DAMNED: why do you restart this thread again after
enough mails it shopuld be stopped?

finally it does not botehr me which hardware-crap who
is using as long mine critical one are only 14 SAS
disks for a lot of virtual servers, all with dual
channel, redundant and hotplug-able


because google generally has the strategy to use cheap hardware
in huge masses with very high redundancy while SAS stands
for high ability (dual channel ports) with higher pricses
but less hardware at all
