SATA RAID Controller that works with 1 TB drives

We are putting together a cheap Linux based disk to disk backup solution (everything is already backed up via LTO4 tapes) and want to use 1 TB drives. Looking at the LSI controllers but I can't seem to find if they will support 1 TB drives. I'm not stuck on the LSI brand, I'll use whatever works. I want to build it with 4x 1 TB drives for a capacity of ~3.4 TB once formatted and whatnot. We have ~2.6 TB of data to sync. It doesn't have to be super fast as its going to sync to an off-site area anyway. We will be using CentOS 5.2 so it will need to be supported there as well. It would be really nice if I can make a single logical drive that is the max size (I did see some controllers had a 2 TB max logical drive limitation).

Any suggestions? Anyone already try this and know something that works?

  1. Any RAID setup should work with any drives of whatever connector type the controller has, unless it specifically states otherwise.
