Posted on 2007-05-30 18:21:08 by Thomas De Maesschalck

The Adaptec RAID 3805 is an 8-port controller that supports SATA and SAS drives and next-generation PCIe connectivity. It features Adaptec RAID Code (ARC) with RAID levels 0, 1, 1E, 5, 5EE, 6, 10, 50, 60, JBOD and more! Read on to see how this MD2 low-profile RAID card does as we test it with 8 Western Digital Raptor drivers in 11 RAID configurations on Linux!

Quote: "Raid10 performance was a little surprising. having 4 drives in raid10 is slightly faster than just 2 in raid0. This is likely just some experimental error. The Raid10-8 configuration however does significantly lag behind a straight raid0-4 setup. Apparently writing to all the mirrors swamped the card a bit. The space consumed by raid0-4 and raid10-8 is identical. How important is your data?"
