Alright, in a previous thread I stated my intentions of going with a OpenSolaris box running RAID ZFS - however, since now I am beginning to wonder about power draw, and considering how I have some debts being repaid soon, I was wondering if I should try something less obscure. So, onto more RAID on-the-cheap! Basically, I need to know what I can expect with the combination of these two products - the Highpoint RocketRAID 2314MS and the 1U rack enclosure EliteSTOR ES104TI (Links here and here, respectively). The 2314MS has had a great review on AMUG, so that's why I jumped onto that controller, but as according to this page on the highpoint website, the 2314MS is not on the list for being supported in the Powermac. Literally, the $100 question And I'm assuming that I also have to supply my own MiniSAS cable. And now onto a question about drives, and in a sense about the enclosure. The enclosure (according to Sans Digital) accepts SAS drives - for high write speeds, I assume I am better off with SAS instead of SATA, right?
