Old SCSI RAID drives VS new ATA-133 drive
Posted on 2006-04-27
Now that I understand what RAID does, I've been looking through my old discarded hardware in which I found a RAID SCSI controller.
I previously didn't understand it's functionallity, so I through it in my parts box.
The controller is a Adaptec AAA-132/133, and I have three SCSI drives (ST39173W 9.1Gbytes 7,200-RPM internal transfer rate of up to 22.5 Mbyte per second).
Would it be faster using these three old SCSI drives in RAID 0 than using a newer ATA-133 7,200-RPM drive?
I previously tried looking for a driver to get this working on windows XP or Windows 2003, but had no luck finding it.
Does anyone have a method or drivers to get this to work with XP or 2k3?
I'm also looking to see if I can get it to work with Linux (Fedora).
