Raid controller choice

Recommended Posts

I need a new RAID controller for 3x18G barracuda's. It will be in the 2100S price range.

Mylex Acceleraid 170 is another I am looking at, in the same price range. Any others I should consider? I have heard some bad stuff about performance/throughput on the 2100S lately.

The RAID will run on a Win2K server. Appreciate any advice.

I tried the Mylex - I asked the same sort of question as you did a few days ago - and it wasn't much cop. Certainly a lot slower than XP software RAID. Trouble is, I wanted a bootable array. If you don't need boot and you have the spare horsepower in the server, I'd try dynamic disk raid - it's free to try!

I'll watch your post to see if anyone can come up with an answer. I hear ICP Vortes are fast, but they are not cheap and I don't know if their cheaper stuff is quick or not.
