?
I don't use any management software special to this adapter. the adapter
treats my disks as JBOD. on top of that I made a software raid (mdadm),
encryption layer (cryptsetup) and then locigal volumes for my data
(pvcreate -> vgcreate -> lvcreate).
