What has happened to Adaptec? Need good raid controller
Posted on 2013-05-21
Wow. I have been using Adaptec Raid controllers since Netware 2.X but I think it is time for a reality check. I have moved to their 6405 and have had absolute fits getting them to work with the Intel S1200BTL serverboard.
I am going to have to throw half the blame on Intel. Their second generation S1200BTLR is a train wreck but the bottom line is that if I look at the motherboard compatibility list for the Adaptec 6405 controller it is almost non-existant. A few ASUS and some older Intel. Not much there. I thinnk PMC might be the death of Adaptec.
Anyway... what else is out there that is comparable to the 6405? I have never been a fan of LSI and am even less so now that Cisco bought them out but what other choices are there?
