SCSI RAID Question - How many channels?
Posted on 2004-04-20
I've been googling for this all afternoon, but to no avail, so I thought I'd turn to you good folk for the answer (hopefully).
Basically, I want to know....
How many channels are required to do SCSI RAID mirroring of two SCSI drives?
On the market there are cards with up to four channels on them (possibly more), but there are also RAID cards with a single channel on them.
I understand that IDE and SCSI are different, and that for IDE RAID you need at least two channels, and I also understand that SCSI runs parallel information, and hence can have multiple devices attached to a single channel, but i need a concrete answer before I spend our hard earned budget on a SCSI RAID card
Thank you in advance
