    Compatibility Question: External Raid Enclosure


    Hey All,

    I'm about to get a new Dell M6700 from work. It's got some internal SSDs, but I need a high-speed external raid enclosure for forensic work & processing.

    Right now, I'm looking at installing Bodhi Linux on it and looking for an external USB 3.0 enclosure with raid0 and putting 4x 10k 600GB velociraptors in it.

    Anyone have experience/recommendations in this area?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    My suggestion if to get an esata enclosure w/ 4 drives and use the Linux soft-raid (mdm) tools to install a raid on it. I have several - they work very well. Your dell should have an external esata 2 or 3 connector that will support this. I do not recommend USB of any sort for this sort of application.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
