    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.

    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.
