Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions to offer for inexpensive
hardware RAID systems based on SATA disks? I'd prefer an independent
RAID box, with a suitable low-cost interface to a server host, rather
than suggestions such as "just buy a big enclosure and a bunch of SATA
drives and a RAID card".
I'm hoping for something cheaper than the $10-20K range for things like
Dell's PowerVault MD3000. And preferably something I can easily
populate with 3rd-party SATA drives, e.g. on empty hot-swap sleds, just
to keep costs down.
