I have no knowledge of how eSATA works, so detail references are greatly appreciated as well as idiot proof explanations and examples.
We are about to buy 6 server Dell R210, they come with an eSATA connection and we will like to know how connect each server to our storage server (4u custom build solution).
Our storage server has no eSATA connections but has plenty of free PCI slots, so what cards should we buy (please provide different vendors solutions)?
What cables we will need?
After eSATA is connected how will it works? Will the R210 Windows detect the eSATA connection as a new drive? What will be it size and how is it configured?
Thanks for your time and please bear with me since I am new to this subject.
