LSI 4 Internal Port RAID Card 9361-4i with SAS Expander for 24 disks o

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

We are about to buy new storage that will have total 24 xSeagate 4TB Enterprise NAS SATA 6Gb/s 128MB Cache 3.5" with 4U on SuperChassis 846BE1C-R1K28B

The supplier propose to use LSI 4 Internal Port RAID Card 9361-4i with SAS Expander , and suggesting to stick with 12GB controller.
My question would be is such configuration is recommended performance wise , what is more suggested for such disk quantity and type and if there is specific controller more recommended?
Thanks

That card is top notch... can't really go wrong there. You have ~4GB/s of bandwidth using SAS3 / 12Gb/s with that single 4-lane connection to the hard drives. Theoretically those drives in a best-case scenario could push 200MB/s each, or ~4.8GB/s total... but that is outer edge and all drives in RAID0.

What exactly is your use case and capacity needs? As Kevin says for large sequential performance in RAID0 you can get quite a bit of performance, but that's a very specific scenario....
