Quick question:
(for me, a miracle!  ;-)  )

Dell have pre-announced their blade solution:

Press release

I noticed that it has a new RAID solution - the PERC 4/IM
Does anyone know what flavour this is?  Adaptec/aacraid or AMI/megaraid or other?

I prefer the AMI cards under Linux, but the new PE1650 doesn't offer this for internal disks.  I'd be interested to know what the PERC 4/IM is, and how well it will work with Linux.
