      It's for my AIX, Oracle Solaris, and HP-UX Distros, honest....

        I took a look at the prices of this stuff and can't figure out why people would buy them. Is it just for the turnkey solution?

        I literally took a AMD machine out of a skip, put new memory and power supply on it and added a 4disk RAID. Than installed a linux distro and off I went. that was five years ago. Only issue I had is finding a small ATA disk as the boot drive is ATA. The raid disks are SATA.

          Turnkey, ease of use, partner-acceptance-factor and resilience. Most consumer RAID cards are tulipe and software raid is rarely the place to be, unless you're doing something with JBOD.

          If I wanted a NAS for the wife and I to store things on I'd go off the shelf, for sure.

            Nobody should be using RAID5 for anything, ideally.

              Going for a 4 disk RAID10, need to work out if I should bother keeping the good 2TB drive in my existing NAS or not as its a fair few years old anyway
