Hi to all,
We have a Fujitsu Siemens Econel 200 Server. 2x Intel Xeon 2.8, 2x
SATA HDD. Suse 9.1 64 Prof is installed.
At the moment we are using a software raid, but we want to buy 2
more HDD's and implement a 0+1 or 1+0 RAID.
I looked over and over about raid controllers, have found from 120
EURO's to 1000 EURO's but there seems to be a little problematic
the Suse 64 driver.
A very convenient driver would be the
Promise FastTrack S150 TX4 or
but I still don't know if the drivers are quite functional.
The tx4 seems faster as the sx4 but has no 64 driver.
We had in the past some problems with hardware raid controller on suse.
Does anyone uses some good raid controllers and could give me some
I have been using 3ware sata raid on two different machines here at
work with amd 64 cpu's in them with no problem. suse has the 3ware
driver built in for years now. been using 3ware raid cards for years
also with no problems. now I am not sure what they cost in
EURO's since im in the US.
