  1. Hardware Recommendation for setting up software raid/LVM/NFS for 10+NFS clients

    Hi all,

    I am looking to build a software raid-5 system with LVM and NFS that
    will serve around 10+ clients in the company I work in. Could someone
    point to a good hardware configuration that would work for this
    purpose?

    Thanks in advance,
    -Ankur

    If you're building a RAID5, you need at least three disks. Why not just
    get a true hardware RAID controller? You can get a 4-port SATA
    controller fairly inexpensively.
