One of the main reasons we now stick with Intel controllers is due to hot swap enclosure compatibility questions. When we are going to install a SRCSAS18E and 10 hot swap drives with an Intel Hot Swap Enclosure or Enclosures, we would configure the following in a SC5400 chassis:
- SRCSAS18E (120 Drive capable)
- 4 Drive Hot Swap Enclosure with Expander (2 SATA Connectors)
- 6 Drive Hot Swap Enclosure (6 SATA Connectors)
- Intel RAID Controller list including integrated, PCI-E, PCI-X, and PCI: Intel RAID Controllers.
Our membership has been very beneficial to us! If you are a system builder, and registered with the big 3 distributors, then check out the program.
