Got 2 questions about SAS raid controller cards and HBAs.
If I had 256 SSD drives (using SAS expanders of course) in raid 0 connected to a 6Gb/s SAS raid controller (PCIe 2.0), what theoretical speed would I get:
- 256 x 6GB/s ?
- 6GB/s ?
- The maximum speed of the PCIe 2.0 port?
Does the reply to the first question also apply to HBAs, provided a software raid is used instead?
