Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

LSI MegaRAID SAS 9265-8i RAID Controller Review - LSI MegaRAID SAS 9265-8i RAID Controller Review
Fri, Feb 17 2012 | 1:55PM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

For years I`ve talked about RAID tuning and even gave some examples on a small scale. The LSI 9265-8i that we are looking at today takes the ability to optimize your RAID arrays to new levels and does so with a very easy to navigate user interface. The base controller with its dual-core ROC processor and 1GB DRAM cache has become the industry standard, but LSI didn`t stop there. Add on packages like LSI`s FastPath and CacheCade further enhance usability based on user need. When our 9265-8i sample first arrived we were in the process of building a super computer based on the EVGA SR-2 dual Xeon enthusiast`s board. At the time LSI was having issues with a handful of enthusiast class motherboards with the SR-2 being one of them. Since that time LSI and the motherboard makers have found and corrected several if not all of the issues. There was a time though when enthusiasts were pounding their heads against the wall trying to make everything mesh as it should."
