I've heard good things about Arcea... Promise is supposed to work very
well, when it works. If they won't garuntee compatibility, I'd insist on
the 3ware, or look into Arcea.
I am completing a box for PostgreSQL server on FreeBSD. Selecting a
RAID controller I decided to go with 3ware SE9650-16, following good
opinions about 3ware controllers found on FreeBSD and PostgreSQL groups.
However my dealer suggest me to not to go with 3ware, and take Promise
SuperTrak EX16350, instead. This suggestion does not have any
technical background and it comes generally from the fact of limited
availability of 16x 3ware controllers on the local market and
immediate availability of Promise.
Is this technically a good idea to take Promise instead of 3ware or
rather I definitely should insist on 3ware and wait for it?
