Sata Vs Scsi Raid

Recommended Posts

I'm trying figure out which would be faster: SATA with RAID or SCSI with RAID. I've weighed the facts that SATA drives only come up to 10,000 RPM while SCSI drives come in 15,000 RPM models, yet I'm not sure which would be better. Any suggestions?

Oh wow, I'm glad to see such quick responses!

 

Now SCSI requires a controller to run right? I'm a little unclear on how the controllers for SCSI work. it seems like a $200 controller like the one I'm getting below only supports two drives?

Do you have a server board? Cause that card will only work in a 64bit 133mhz PCI-X slot. If you dont have PCI-X then I wouldnt get it, it will not work.

 

Since that is a single channel board you can support up to 15 devices on it. Each device will need a scsi id from 0-15 and the board must have one id for itself.

 

edit: oops, he answered first.

That card will work in a 32-bit PCI slot ;)

 

You may want to do a bit of research on SCSI if you're going to be purchasing it.

 

u160 and u320 support 15 devices/channel, while the older technologies support 7 devices/channel

 

No they don't have to be in RAID, but that card does support it
