RAID Controllers & HBAs
Of course, if you're setting up one of these devices, you'll need the right accessories to ensure that it functions properly.
For example, RAID controllers are a type of hardware needed to manage the various disk drives and to allow the computer to view the data storage device as a logical unit.
Meanwhile, host bus adaptors (HBAs) can be used to connect the computer to the RAID system. They generally connect fibre channel, SCISI or eSATA devices, while ethernet HBAS and iSCSI may also be used, depending on the situation. Read moreless...
