[TSSR] LSI 9265 v Adaptec 6805 Review

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
here is a great review pitting the LSI 9265 v the Adaptec 6805. Using 8 OWC SSDs and 4 Sandisk Enterprise Flash Drives, there are definitely some insane results;)
Quote:
With $45000 in hardware, over 100 hours spent pushing it to it’s limit, speeds of 2.7GB/s and over 461,800 IOPS, we are fairly certain that this RAID Card and SSD review will be one of our most exciting reports, to date, and not matched anytime soon.

Today we are going to go head-to-head with the LSI 9265-8i and the Adaptec 6805 RAID cards, these being two of the most powerful RAID devices available worldwide. Grab a seat and buckle up as the hunt for the most powerful 6Gb/s RAID card solution is on! Who will emerge the victor?

Our goal is to showcase the raw power of both solutions under some of the most demanding situations. In the world of servers and datacenters, the most power in the smallest package is ‘King’ and both of these devices aim to deliver!

We have amassed several sponsors to partake in this shootout which assures us that we have top performing storage devices available today, both commercially and in the enterprise sector. The purpose is simply to explore the absolute maximum of 6Gb/s RAID performance. In order to saturate these controllers, we had to bring in the heavyweights of SSD and EFD performance as the only way to illustrate the true capabilities of these controllers is to have the absolute fastest devices available today.

I always buy Adaptec cards because of their support, now for customers I may need to start looking into the LSI cards.

Yes, the LSI cards are vastly outperforming anything right now, other than other cards using the same ROC, of course.

Wow what a beast! LSI really blew the Adaptec out of the water.

And what a mouth watering test rig they had. I think I just stared for 5 mins haha!
