Adaptec RAID 3805 8-port SATA and SAS Controller Review
Posted on: 05/30/2007 08:02 PM

Legit Reviews tested the Adaptec RAID 3805 8-port SATA and SAS Controller with 8 Western Digital Raptor drivers in 11 RAID configurations on Linux

Raid10 performance was a little surprising. having 4 drives in raid10 is slightly faster than just 2 in raid0. This is likely just some experimental error. The Raid10-8 configuration however does significantly lag behind a straight raid0-4 setup. Apparently writing to all the mirrors swamped the card a bit. The space consumed by raid0-4 and raid10-8 is identical. How important is your data?
