Need two port SATA RAID controller

Recommended Posts

I need a two port SATA RAID controller for a pair of SSDs with only one requirement: mirror two OS & applications containing SSDs or HDDs and not crash the OS when one fails. Reliability and price are the main considerations. Hot-swapping is not a requirement (overkill), neither is speed an issue because system is already more than adequate to the task.

Thanks.

Not sure I get the HDD reference. Are you wanting to just mirror two SSDs that hold your applications and OS? If so, you can do that without needing to buy a card in Windows.

One option is a Lenovo M1015 card from eBay which runs somewhere between $85-100 depending on the seller. You'll also need a SAS to SATA breakout cable for about $15. This card will run a hardware RAID-1 or RAID-10 just fine and is easy to configure. It's basically a rebranded LSI 9211 card.
