SCSI RAID-0 : Help

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am planning to get my hands on a few 75gb or 147gb scsi drives for cheap and wanted to get a bit more info on Raid"ing" then.

If I were to buy a controller like THIS. can I put the drives in raid or do I SPECIFICALY NEED a raid controller for SCSI AND a drive controller?

So for two drives would it be like this:

SCSI controller (DRIVE 1)
SCSI controller (DRIVE 2)
SCSI RAID controller

or do some of the RAID controllers come with two connectors for SCSI drives? or is there SCSI to SATA converter etc... I know NOTHING about SCSI.

NO, the only reason you need an SCSI controller is because there's no SCSI ports onboard. There's no way a RAID SCSI controller will require a seperate SCSI controller.

SO I can use my P5NE-SLI's NVIDIA raid controller in conjunction to RAID-0 the two SCSI hard drives(which are hoocked in PCI via adapters)?

EDIT: and would I use a controller like THIS ONE?

No, you need an SCSI RAID card.

Would a card like THIS ONE HERE do as a raid controller? It says 132 MB/s burst rate. that sounds like crap since the sata too have what, 300MB/s

Or is this one better?

Yeah, SCSI RAID cards seem to have crappy burst rates. Someone else posted a link to an SCSI RAID Card it only had 80 MB/s burst.

I mean, I get 600 MB burst w/ my 7200 RPMs, so 2 SCSI 15K drives should DEFINATELY beat that.

The only way to know for sure what card you need is to know what interface the HDDs use!

Actually, that burst is rediculously low, a 15K SCSI drive by ITSELF should beat 150 MB/s

^ that's similar to what you should be looking for.

Transfer rate: 640 MB/sec peak, and it's a PCI x8 bus, much better then the PCI slots that the other cards you linked were.

(Yes, I know it's rediculously expensive, but let's put it this way, I paid $330 for a good SATA raid card.. SCSI is more expensive then SATA, which means a good SCSI RAID card will cost you at LEAST a few hundred $)

Look for something that uses the PCIe bus rather then PCI.
