|Re: [PLUG] Real (driverless) hardware RAID controller for PC?|
This is very helpful. I have two more questions:1. There are many motherboards that advertise themselves as offering onboard RAID. My understanding is that these are essentially a built-in "fake raid" controller, in that they still offload work to the OS and therefore require a driver. Is that correct?
2. Looking at the linux RAID wiki on kernel.org, it seems that no special hardware is required to set up and use RAID with mdadm--a couple of hard drives plugged into the onboard SATA controllers of any ol' motherboard would be fine. Is that also correct?
