Make sure you flash it to the latest firmware. Koutech HBA based on this chip: What about vs. Lots of bandwidth available to each port. For years I’d drooled over the LSI nay! And it does not support drives larger than 2TB. It is possible to create arrays on any disk on any type of controller in the system, or to move disks from one controller to another.

There is also limited information on FreeBSD support.
Are there any other companies to consider? I used to run these: HighPoint HBA based on this chip: Supermicro Freevsd based on this chip: Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.
Adaptec HBA based on the However it is currently not supported by Solaris. What about dreebsd. Make sure you flash it to the latest firmware. He’s an intolerable dick.
Probably a bit dated, and one is more cross-flashing Dells back to LSI. D I’ve used this brand in the past.
Supermicro HBA based on this chip: Watch Seattle Conference on Scalability: I bought a few of them and have had great luck with zero drive disconnects like I did with other on-board eSATA controllers. Once you pull that restraining lever, it is either a good install or a piece of silicon jewelry.
Shawn December 13, FreeNas 0 Comments Absolutely fantastic post on controllers for home storage systems can be found here I need a lot of reliable and cheap storage space media collection, backups. I marevll it out. However, beware, this chip does not support drives larger than 2TB.
Though only 2 channels. It is also fully AHCI compliant, in other words robust, well-designed, and virtually compatible with all operating systems; a notable exception is Solaris for which I recommend instead the next best controller: And it does not support drives larger than 2TB.
Anyway – no troubles out of the the box with the currently nightly build frewbsd Intel HBA based on this chip: Then put marvelp extra disks on a discrete controller, and I recommend specifically these ones: I expect it’ll be flawless since Marvell drivers, in the past years, have gotten very mainstream.
FreeBSD 9 & marvell 88SE controller – hot plug issue – XigmaNAS
However if you need more throughput eg. Most motherboards have up to 4 or 6 onboard ports be sure to always enable AHCI mode in the BIOS as it is the best designed hardware interface that a chip can present to the OS to enable maximum performancebut for more than 4 or 6 disks, there are surprisingly not that many choices of controllers. There’s a lot of cheap stuff out there, which some of my perusal of NAS forums suggests would indeed be suitable, but I am availing myself of the experience here.
It is possible to create arrays on any disk on any type of controller in the system, or to move disks from one controller to another. I’ll toss one of mine into my PC and boot a Obviously cheaper since there is no hardware RAID controller to buy. This is the only 4-port SATA controller supported by Linux providing acceptable throughput to each port. Thu Mar 03, Sat Sep 08, 2:
