SSDs for metadata

Forums: 

I talked with someone who added some Intel SD3700s to a Promise x30. They used them for metadata on a volume with an extremely diverse set of data (big and small), but primarily so they could get better performance for the millions of tiny files they were serving. The person I spoke with said they actually worked with Promise to make sure drive support was included in the latest firmware. Our ActiveRAIDs are out of warranty now, but I'd still like to get a couple more years out of them.

Has anyone tried something similar with Active Storage hardware?

SanLink2 Mavericks Beta Driver

Does anyone have a driver for Promise SanLink2 different from the 1.0.39 on the web site. Currently, I have new SanLink2 and new MacPro's, but can't see my ActiveRAID LUN's and it looks like someone on here said that the first driver had a bug, but that there was a new driver. I have contacted support, but doubt I hear back on weekend and really need to get this working.

If someone has a driver that works with SanLink2 and Active Storage RAID, please contact me.

Looking for second hand Active Raid storage

Hi,

I'm looking for a ActiveRaid main chassis (with or without drives) or expansions chassis to replace an Expansion chassis that is giving me trouble. I'm also looking for some spare Active raid controllers.

We are a post-production company based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Bart
