I am looking for a hardware raid card that supports up to 4 SATA II hard disks with hot swap (compatible raid cage)
I have short listed two LSI/3Ware cards:
Both appear to be well supported in Linux.
I would appreciate your personal experience with the CLI tools provided by LSI. Can they be configured to send email for disk failures or SMART errors? Is there a Web interface for monitoring?
Any preference between 1 and 2 above. Thanks for your time and suggestions.
