[ubuntu] HP ProLiant for Network Storage and Webserver

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am trying to choose a server for the company I work for, we need to hold large amounts of audio files, which won't be accessed very often, but we may need to process 200GB of audio in a sitting when we do. Does anyone have any experience with the hardware RAID controller on the "HP ProLiant DL120 G7 Server"? Would I get better performance out of using the Ubuntu software controller? Is there a better server I have overlooked? (Hardware)
