Best array controller (RAID) to choose?

I'm configuring a ML370 server for use as an Exchange server (about 20 users) and I'm not sure what the best array controller to choose. What are the things I have to take into account when I'm choosing a controller?

The following will be my drive setup:
Array 1: (2) - 9 GB drives - RAID 1 - ( OS )
Array 2: (3) - 18 GB drives - RAID 5 - ( Exchange )

Re: Best array controller (RAID) to choose?

You can use the integrated smart array controller but there is no read cache so you might loose some performance there. The other Ultra3 card is the 53xx smart array controller. There are som many options for this controller. Can you give me your e-mail address please, then we can setup for me to give you a call.
