Many years have been users of LSI 8708EM2 under Windows I tried this raid was running, monitor worked, comfortable GUI tools to check and rebuild the array worked. Turned the server on Ubuntu and it turned out sad: LSI was bought by Avago Technologies, and that, in turn, merged with Broadcom, and to support the old controllers LSI threw it all away.
Want to buy a new controller to replace the old, whose range of study? Which manufacturers have consistently been producing and supporting drivers and software for Linux?
Adaptec no options or are there alternatives?
