I want to put some RAID controllers in our Linux servers, for which I have a couple of requirements:
- Good Linux support. Not just the disk driver, but also the management and query tools, to report failure and such.
- Cross-model compatability. When a server dies, I'd like to be able to plug the disks in another server and start it.
I've been told 3Ware is a good option, but 3Ware has been bought by LSI and my experience with LSI is not good when it comes Linux support for the management software.
