Solaris X86 - Disc Controller Recommendations

Solaris X86 - Disc Controller Recommendations

Post by John Murtar » Thu, 30 Jul 1998 04:00:00



Folks,
       We are running Solaris 2.6 on both SPARC and x86
systems.  We are upgrading all systems to ultra fast/wide
disk -- Seagate Cheetah disk (10000 RPM).

       We added an Integrix S-Bus Wide/Ultra controller
to one of our Sparcs and it is a "screamer", we are
seeing sustained file transfers of 25 MB/Sec.

       We are using Adaptec 2940UW controllers on our
X86 systems and getting a LOT less (<8 MB/sec sustained).

       Any real experience on this?  We are thinking
of maybe trying another vendor besides Adaptec.
