I have the b110i RAID enabled and linux works just fine. I have Server 2008R2 using the b110i driver and working well.
I'm wondering if the 8006-LP2 will be faster since it is hardware based, but has a PCI bus.
I have a HP ML360G0 which includes the b110i "raid" controller. Should I use this or my 3ware 8006-LP2? The 8006 is regular PCI, which makes me wonder about the throughput differences. This server is just light browsing and a home storage server.
