I'd rather spend my money on disk space and I/O performance.
I want to mirror/RAID 5 my data. (Gotta protect the data)
I want to use SATA disks.
I'd like to find a mobo that does true hardware based mirroring.
A controller that does hardware based mirroring. RAID 5 might be an option too....
It looks like some older boards enable software based mirroring. Latest versions of Linux don't like them. So I want to do hardware based mirroring /RAID 5 so the Operating System is only presented what it thinks is a JBOD.
I'm looking for:
MOBO, CPU, Case, and possibly RAID Controllers. The rest I can figure out from there....
