Adaptec Raid Controller
very long time ago (17 years) I used 3Ware Hardware Raid Controller where
most are working up to now and they are not broken yet.
However, for all newer installations I use Adaptec and especially the
71506E which is a low-cost hardware Raid-0/1/10 Controller. I have 8 of
them and now one is broken... Grmpf!
I contacted the new owneer of Adaptec and ...
... was pissed off!
They simply claim, that this controller does not exist, even if I have
invoices and you find references on the Internet. After I had a long
conversation with the support, they removed the references from the
WTF is this now?
They sugested me another 16ch Controller, which just cost 1800? insted of
480?. I do not need/want Raid 5/50/6/60 or other crap! I need only
Hot-Fix and Copy-Back functionality.
Does someone has a similar experience with it?
Which Low-Cost Controller can I use now?
Note: It MUST be a Hardware-Raid-1 Controller with Battery Backup and
16 channels, because the Server-Mainboard has only one Slot.
Thanks in advance
