Well, for non Solaris/non file servers, hardware raid is easiest. I am
hesitant to go with Areca (looks like cheap tw stuff). I have always used
LSI stuff but found them slow as hell, I am pretty sure the hp sa's are LSI

Wonder what's in store for 3ware now that LSI owns them...

Someone in the vSphere forums did a comparison between an LSI and Adaptec and
showed good numbers for an Adaptec SAS controller. I had horrible luck years
ago with Adaptec SATA and never went back.

Oh well...
Might try Adaptec or 3Ware next...
