I need to purchase and attach a lot of disks to a Fedora Core5
box. I do not want to talk with the disk across the network. I want
the disk direct attached. From my IBM days I know I can use SSA
on AIX, is there anything like that for linux? I prefer not to use fiber
as I do not want to introduce a new technology at the moment. One solution
I thought of is something like the Dell PowerVault 220S with 14 drives
pulled through SCSI into a software RAID with md then LVM on top.

Thoughts?
