ESXi is great product, however little bit picky about hardware. Can you please reccommend me some hardware raid controllers which work 100% out of the box and are also price-efficient ?
I know about this page http://www.vm-help.com/esx40i/esx40_whitebox_HCL.php - however most of the hardware in the list is pretty expensive. So I would be glad for tips on cheap and proven raid controller cards.
Not to forget - I am looking for running RAID 1.
