Hi Rob,Hello Udo,
I want to purchase a sas/sata card to test instead of our older 3ware/lsi cards.
can you give a suggestion or 2 for areca controller series or models? I see quite a few different ones at the areca homepage..
also is there a decent gui for areca ?
sorry for delay. I have tested an ARC1680 with all disks in path through - the write cache is used.
If I had to buy an new raid-controller I would use the newer line 18xx.
But for ceph you need only an sas-extender and no raid-controller (the price difference is enough to buy an better SSD for caching).
Areca has also an sas-extender-card but unfortunality there are driver-problems with linux ( I tested one card without luck).
