Re: hotswap disks on linux

Disk druid has RAID support, but I've seen many posts in different forums suggesting that it's usefulness and reliability is somewhat less than most of us desire in a production environment; particularly when a disk has a problem. It will not be until the 2.4 kernel becomes mainstream that you will see such things as logical volume management and journalling come to the table as viable methods. They exist now but without RAID support.

It seems that the best solution at the moment is to use hardware based RAID/mirroring instead. There a variety of manufacturers that support Linux with both IDE and SCSI.
