    Question Onboard SATA Raid for server?

    Hi,

    I'm working on setup a server (web, email, ftp, mysql, ssh, etc, all-in-one) for hosting propouses.

    So for the hardware I've got one question: Is enought good the VT8237 chipset based onboard raid controllers for SATA?

    I'm gona to run it under linux

    Thanks,
    Sorry for my english, I know it sucks.

    I've heard of people having problems with this chipset with kernel versions earlier than 2.6.x. Go with a distribution that has the 2.6.x kernel to save yourself some headaches.

    Ich, can't stand onboard RAID of any kind personally, much prefer using an add-in card, or Zero Channel RAID...

    I don't have to look for trouble. It seems to know pretty much all the time where I am.
