I am setting up a Windows 2008 64bit server for our small company and need to choose a suitable RAID Controller. We have purchased a Dell T300 PowerEdge server tower and would like to run RAID 1 with two 1 TB SATA hard drives. The drives will not be hot-swappable.
As we are settling on RAID 1 with two SATA drives I do not want to pay more for features we will not use. I want it to be compatible, reliable, and have reasonably high rates of transfer speeds. Any help greatly appreciated!
