Promise Raid Controllers

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I work with a company that I can not name for obvious reasons. This company had a very nice long drawn out tug of war with the Promise company about the RAID controllers. It took a lot of work to get them to admit to it but they finally admitted that thier cards are not, I repeat not hardware RAID. they are primarily used in windows systems and that is what the company I work with used them in. Seems the drivers they supply for windows also includes the software that makes the card perform as a RAID controller. Those of us in the Linux world have noticed that using the Promise cards is a prob (Hardware)
