Comment IDE Raid story (Score 1) 597

I work for an ISP in the Midwest. We were severely limited on budget when we built our new data center. The CIO at the time insisted that we use the Promise Fastrak IDE raid cards (Under Redhat Linux doing Raid 1) Within a year; we had two separate system failures linked to the Raid controller. Both times, a single drive would fail and then Fastrak card would kill the second drive while attempting to recover and then die itself. Frustrating to no end, especially in light of the system with an Adaptec raid card doing Raid 5 that had been running non stop for approximately 3 years. Wiser heads now prevail and we are moving everything over to Adaptec SCSI raid cards (2100S to be exact)
