I haven’t checked Anandtech in months, but felt the desire tonight. Frankly, its the best hardware review site it is, and Anand Lal Shimpi’s book The AnandTech Guide to PC Gaming Hardware is quite simply the best book ever written about X86 hardware, bar none, suffering only because its title massively misrepresents the bredth of content.
Reguardless, I was felt the ned to point everyone toward an excellent article written by Johan De Gelas: Server Guide part 2: Affordable and Manageable Storage. Being Anandtech its vendor neutral and focuses on the disk technology and not so much how its put together into an enterprise package. This is a must read for anyone interested in storage!
