5 out of 5 eggsPlug and play with Solaris ZFS

Pros: Did not need to compile any drivers in Solaris 11. Saw all 8 3tb drives, torture tested for 48 hours in a raidz2, including doing naughty things like pulling drives and adding known good and bad drives from the pool, ssd caching, etc, constant 250-300 mb/s read-write over 10g network on one of our xeon 1230v3 32gb servers. Zfs was able to read all smart data, including good and bad sectors, temperature, operation time, etc, just as an hba is meant to do.

Currently running 2 of them in each box, 20*3tb per 4u including one sas from on-board, 5 4u's in one zfs san.

Cons: gets a tad warm, temp sensor saw 50c at the end of the torture test, and we are running them in norco 4u cases, 100cfm front fans. I would not run this in a case with little airflow.

Other Thoughts: This is an HBA, not a raid controller. This is meant for software raid solutions such as ZFS.

I would recommend this as an inexpensive controller for anything related to zraid, from freenas for soho, all the way up to solaris for enterprise. I did not test compatibility with freeBSD because we are not running it, but I imagine it would do just fine because it's a standard marvell controller.

We did not purchase from the Egg, we purchased in bulk directly from supermicro, in case you are wondering.

4 out of 5 eggsBeware "x16, x4 mode"

Pros: All the ports I need. Great price.

Cons: Requires true x8/x16 slot
No S.M.A.R.T. attributes with most recent driver

Other Thoughts: First installed in 2nd x16 PCIe slot, which is "x4 mode". MB is ASUS M4A87TD-EVO (AMD 870/850 chipset). OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Running JBOD. Reads work ok, but writes a problem. System was copying numerous 5GB files + many little ones from network to disk. After 3 or 4 big ones, writes failed with "cannot access drive X" or blue screen. Tried various driver versions, no change. Finally swapped slots with video card so it now has a true x16 slot. Copied 15 big + 50 small files no problem. Only 4 stars for not documenting.

Most recent driver from Supermicro website is storport. It doesn't provide access to S.M.A.R.T. data. Have to use miniport version of previous driver rev to get it. This would be a big problem if I had to run 24/7. I don't, so only one star off.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfectly good linux support?

Pros: Haven't had time to really put this card through its paces yet, but wanted to mention...on recent Ubuntu (13.10 server) it does "just work." Not sure if that's because it works in the mainline kernel now or because someone downstream patched it up to work with this card - exercise for the reader to do the diffs on drivers/scsi/mvsas if you need to know - but support in Ubuntu should make utilizing this card no big deal.

Cons: May be a bit finnicky in re: motherboard compatibility...didn't work on the first two boards I tried it on. Was fairly sure it was defective, was then surprised to see it light right up on a 3rd mobo. A bios upgrade got it working on one of the first two boards I tried.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality card

Pros: SFF-8087 ports.
Actually maximizes pci channels, unlike many other SATA/SAS boards (slow).
Cheap.
Supported by linux.

Cons: None, it just works.

Other Thoughts: This is an awesome and cheap card!

For the linux support comments, it would be nice if it just worked... but the issue is minor. This specific device isn't in the kernel for the mvsas module. You'll need to patch the kernel to add support (only 9 lines for the vendor info) and that's it.

For the SFF-8087 break out cable comment. Really? If you don't know what SFF-8087 is, then you should not have gotten this card... and then wrote badly about it. Also the lacking cable is because not everyone needs a break out cable. If you get a drive backplane with SFF-8087, then you can run a straight single cable (much less clutter).

I'll be picking up 2 more of these soon for my media server.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Will update later

Cons: Will update later

Other Thoughts: I am giving it 4 eggs for now because Newegg AND SuperMicro fail to tell you if you need a forward or reverse breakout cable (SAS to SATA). You need a forward cable for this as the reverse cable failed to detect any drives.

3 out of 5 eggsLinux, not out of the box!

Pros: Good price

Cons: I'm sure many people that know their way around a linux kernel could build the drive into most distro's. But save your self the time and spend $50 more and get a board with a LSI chip.
The LSI boards are mostly supported in Linux.
