    Feedback from Techs that work in data centers

    We've got some Nortel QIP software that's garbage. We're looking for something better at the moment as well. The only good things about our current setup is: Web based, and uses logins so you can only mess up your own deligated subnet, not every one's.

    HP MSA60 Hard Drive Cages

    I don't think they're ^^ the right drive sleds. He needs the newer kind with a slightly different handle on the front.

    What are some good PATA Raid cards? (Proven Old timers?)

    My server's use DFS to replicate to each other. The storage arrays are all RAID 1 or 5 and they're backed up to a DLT autoloader. I don't use anything 'lower level' than that like Ghost.

    What are some good PATA Raid cards? (Proven Old timers?)

    I love my 3Ware 7500's. I have 2 of the 7504 (4 ports), a 7508 and my friend is running the 7512. Haven't had a controller failure years of operation.

    best way to get lots of IDE ports?

    Ahh opps, someone must have bought up the 7500's he used to have. They are terribly old cards, and do not support drives above 137Gb
