LSI LSI00247 MegaRAID FastPath Software
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs It works. 06/05/2014

This review is from: LSI LSI00247 MegaRAID FastPath Software

Pros: Unlocks advanced capabilities of LSI raid cards.

Cons: Nothing.

WD My Cloud EX4 16TB: 4-Bay Personal Cloud Storage WDBWWD0160KBK-NESN
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Terrible product. 04/27/2014

This review is from: WD My Cloud EX4 16TB: 4-Bay Personal Cloud Storage WDBWWD0160KBK-NESN

Pros: Unit looks nice, software is fairly simple to setup and configure. This would be a great product with the exception of a major flow where all data is lost under high loads.

Cons: I own two of these units, a 16TB and an 8TB. In a RAID-5. I've been able to replicate this on each unit twice, leading me to believe the underlying OS is responsible.

If you put this unit under very high load for extended periods of time, the device will become extremely slow, even after turning off IO inducing apps. The website UI at this point will only show a 500 status code error page, preventing any device administration. Upon hard reboot of the device, all data will be lost.

I can understand the slow IO under high load, it's a consumer device. But the fact it's so easy to replicate total array failure is unacceptable. This was reproduced with the currently available firmware while using SMB & NFS shares against an R5 array. Absolutely nothing fancy going on, just a lot of IO. (Transferring 6TB data sets of mostly 5-100k files to the units)

SUPERMICRO CSE-216BA-R920LPB Black 2U Rackmount Chassis 920W
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Another solid SuperMicro product. 03/01/2014

This review is from: SUPERMICRO CSE-216BA-R920LPB Black 2U Rackmount Chassis 920W

Pros: A great case that is spacious and easy to install all of your hardware in.

Cons: Take note that you need low profile hardware with this case. If you are getting ANY 24 port RAID card available on the market today, none of them are low profile. You need the version of the case with horizontal PCI slots. A very costly mistake I made.

Other Thoughts: Supermicro makes great products, this is just another line of products I would have no second thoughts about deploying in my production environment.
