View Full Version : [ubuntu] Best option for SATA RAID controller with native support?

September 24th, 2013, 11:37 PM
Hello all! New to the Ubuntu thing and trying to set up a Ubuntu 12.04 x64 LTS server. Unfortunately the 640L I'm trying to use doesn't seem to have driver support (at least none that I understand how to use) during the install.

What I need is a 3+ (So a 4 or 8, most likely) port SATA RAID card that would fit in a PCI-E x16 slot (so x1, x4, or x8) that supports RAID 5.

Are there any cards under the 150 price point that would be natively supported by the copy of Ubuntu i'm trying to install?

Thanks for the help in advance!
