In theory, even if your HW RAID was enabled and therefore the OS only saw 1 physical disk, you should still be able to put ZFS on that, though it would be a bad idea. It's always better to disable the hardware RAID when using ZFS. You should ...

It sounds like you want a RAID10 with two mirrors on your three disks. Perfectly normal setup with Linux software RAID. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_MD_RAID_10#Linux_MD_RAID_10 It does exactly what you described. You decide how many copies (mirrors) of each data block you want, and it will stripe the data to fill all the disks. For example, if I ...

I would recommend using an LSI HBA card (9211-8i is a good base card) with SAS expanders (SuperMicro cases can be ordered with integral SAS expanders that are based on LSI chipsets). The LSI firmware ...
