The new Adaptec controllers have the ability to use bad block tables and SMART functions.
I am looking to purchase 3x 6447-21U's. These servers come with the RAID-8k adapter. I will be using 4x 750GB SATA HD's per server for the RAID.
Does the Lenovo controller (RAID-8k) have the SMART function where you can monitor drive conditions to pick up early malfunction before it turns into failure?
Also, can you shut off write cacheing?
