I am still examining ideas before I build a new server. So which RAID cards are supported for Ubuntu. Ideally I want 16 SATA or 4 SAS with port expanders.

I also need it to be PCIe which is far faster then the old PCI-X that vendors still flog.

I am looking at motherboards and the new Tyan P991 seems to be suitable. Lots of memory, and 4 processors.

I wanted to use a 16 disk rack mounted chassis. So I can feed the machine huge amounts of storage.
