Just what I need to make a 3D rendering/photo/video editing computer. Raid 20 1TB HDD together and get some sweet speeds and lots of storage for raw audio/video files. I think I'll get a refurbished one when they show up on Newegg or whatever site that carries them.

Before this job i've been out of a job for 5 months but last month my payment with bonus was little over $18000 just for working on the laptop for about 5 hours a day. Here's the site to read more how you can do it too> www.wow72.com[/citation]

GI. TO. HELL. we will all thank you you pathetic loser

[citation][nom]thecolorblue[/nom]web-based interface is a privacy issue... and thus a non-buy for me[/citation]
Huh ?. Your server/workstation needs to be protected by firewall/NAT router etc and the web-based interface is supposed to be for a local LAN monitoring. Not meant for direct internet. Usually, people will use a specific machine to send monitoring message across the internet. And you do not have to enable this feature either!.

Would like to see a PCie X4 version with 6 or 8 sata3 ports for a good Raid array under Linux.

a 3ware 9750 is a good controller for that, and they're fairly inexpensive for an enterprise raid controller.
My experiences with Highpoint have been really bad.

Yeah what chassis can support 40 HDDs? Seems like this would be better if it had fewer internal ports and some external ones on the back that could be hooked up to an expander.

[citation][nom]mavroxur[/nom]Too bad the article doesn't give useful information, such as RAID levels supported, on-board cache size, etc.[/citation]

From the look of the chips on that board, and from the name being "Rocket" instead of "RocketRaid" it's probably just an HBA, meaning raid 1, 0, and 10, if any raid capabilities, with no cache. This is just a SATA controller, not a RAID controller. The fine print is where they get you.

I know the constant spam is annoying, but for the mods, please don't quote the message. It means they have to edit your message to remove the spam.

PCI-e II x8 is good for 4gb/sec. Given 40 drives, that works out to 100mb/sec per drive. That is pretty lame as even a modern 5400 rpm drive can do well over 150mb/sec sustained. If you have SSD's then can saturate a SATA III interface at 600mb/sec, which means 7 SSDs would saturate this device.

I am not sure what use this is given its crazy low bandwidth.

No raid capability since it is a "Rocket" and not "RocketRaid", but would make for a nice HBA for ZFS... if there is FreeBSD/NAS/etc support for it (I've had horrible luck with trying to get a RocketRaid card to work under FreeNAS).

I think many users worry about JBOD could not have protection, but it also allow users attaches 40 HDD directly and owns 40 Volume, or you can split the MBR/GPT for more volumes, that is still safe for user's data, right?
