Re: [K12OSN] server capable ?

I'm using IDE RAID5 with 4 40Gig Hd's, and the performance with a test bed of 30 machines is perfectly acceptable, no drive thrashing, lots of read/writes with open office going, but the lovely lights on the Adaptec ATA-2400A just keep on flashing left to right like there on the front of the wonderful car we all love and know as Kit. I digress, I dont see an issue at present with the IDE raid setup, provided you get the right Controller card, and put the right ammount of ram on the card itself, all is good, Frequently read data is held in the Raid Cards own Ram to give the performance a serious boost, and I can assure you that it does work. Also, its a hell of a lot cheaper.

Theres my bit

Thanks to all who replied their thoughts on IDE RAID vs SCSI. The clear way to go is SCSI...I knew this but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on lightning in a bottle...
