Hello. I would like to buy a hardware RAID controller to which I'll connect two identical 1TB disks (can't remember the exact model). I'm going for RAID 1 as my first priority is to never lose any data saved on these disks. I tried to make a fakeRAID earlier this week, but it stopped working after a kernel (I think) update. Now my PC randomly boots on a disk or another.

I have very little experience with RAID, and this is why I need some help. I'll install Ubuntu 12.04.

  • Are there hardware RAID controllers that work better with Ubuntu than others?
  • What would be your first pick?

Thanks a lot for any piece of advice you might have.
