I have Server Board S5500BC with 5 Sata HDD, i want to covert them to SAS and off course I need SAS controller for that, so with wide variety of controllers im pretty lost. All I need is controller with SAS support and Mirror Raid (although i can use software mirroring in windows). So what do u reccomend ??
Highly recommend you pick a card from the http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s5500bc/sb/CS-030210.htm Tested hardware list. If you don't need RAID 5 support, you can choose http://www.intel.com/products/server/raid-controllers/SASWT4I/SASWT4I-overview.htm SASWT4I or http://www.intel.com/products/server/raid-controllers/SASUC8I/SASUC8I-overview.htm SASUC8I.
