Thanks everyone for the informative replies! We had a PERC 5/i with a
couple of SATA disks but I wasn't really that impressed with it. It was
ok, but raw throughput from each disk was about 25% faster when it was
connected to a desktop PC instead. I guess if you have enough disks you
don't notice the drop off.
And yes, we have had a CERC which I'm glad to hear is as bad as it gets!
Same we can't get hot-swap with the onboard controllers, without that
perhaps the H700 is worth looking in to...
